Morrissey Calls Bodyguard’s Claims He Ordered a Hit on Fan Site Owner a ‘Vexatious Lie’

View Comments

Earlier today, reports from TMZ came in that Morrissey embattled in a lawsuit with his former bodyguard after he was allegedly asked to physically assault the owner of a popular fan site dedicated to the former Smiths frontman, and now the singer is responding.

Consequence of Sound reports that Morrissey, in a statement, claims he doesn’t even know the guy who’s suing him, and considers the allegations a “vexatious lie.”

In the statement, the singer notes that Bradley Steyn, who apparently brought a lawsuit against Morrissey, has indeed worked for him in the past as a bodyguard — though “he has ‘walked off’ three Morrissey tours” — but had not been head of security on any of his tours.

Steyn had reportedly claimed that Morrissey had hired him as a bodyguard and had worked with him to see if there was any way David Tseng, who runs the website Morrissey-Solo.com, “could get hurt.”

Morrissey instead claims the stories are false and that he did not try to order some sort of hit on Tseng — though he admitted it’s common knowledge he doesn’t like the website, calling it the “SoLow site.”
