Though we reported the arrival of Van Morrison’s baby boy a few days ago, we have since learned that the news is actually the result of a hoax — and a hacker who infiltrated the singer’s website for the second time in just three months.
The singer said the claims are “completely and utterly” untrue, and he released this statement to clear the air.
“Claims were made relating to my person life in a ‘statement’ purporting to come from me. The comments which appeared on my website did not come from me. They are… without foundation. For the avoidance of all doubt, and in the interest of clarity, I am very happily married to Michelle Morrison, with whom I have two wonderful children.”
