Worldwide report that Van Morrison had fathered a child with his “American manager” have been denied by the singer. Apparently the news was posted on his website, without his knowledge. Van is actually married to Michelle Rocca, with whom he has two children.
RTE News (Ireland) reported the story tonight, with the Dylan-related ending. They announced, “The whole episode can by summed up by the words of one of HIS songs.” And they played “It’s All Over Baby, Blue.” Admittedly Van was singing it, but everyone knows Bob Dylan wrote the song. It’s one of his signature tunes!!!
