According to the AP story:
The executor of Dee Dee Ramone’s estate has gone to court to stop publication of a book about the late punk rocker by his first wife.
Executor Ira Herzog says Vera Davie of Port St. Lucie, Fla., violated an agreement to let him review and change anything she wrote about the bassist.
Herzog’s lawsuit in Manhattan’s state Supreme Court uses Ramone’s real name, Douglas Glenn Colvin. Colvin was with the Ramones from their creation in 1974 until 1989. He died in June 2002 at age 50 in Los Angeles.
Davie’s book is "Poisoned Heart: I Married Dee Dee Ramone," published by Phoenix Books of Beverly Hills under the pen name Vera Ramone King.
Phoenix Books did not immediately return a call for comment.

From the Back Cover:
"I’ll always be grateful to Vera and thank her for loving and taking such good care of my son for so many years. Her story tells it all and this final tribute to Dee Dee will keep his legacy alive long after he’s gone. I know he’s smiling down from heaven."
"Vera Ramone was Dee Dee Ramone’s wife, lover, punching bag, babysitter, and support system. In this riveting memoir of a romance on the edge, she chronicles both the recklessness and the poetry of a disturbed but talented punk god."
––Michael Musto, Village Voice
"The sweet, heartbreaking tale of Vera Ramone’s shattered romance with Dee Dee unflinchingly told from the flickering gloom and glitter of the Punk bunker."
––David Dalton, founder of Rolling Stone magazine and author of El Sid: Saint Vicious
"As Dee Dee Ramone’s wife, Vera Ramone King was half of punk-rock’s royal couple––but at tremendous cost. Her inspiring memoir ‘Poisoned Heart,’ while vividly portraying a marriage savaged by the late Ramone’s mental illness, also shows King to be a true survivor, not only of an abusive relationship but one of the most exhilarating periods in rock ‘n’ roll history…. ‘I have chosen, rather than to cry over what I’ve lost, to smile about what I’ve had,’ she concludes, her own heart anything but poisoned."
