Son Endorses Bob Marley's Controversial Book

The son of reggae legend has defended his decision to publish a controversial book about his late father. Ky-Mani Marley tried to delay the release of "Dear Dad: Where's the Family in Our Family, Today?" after realizing it could upset his relatives, but the tome hit shelves in February, to mark what would have been his father's 65th birthday.

The book's cover boasts it contains the "story the Marley family apparently didn't want you to know". But Marley took issue with his publishing firm over the claim and on Tuesday, February 16, his editor Farrah Gray agreed to pull the tagline from the book's second edition.

And Marley has now spoken out about the controversy surrounding the expose. In a post on his MySpace page, he writes, "The book was not an attack on my family. I love my brothers and sisters more than anyone can know."
