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

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, “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.”
