Live to Tell: My Life as Madonna's Nanny, book to be published by Melissa Dumas has been canceled, Publishers Marketplace reported yesterday.
"It will not be publishing the memoir to be authored by Madonna's former nanny, Melissa Dumas. The rights to the book have been released to the author, who is represented by [Sharlene Martin of] Martin Literary Management.
I deeply regret that Crown Publishing decided not to move forward in publishing Melissa Dumas’ book," Martin told The Book Standard. "I had a wonderful experience with them with a previous nanny tome, You’ll Never Nanny in This Town Again, and had hoped to repeat that experience."
According to Britain's The Mirror, "Madonna, predictably enough, has risen from the lotus position to turn the full force of her legal team against rogue nanny Melissa Dumas in an attempt to silence her."
