UPDATE: It was only a matter of time before Morrissey would speak out about the accusations against him.
Like always, the singer has taken to his blog, True to You to deny all accusations.
In the lengthy post, he reveals he has had issues with David Tseng, the Morrissey-solo.com editor and the person the so-called hit was placed on, in the past, but nothing that would warrant him to get “hurt” or killed.
We all know that Morrissey like things his way, but we didn’t know he was willing to use bodily harm to get it, at least according to a new lawsuit. And here we thought he was a lover, not a fighter.
In a new lawsuit, the frontman’s former security guard claims that he was fired because he refused to injure a fan.
According to TMZ, who we all know are good at getting the dirt, the bodyguard, Bradley Steyn was hired after an incident during a Morrissey show last May in San Jose where admires rushed the stage, knocking down the Smiths’ singer in the process.
Steyn claims that the Moz fired him shortly after that because he refused to “hurt” a fan that runs the fansite, Morrissey-solo.com, which was started back in 1997.
Steyn says that Morrissey asked him if the fan “could get hurt” because he felt that the website “invaded his personal life.”
But that’s not where this ongoing circus ends. Steyn says that Morrissey’s tour manager even went so far as to wonder aloud if said fan “could be gotten rid of” and if they could somehow find his address to do the deed.
Funnily enough, all this drama comes a few weeks after the Moz released his new album, World Peace is None of Your Business.
Guess there is no “world” peace among these people. At all.
