INXS deny firing JD Fortune

A spokesperson for INXS has denied JD Fortune's recent claim that he was fired from the band and left stranded at a Hong Kong airport. INXS' creative director and global business strategist, C.M. Murphy, said the band was "shocked" and "horrified" by JD's allegations. Murphy told the BBC:

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.


So, who do you believe? Personally, I've never trusted JD since I first saw him on Rock Star: INXS in 2005. I have to wonder if his "homeless and living in a car" story was possibly a reality show ploy then and possibly a publicity stunt now.

As for INXS...what's their next move? Another season of Rock Star: INXS? I still miss that show. Think about it, guys!
