Morrissey claims he was held at gunpoint by police officer in Rome - Rolling Stone
Update: Morrissey canceled seven "proposed live dates" in Italy in September, according to his nephew, photographer Sam Esty Rayner. "Obviously, with psychopaths like this on the loose, it is not safe for me to be in Italy," the singer said, per his nephew.
Morrissey claimed that a police officer in Rome threatened him with a gun in a Facebook post jointly authored by Rayner. The singer described the altercation as a "deliberate act of terror."
Rayner confirmed the validity of Morrissey's quotes to Rolling Stone.
The Rome police department did not respond to Rolling Stone's request for comment.
