JD Fortune may not really have been sacked by INXS but he will never get back in the band after last weeks outburst on Canadian television.The INXS / JD Fortune saga will continue this week following an announcement from former manager and new record company boss Chris Murphy that the band did not sack JD Fortune.
Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, Murphy says, "Not only are we shocked by the claims, even the place the supposed incident was to have taken place is a mystery to the band."
He goes on to say that the band has a new recording deal coming up with his own label Petrol Records and that Fortune was about to be called.
"I guess I have no reason to call him now," he said.
JD Fortune announced on Canadian television last week that he was fired by the band at Hong Kong airport, that he was homeless and living in his car and had a problem with cocaine.
Fortune became lead singer of INXS after winning the reality TV show Rock Star: INXS.
His Canadian TV appearance was in support of his forthcoming solo album.
Fortune’s behavior has been somewhat erratic of late.
