Van Morrison Reportedly Facing Paternity Test


Van Morrison is facing a possible paternity test. Samantha Branch, a 42-year-old U.K. woman, is reportedly demanding a test to prove whether the singer is her father.

According to U.K. newspaper the Daily Mail, Branch's mother, Dee, was Morrison's road manager and allegedly lived with the singer in the mid-1960s. She died in 1967, four months after Samantha was born. No father was named on the birth certificate.

Late last year, there were reports that Van Morrison was the father of a new baby. However, Morrison denied that this was true, saying that the rumor was based on a hacking attack on his website.
