• Kristeen Young responds to Morrissey's tour cancellation TTY statement

    Posted by Kristeen Young on Facebook shortly after the TTY statement:

    Ok. Regarding the recent True-to-you statement from Morrissey: I did not "confess to a horrendous cold". On Monday, June 2nd, I had an allergy attack that was over within 16 hours. I went to a doctor (on Monday, June 2nd), an allergy specialist, who gave me drugs for allergies...and they worked. I explained this (early on Tuesday, June 3rd) and offered this doctor's phone number to Morrissey personally, via email, and the tour manager, Donnie Knutson (for proof....since they seemed to doubt me). But, they NEVER followed up with me or said doctor. Also....it is incorrect that I "decided to leave the tour completely". I was asked to leave. Was called (in the presence of my band as witnesses) by Morrissey's booking agent, Dave Tamaroff, and told that there would be a new support band in Boston. I am very sorry that Morrissey is not feeling well. But I will not tolerate these lies....particularly about my health. This is really too much and bizarre.

    Further in the comments, Kristeen also writes:

    Jerry. Believe me....I am fine. I am not whiling away my days weeping about this. But I HAVE to correct lies about my health, behaviour, etc. I DON"T WANT BACK! Quite the opposite. I WANT TO BE LEFT ALONE AND NOT LIED ABOUT. It seems like I'm not the one who can't get over it

    UPDATE 8:05PM:
    more comments by KY in the Facebook thread:

    ...EVERYTHING comes from HIM. He controls all aspects of his tour. Do you really think he would let other people talk for him?

    ...Anyway....I really don't want to talk about it. I didn't want to talk about it....and I HADN'T fucking talked about it because I am beyond over it and on to the rest of my life.....but, you know....I had to respond to the lies. Ok. Good night all.

    ...Um.....I will say again. I had moved on. I was happy to move on. It looks like someone else hadn't moved on and decided to bring it up. I have every right to address false public statements made about my health. I can actually do both at the same time! Move on AND correct false statements. IMAGINE.

    ...Also......stop trying to stifle people from expressing themselves.

    ...I've about had it with people trying to scare other people.

    ...Please don't say offensive things about morrissey either. This is not the point.

      They both have issues with the truth.

      I'm sure she is devastated at all the publicity she is getting. She always gets more publicity for being an (ungrateful) hanger on than for her 'music'.

      Hi Kristeen! I'm sure you are eagerly scanning all the sites and revelling in it all. Enjoy it while it lasts. Your fickle fans will move on in a year or so, after all, most of them we're die-hard Morrissey fans a while back, but he's not as accessible as you on social media, and your fans do tend to need that massive extra dose of codependency and pretend friendship/reinforcement you so readily give them. Suckers.

      Knowing several people with allergies, they tend to emphasise what they're allergic, too. Kristeen doesn't even mention it here.
      But Morrissey letting her go through someone else -- ouch, that part does ring true.

      Morrissey is so petty.

      All of these manipulative TTY statements. The not being published by Penguin Classics (to force their hand), the publishing catalog up for sale (to force Warner's hand), and now this (to cover his ass from fan's anger and tour insurance).

      Oh poor Julia, Mozzer is just using you to get what he wants. What an odd humasexual.

      I think he has been on edge since his singles haven't been doing well. Fake twitter was the first crack, Lincoln Nebraska was the second, and with each single flopping he truly has fallen apart.

      how many times has it been said that morrissey's finally fallen on his sword?

      he'll recuperate somewhere peaceful and beautiful, eat well, work on his novel, exercise and eventually tour again. he'll be back.

      She does have talent, I enjoyed some of the songs. I wouldn't buy them or see her again. He has helped her out more than anyone. He took a chance with her and she should be more grateful. 10 years is a long time.

      That's the same thing everyone said last year. Who the hell will insure or book him after this?

      The plot sickens...I was looking forward to seeing BOTH Moz & Kristeen in Chicago but now I will see neither. 3rd cancellation in 3 years! I'm tired of all the fragile bodies, minds & egos!

      So how can one catch anything from another person with allergies? How "ill" is Moz, really? Acute fever? Viruses? I'd rather he say he's feeling a bit depressed and the meds weren't working so the tour's off. That I could buy, but acute fever and viruses, ostensibly from allergies? Nah, ain't buying it.

      Could be aids, depression meds needed adjusting, or he's not sick at all.

      I think he intended on playing Baltimore, because they did make it there.
