Hutchence's Mother: 'Geldof Is Satan'
The mother of late rocker MICHAEL HUTCHENCE has branded BOB GELDOF "satan" for his treatment of his former wife PAULA YATES' daughter TIGER LILY.
Patricia Glassop insists the musician-turned-campaigner has severed all ties with her family since becoming the legal guardian of the 11-year-old - who was fathered by Hutchence - and refuses to let her visit her Australian relatives.
She says, "He's certainly not a saint. I can't see that side of him at all. I think he is Satan."
"I think he is very cruel, very cruel to keep her from her family. I am not allowed to speak to her on the phone. He's even changed the phone number."
And Glisser reveals Geldof, 55, now plans to adopt the child because he is greedy - despite the former Boomtown Rats singer having an estimated personal fortune of more than $60 million (GBP30 million).
She adds, "Whoever gets the child gets the inheritance. He has control of Michael's money."
Tiger's mother, Yates, left Geldof for Hutchence in 1996 after 10 years of marriage.
Yates died of a drug overdose in 2000. Hutchence was found hanged in a Sydney, Australia hotel room in 1997.
