INXS band manager has denied claims J.D. Fortune was sacked from the band.
Chris Murphy, said yesterday that the band was horrified by comments made by Fortune that he was dropped by the band at Hong Kong airport.
“Not only are we shocked by the claims, even the place the supposed incident was to have taken place is a mystery to the band,” Murphy told news.com.au.
The singer who won Rock Star told Canada’s Entertainment Tonight last week that he was now broke and living in a car after losing his job with the band he had travelled for 23 months.
“What annoys me the most after viewing Fortune’s interview is the bloody slant he makes toward the founding band members,” Murphy added.
“The band have always stated to me that Fortune’s services could potentially be contracted again when INXS next tour.
“In fact he was next on my list to call regarding a very big recording project I am putting together for INXS at present.
“I guess I have no reason to call him now.”
