Movie mogul Jerry Weintraub regrets failing to reconcile with late folk singer John Denver before his fatal 1997 plane crash, because pair ended their business relationship on bitter terms.
The Ocean's Eleven producer, who was Denver's manager before he began working in film, details his rocky relationship with the late musician in forthcoming memoir, When I Stop Talking, You'll Know I'm Dead.
Before the singer's death, Denver fired Weintraub, and claimed in their final fallout the mogul threw him out of his office and called him a "Nazi".
And Weintraub admits he still has deep regret about parting ways on bad terms, reports the National Enquirer.
He writes, "I considered him a great friend. He was in my will as one of the executors of my estate, taking care of my kids should anything happen to me. We were that close."
The book is set to hit shelves in April (10).
