Van Morrison not the daddy
Van Morrison has again refuted claims he has become a dad for the third time.
The 64-year-old singer was reported last month to have fathered a baby with his tour manager Gigi Lee but is adamant the claims are false.
He said in a statement: "There is no truth in the suggestion I have recently become a father."
The birth of George Ivan Morrison III was announced on his official website, but the posting was blamed on a hacker and was not made by the 'Brown Eyed Girl' singer or Gigi.
But now a friend of 42-year-old Gigi's, Carla Higdon, has suggested Van is the father of the baby, born on December 28.
She said: "I haven't seen the baby since he was born. But I went with Gigi when she had a sonogram and it was labelled with her name and Van's and she said, 'He looks just like his daddy.' "
Carla alleges Gigi started a relationship with Van - who is married to Michelle Morrison, with whom he has two children - over four years ago.
Discussing the apparent affair, Carla is quoted by the Daily Mirror newspaper as saying: "She was constantly travelling to London or wherever he was. She'd tell her boyfriend she was going to Ireland to hook up with 'Marina', but that was a codeword for Van.
"I've only ever spoken to Van once. He called the house where she was living and I picked it up and he said, 'Gigi, it's Van!' and I said, 'Hold on.' "Posted on 4 Jan 2010 10:30 to category : Band / Celebrity News
