Sammy Hagar Sued
A story in his autobiography has upset a former PlaymateWCFCourier.com reports that an unnamed woman, name Jane Doe in court papers, has filed a lawsuit against the former Montrose singer due to a story in his recent autobiography.
The woman apparently alleges that Hagar broke a secret agreement and distorted the facts when he wrote about a child he allegedly conceived with her in the late 1980s while he was the lead singer for Van Halen.
In Red: My Uncensored Life In Rock, Hagar writes about a former Playboy bunny he met in Detroit. The book alleges she later extorted the musician, claiming he was the father of her child, in order to receive support money during the pregnancy. He denied paternity in the book, saying "Obviously, it wasn't my baby, and they knew it. They just extorted me as long as they could."
In the lawsuit, filed in Black Hawk County District Court, "Doe" asserts Hagar improperly portrays her in the book as a schemer who seduced him.
David L. Brown, a Des Moines attorney representing the woman, said his client had no advance notice the book was coming out and wasn't told that information about her would be included.
