Simon & Schuster will no longer publish the 59-year-old motivational speaker’s co-authored book, “The Path: Accelerating Your Journey to Financial Freedom,” after a bombshell report indicating he made , as well as exposed himself to female assistants, .
“We are not proceeding with publication of ‘The Path,’” a source told the news outlet.
Robbins’ lawyers, however, denied the book won’t be released. “To state or suggest otherwise is absolutely false,” they said in a statement to BuzzFeed.
The publisher reportedly initially advertised the book’s arrival online, but stopped after a slew of sexual misconduct allegations against the author surfaced earlier this month.
The accused Robbins of having his bodyguards prowl audiences for attractive female guests to bring to him, in addition to berating fans who were victims of rape and abuse.

In a , Robbins claimed the BuzzFeed report was an “inaccurate, agenda-driven version of the past, pierced with falsehoods.”
“Let me be clear, while my open-classroom therapeutic methods are not for everyone, and while I am on my best day still only an imperfect being, I have never behaved in the reckless, irresponsible, or malicious manner intimated by false, unfounded, and incendiary allegations suggested by Buzzfeed story-tellers,” Robbins wrote.
Robbins’ spokesperson, Jennifer Connelly, denied plans for the book were impacted by the misconduct allegations.
“’The Path: Accelerating Your Journey to Financial Freedom’ was a book to be written by Peter Mallouk with contributions from Tony Robbins,” Connelly said in a statement to The Post. “As Mr. Mallouk has publicly stated that while his book was in the works, contractual terms were never reached nor finalized with its planned publisher. It is a false and misleading characterization to state that this was a book authored by Mr. Robbins.”
“After several months of negotiations, Creative Planning and Mr. Robbins recently ended their professional business association that began in 2016,” the statement continued. “This decision was amicable and predated any of the recent false reporting from BuzzFeed.”
