Irish veteran denies he has fathered a child with Gigi Lee

Van Morrison to sue newspaper over baby reports
Van Morrison is to take court action over a newspaper report that he fathered a child with a woman called Gigi Lee.

The Mail On Sunday yesterday (January 3) alleged that 64-year-old Morrison had been in a relationship with Lee, who lives in Texas. The report came days after the singer had denounced a posting on his official website which stated that Lee had given birth to his son on December 28.

Morrison later said the site had been hacked.

Lee is registered as a co-director with Morrison in a number of his publishing and production companies, including Van Morrison Recordings (NI) Ltd, reports Belfasttelegraph.co.uk.

Morrison, who is married, has now instructed his legal team to take action against the Mail On Sunday.

"In view of an article appearing in today's (January 3) Mail On Sunday I am reluctantly compelled to make this short statement," he explained. "I have instructed my solicitors to institute immediately proceedings against the Mail On Sunday and will take all appropriate action to prevent repetition of these allegations."

The singer also reaffirmed that he isn't the father of Lee's child. "There is no truth in the suggestion that I have recently become a father," he added.
