Sammy Hagar getting sued for defamation by woman in Iowa, she won’t be reading new chapter in paperback release
A woman in Waterloo, Iowa, has filed a lawsuit against Sammy Hagar, claiming that his recent book "Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock" breaks a legal agreement the couple had over a baby he allegedly fathered in the late ’80s.
In the breach of contract and defamation lawsuit filed Wednesday in an Iowa county court, a woman dubbed “Jane Doe” in court documents claims that she had no advance notice of the book, that she wasn’t notified that personal information about her would be included and that by publishing it, Hagar broke a confidential agreement he made to support the woman during the pregnancy. Her name was not included in the book nor in the 1989 agreement.
In hios book Hagar claims he met a former Playboy Bunny in Detroit who later claimed she was pregnant with his child. He alleges that she used the unborn baby as leverage to extort him for child support. “Obviously, it wasn’t my baby, and [the woman and her lawyers] knew it,” Hagar wrote. “They just extorted me as long as they could.” The woman currently is a resident of Iowa, but claims she lived elsewhere during at the time.
A paternity test was planned following the birth, but the baby, identified in court documents as Dylan, died before the test could be conducted, the lawsuit claims. In ‘Red,’ Hagar wrote that he believed the woman never gave birth to the baby and that she may have had an abortion.
Hagar's memoir ‘Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock’ The best-selling autobiography will be out on paperback soon with an additional all-new chapter detailing the way friends and industry insiders received it upon its initial release.
