Huey labels the Blur frontman a "cocksucker" after their "who's the coolest?" spat in a London bar...

FUN LOVIN' CRIMINALS frontman HUEY MORGAN has branded BLUR lead singer DAMON ALBARN a "cocksucker" after the pair almost came to blows last week, NME.COM can reveal.

Huey and Damon's altercation happened when they bumped into each other at London's Kabaret Club in Soho. Speaking exclusively to NME.COM the following night, Huey accused Damon of acting like a "rock star" rather than being a real person and "hugging him like a homeboy" when they'd never been that close.

He explained: "He was out in a bar being an idiot. I liked the guy up until last night (but) he was acting like a cocky fuck, and I was like, 'Jesus Christ!' Some people like being rock stars and not taking it easy. He hugged me like I was his homeboy, and I don't hug this dude, I don't know him that well. Then I told him what I was up to and he told me it wasn't cool. I said. 'What do you mean it's not cool?? And he goes 'It's wack'. And I said 'You mean wack like your new video Damon?' And then he got all 'mer mer mer' and I said 'Damon I'm fuckin' wit you'. (But then) he got really pissed off, and started acting like a jerk, and telling me 'You don't know what's cool 'cos you don't live here', and I was like, 'Fuck off!' Fuck him, he can go suck a bolognaise!"

"I was so close to putting my foot in that kid's ass. So close. But I didn't. I was cool."

Damon Albarn was unavailable for comment as NME went to press.
