Hagar Book Stirs-Up Lawsuit

Red: My Uncensored Life In Rock, the auto biographical account of Sammy Hagar's life, could have used some self-imposed censorship according to a Waterloo, Iowa woman.  A suit filed against the Red Rocker under the name 'Jane Doe' to shield the identity of the woman claims the former Montrose and Van Halen member who is now with the band Chickenfoot had vowed not to reveal details about a child he allegedly fathered with the woman while he was lead singer for VH in the late 1980's.  An account in the book by Hagar says a former Playboy bunny he hooked up with in Detroit attempted to extort payments from him for a child Hagar denies having conceived with her.  The filing apparently includes a document said to be a paternity agreement the two reached in 1989. The child in question died soon after birth, according to the woman.  Hagar's written account casts doubt on whether the child ever existed and adds that if it did it 'Obviously' wasn't his baby.
