Mystery deepens over Van Morrison's 'fourth child'

Mystery deepens over Van Morrison's 'fourth child'

There were further questions raised about Van Morrison's alleged "fourth child" this week.

The baby's mother Gigi Lee, a blonde Texan who the singer says he has never met, was said to be his tour manager and the director of 14 of his companies.

Fans were surprised when a "special announcement" appeared on the publicity-shy musician's website last week.

It read: "Gigi and Van Morrison are proud to announce the birth of their firstborn son George Ivan Morrison III. Little Van, born Dec 28, 2009 - the spitting image of his daddy."

But Van responded on New Year's Eve with a statement saying the claims were 'completely and utterly without foundation' and that he had been the victim of a hoax by a computer hacker.

The statement added: "For the avoidance of all doubt and in the interests of clarity, I am very happily married to Michelle Morrison with whom I have two wonderful children."

On Sunday night he followed this with a statement issued through his solicitor, which read: "There is no truth in the suggestion that I have recently become a father."
