Van Morrison Baby Story a Hoax, Van Says

Posted: 01:12 PM ET

EDITOR'S NOTE: A story reporting the apparently mythical new Morrison child was posted on the LKL blog.  The story cited Morrison's own website, which was apparently hacked.  That story has been removed.

From BBC News

Veteran singer Van Morrison has denied reports that he had become a father again, adding they were "completely and utterly without foundation".

The Belfast-born 64-year-old said he had been the victim of an internet hacking attack that had placed "falsehoods" on his official website.

BBC News was one of several outlets to report the hoax as fact.

"The comments which appeared on my website did not come from me," he said, in a statement issued to the media.

The singer said he had asked his management team to carry out an immediate investigation, adding it was the second time his website had been hacked in the last three months.

He went on to say, "for the avoidance of all doubt and in the interests of clarity", that he was "very happily married to Michelle Morrison, with whom I have two wonderful children".

Wow. People are just sick for doing stuff like this. That's why the internet is so unreliable for information.

The Internet isn't at fault; it's the idiots on the Internet.
