Two British newspapers have published information they say proves that singer Van Morrison fathered a child out of wedlock with one of his tour promoters.
Morrison flatly denied knowing the Texas mother, GiGi Lee, when his Web site published an announcement on Dec. 29, 2009, of the birth of “little Van.”
The 65-year-old singer instructed his Irish publicist to say he didn’t even know the purported mother, identified incorrectly as “his wife GiGi.” Then he won a court injunction barring two British newspapers that had identified her from publishing any of their evidence.
That injunction was overturned last week. The two Sunday newspapers, the Mail on Sunday and News of the World, published front-page exposes detailing Morrison’s connections to Lee and the baby boy.
