(Contact Music) The former-manager of rock legends the Ramones and Iggy Pop has filed a $100 million (GBP50 million) lawsuit against an American gay magazine for publishing fake quotes portraying him as a "sexual predator".

Danny Fields filed the defamation suit against Out magazine in New York's Manhattan Supreme Court earlier this month (Sep07). The 65-year-old claims his career has been damaged beyond repair by the false allegations, which imply he bribed underage fans to have sex with him in exchange for meeting their idols.

The lifestyle magazine quotes Fields, who is openly homosexual, as saying: "I don't remember ever being inhibited by saying, 'I'm the manager of the band. If you want to meet them, come to my hotel room and sleep with me, and I'll introduce you to them in the morning.'" But Fields - who was an influential figure in New York's 1970s punk rock scene - denies ever saying this. - more on this story
