Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's author pal has moved to deny their tell-all book will be updated with "explosive" new chapters.
It had been reported that Finding Freedom will be added to with new chapters covering the couple's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The Sunday Times claimed it will address allegations of bullying made against the Duchess of Sussex by former Palace staff and Prince Philip's death.
But Omid Scobie, who penned the book with Carolyn Durand, denied the claims.
He wrote on Twitter: "A not-so-accurate report about Finding Freedom in the Sunday Times, who didn't even bother asking for comment before falsely claiming a paperback edition will feature new chapters that will "reopen royal rifts".
"Why let facts get in the way of a spicy story though, eh?"
It was reported the new version of the book was set to be released in August, featuring a look at the couple's new life in America as well as their lucrative deals with streaming services Netflix and Spotify.
A source told the Sunday Times: "The Oprah interview detonated a bomb under the royal family and most of them are still reeling in shock.
"The book will not help."
Another added: "After Oprah, what else is there to say?"
The explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey deepened the royal rift with Harry and Meghan making a number of claims and accusations against the Royal family.
Tensions between Harry and his family appeared to ease at Prince Philip's funeral last week.
Harry could be seen chatting with Prince William after the Windsor Castle service, the first time they have seen each other in more than a year.

It was also the first time they had been seen together in public after Harry and Meghan quit as senior royals.
When questioned about an alleged rift with William in 2019, Harry said he loved his brother dearly but they were "on different paths" and have "good days" and "bad days".
Mr Scobie has now rubbished reports that wounds are set to be reopened by details of the family rift appearing in print.
The Queen was said to be "disappointed" with the Oprah interview, while William was reportedly annoyed that details of private conversations with Harry were leaked in the US media.
