Did Dov Charney Just Land A $500K Book Deal?

A tipster tells us that the book world is buzzing about a major book deal made today. Apparently American Apparel's director of marketing got a half a million dollars as an advance for a book called Confessions. Our confidant writes,

A publisher wouldn't shell out that kind of money for a first time author unless there was dirt in it. I'm wondering if it is the first Dov Charney tell-all and they're being secretive about it. My guess is that "expose" about the media stuff is a cover.

An excellent theory! Do you know what's up? If you see something, say something. Email us with info.

UPDATE: Could it be this guy?
