Morrissey’s autobiography has revealed his first full relationship came with a man when he was in his 30s.
The former Smith singer also used his autobiography to criticize the UK legal system and music business.
Morrissey, 54, was scathing about the judges in his 1990s legal battle with former bandmate Mike Joyce, describing one as the “pride of the pipsqueakery”.
The Smiths’ record label Rough Trade, he said, had been “brutally drab”.
The singer accused music paper NME of being out to “get Morrissey” in the 1990s.
Morrissey, who is normally protective of his private life, opened up about a relationship with Jake Walters that began in 1994.

He wrote about how Jake Walters followed him back to his house after meeting him at a restaurant and “steps inside and stays for two years”.
“For the first time in my life the eternal <<I>> becomes <<we>>, as, finally, I can get on with someone,” he wrote.
Morrissey also revealed how he later discussed having a baby – or, as he put it, a “mewling miniature monster” – with Tina Dehgani, with whom he described having an “uncluttered commitment”.
Giving his version of his 1996 court battle with Mike Joyce, who was seeking 25% of The Smiths’ earnings, Morrissey accused the drummer of “constant inaccuracies and assumptions vomited out with leaden fatigue” in court.
The group, one of the most revered bands in British music, split up in 1987 after five years together.
The presiding judge, John Weeks, came in for particularly scathing criticism, portrayed caustically as an “unsmiling Lord of the Hunt, with an immutable understanding of the world of The Smiths”.
“The pride of the pipsqueakery, John Weeks begins his judgment by falling flat on his face: He brilliantly announces to the world how The Smiths formed in 1992 – his judicial accuracy not to be questioned!” Morrissey wrote.
Morrissey autobiography was published on Thursday as a Penguin Classic. It had been due for release in September, but was delayed by what Morrissey described as “a last-minute content disagreement”.
Morrissey has halted plans to release his autobiography, three days before it was due to be published.
The memoirs were set to give details about the 54-year-old former Smiths frontman’s life growing up in Manchester and his relationship with former songwriting partner Johnny Marr.
A statement on his fan website said there had been a “last minute content disagreement” with its publisher.
A Penguin Books spokeswoman said there would be no comment on the issue.

“Although Morrissey’s autobiography was set to be available throughout the UK on September 16th, a last-minute content disagreement between Penguin Books and Morrissey has caused the venture to collapse,” the statement said.
“No review copies were printed and Morrissey is now in search of a new publisher.”
It is the latest setback for Morrissey, who suffered a series of what he referred to as “medical mishaps” which led to him cancelling his US tour earlier this year.
Morrissey was also forced to cancel part of his South American tour in July due, he said, to a “lack of funding”.
Brigitte Nielsen revealed that she and Arnold Schwarzenegger had an affair in her own memoir, last year.
And now Arnold Schwarzenegger has confirmed that he cheated on his then girlfriend and now ex-wife Maria Shriver with actress Brigitte Nielsen.
The Terminator star has made the explosive revelation in his own new autobiography, Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, 65, says that he and Brigitte Nielsen shared a passionate tryst whilst filming their sword and sorcery/action film Red Sonja in 1985.
At the time, Arnold Schwarzenegger was dating and living with Maria Shriver, who he went on to marry a year later.
Meanwhile, in 1985, Brigitte Nielsen was married to fellow action star and one of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s pals, Sylvester Stallone.
In her own book You Only Get One Life, Brigitte Nielsen, who for years has struggled with alcohol addiction, claims she didn’t know Arnold Schwarzenegger was involved with another woman during their affair.
His book has become one of the most talked about celebrity autobiography in recent memory.
But the action star is said to be keeping all the profits of the book to himself.
Earlier this week it was revealed that Arnold Schwarzenegger did not send his estranged wife a copy of his book, as he does not want her to claim a share of the money that it is making.
The Terminator star is reportedly hell-bent on keeping all of the proceeds from the tome for himself, even though his relationship with Maria Shriver is a key strand of his story.
Sources close to the couple made the shocking claims to TMZ.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver were together for 34 years and married for 25, and their times together are exhaustively dealt with in the forthcoming book.
