Answer :

Since the moon is in uniform circular motion with earth as the center. Therefore, when the gravitational interaction between the moon and the earth disappears the centripetal force due to which moon is revolving around the earth will become zero and it moves tangentially to the position it was present. Actually, gravitational force doesn’t disappear, so these worries are useless.
