Van Morrison not the daddy

The paternity of Van Morrison's baby George Ivan Morrison III with tour manager Gigi Lee has been thrown into doubt.

Van Morrison has again refuted claims he has become a dad for the third time.

The 64-year-old singer was reported last month to have fathered a baby with his tour manager Gigi Lee but is adamant the claims are false.

He said in a statement: "There is no truth in the suggestion I have recently become a father."

The birth of George Ivan Morrison III was announced on his official website, but the posting was blamed on a hacker and was not made by the 'Brown Eyed Girl' singer or Gigi.

But now a friend of 42-year-old Gigi's, Carla Higdon, has suggested Van is the father of the baby, born on December 28.

She said: "I haven't seen the baby since he was born. But I went with Gigi when she had a sonogram and it was labelled with her name and Van's and she said, 'He looks just like his daddy.' "

Carla alleges Gigi started a relationship with Van - who is married to Michelle Morrison, with whom he has two children - over four years ago.

Discussing the apparent affair, Carla is quoted by the Daily Mirror newspaper as saying: "She was constantly travelling to London or wherever he was. She'd tell her boyfriend she was going to Ireland to hook up with 'Marina', but that was a codeword for Van.

"I've only ever spoken to Van once. He called the house where she was living and I picked it up and he said, 'Gigi, it's Van!' and I said, 'Hold on.' "
