Morrison staying silent on Gigi link claims

SINGER Van Morrison will not be commenting on his relationship with former tour manager Gigi Lee, writes Ken Sweeney.

He issued the statement yesterday after weekend reports linking him again to Ms Lee.

The statement read: "Mr Morrison regards any intrusion into his personal and private life as an unjustified invasion of privacy and welcomes recent undertakings made in court by sections of the print media to protect this position. He will make no further comment."

Reports claimed he spent time with the 43-year-old at a house in Newtownards, Co Down. It was announced he had a baby with Ms Lee on December 28, 2009.

Belfast High Court lifted an injunction last week preventing print media from publishing a story linking him to Ms Lee.