They married in April 1986, and have four children together – Katherine, 22, Christina, 21, Patrick, 19, and 15-year-old Christopher.
However, Arnold Schwarzenegger has allegedly made it clear to her that the book is his property, and she will not be getting her hands on any part of his multi-million dollar advance or the bumper royalties.
It has also been claimed the love cheat has been trying to give Maria Shriver a raw deal during financial settlement negotiations.
An insider said: “Arnold has been really stingy with Maria and the kids, which is amazing considering what he did.”
Apparently Arnold Schwarzenegger is treating the divorce like just another business deal, rather than seeing the cash sum as a symbol of the parting of the relationship he had with the mother of his children.
This is despite the sources also claiming he begged for her to return to him as recently as last week.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the 56-year-old author and activist turned down the request.
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s representative reportedly told TMZ divorce settlement negotiations are ongoing so no agreement has been struck.
Bobby Brown is set to claim Whitney Houston got him into drugs in a follow up to his 2008 autobiography tome.
Bobby Brown, 43, is planning to reveal the details of his life with Whitney Houston in a book about the late singer in a follow up to the 2008 tome, “Bobby Brown: The Truth, the Whole Truth and Nothing But”, written after their divorce in 2007 which contained secrets about their relationship.
According to a gagging clause meant Bobby Brown could not say everything he wanted to in the first tome, but insiders now believe the rapper is going to “cleanse himself of all responsibility” over the Whitney Houston’s drug use in his forthcoming release following her death last month.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: “Bobby knows people will buy the book, whatever it says. And unlike last time, Whitney is not here to defend herself.
“He’s free to say whatever he wants and will undoubtedly paint himself as a grieving saint.”
“I never used cocaine until after I met Whitney. Before then, I had experimented with other drugs, but marijuana was my drug of choice,” Bobby Brown wrote in his 2008 tome.
“She used code words when ordering drugs like <<boy>> for heroin and <<girl>> for cocaine.
“At one point in my life, I used drugs uncontrollably. I was using everything I could get my hands on, from cocaine to heroin, weed and cooked cocaine.”
Bobby Brown is set to claim Whitney Houston got him into drugs in a follow up to his 2008 autobiography tome
Bobby Brown said in the book that his 15-year marriage to whitney Houston was doomed from the start.
“Within the first year, we separated, with several more to follow,” Bobby Brown wrote.
“I think we got married for all the wrong reasons. Now, I realize Whitney had a different agenda than I did when we got married. … I believe her agenda was to clean up her image, while mine was to be loved and have children.”
The 2008 book contains allegations that part of the reason Whitney Houston married bad-boy singer Bobby Brown, a former member of New Edition and onetime solo star, was that she was under pressure to mute tabloid rumors that she was having a lesbian affair with her assistant Robyn Crawford.
“The media was accusing her of having a bisexual relationship with her assistant, Robin Crawford,” he wrote.
“Since she was the American Sweetheart and all, that didn’t go too well with her image. … In Whitney’s situation, the only solution was to get married and have kids. That would kill all speculation, whether it was true or not. In the short, I think I got caught up in the politics and ended up marrying one of the biggest stars in the world.”
Bobby Brown admitted that he too was to blame for their messy breakup and that he was often unfaithful to his ex-wife.
“I am guilty of sleeping with other women. … Women are always throwing themselves at you. I’m only human, so I would make the mistake and bite the hook sometimes. … I let the testosterone take over,” he wrote.
The 2008 autobiography’s promotional materials claimed that Bobby Brown dated Madonna and Janet Jackson, in addition to sleeping with “thousands of women.
Bobby Brown – who had daughter Bobbi Kristina, 19, with Whitney Houston – also claims he will divulge details about a previous relationship with Madonna.
The rapper has been quoted as saying: “By the time I brought out my third single I was one of the biggest stars in the world.
“Madonna used to open up shows for New Edition in New York.
“Running into her and getting to know her better at the height of my success was like a reunion.”
Whitney Houston confessed to using “rock cocaine” and marijuana during a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2009 and it is believed her shock death at the age of 48 was caused by a lethal combination of alcohol and prescription drugs.
