I feel lost in the meta discussion about if it’s reasonable/acceptable for writers to use details of the lives of others in their writing

Like roman à clef is a thing, and writers like Hemingway were pretty unabashed and direct about the inclusion of the lives of his friends in e.g the sun also rises (though I can’t find any discussion about whether they approved of it)

I’m not a writer so my evaluation means zilch but yeah
