Reports that Van Morrison had become a father again at 64 resulted from a hoax apparently because the singer's website was hacked, according to Agence France-Press.

Morrison said in a statement Thursday that the post stating that he fathered a child, George Ivan Morrison III, with wife-manager Gigi Lee was "utterly without foundation." He doesn't even know a Gigi Lee.

"Claims were made relating to my personal life in a 'statement' purporting to come from me," the statement read. "Once these claims were brought to our attention, they were taken down from the site. The comments ... did not come from me."

The statement was issued on Morrison's behalf by the Dublin branch of the U.S.-based public relations firm Fleishman-Hillard Inc. Morrison's Hollywood-based representative, Phil Lobel, told The Associated Press in an e-mail Thursday that the original announcement was based on the hacked website posting and "all those with Van Morrison regret any confusion this may have caused."
