Ginger Baker threatens to appear in court naked

Cream drummer says he will win upcoming court case by dropping trousers

Former Cream drummer Ginger Baker has said he is prepared to strip off in court to secure the prosecution of a woman who is alleged to have defrauded him out of £30,000.

Baker, who lives in South Africa, claims that bank clerk Lindiwe Noko conned him out of the money after he hired her to oversee his finances.

Noko argues that she was in a relationship with the 69-year-old drummer and that any money she received was given as a gift, an accusation strongly denied by Baker.

The drummer says he can prove the couple were never intimate by stripping off for the court, reports The Telegraph.

“I’ve a scar that only a woman who had a thing with me would know. It’s there and she doesn’t know it’s there,” Baker said. “I’m quite prepared to strip. It may well come down to it.”

Baker is said to have paid Noko £7 a day for her support, along with perks including a digital camera and money to have an operation.

Noko denies 27 counts of fraud.
