Louis Walsh And The Spectre Of Gay Sex At A Westlife Concert

by | 24th, June 2011

LOUIS Walsh is making the kind of front-page news headlines even the cynical PR manipulator at the X Factor could surely do without. Yesterday, the Sun yelled:

“Louis Walsh probed over ‘sex attack on man in loo’”

Looking beyond the tastefulness of a pun made at the expense of alleged sexual assault victim, we were confronted by the shock of Walsh being the subject of a story on his private life. Up until now, Walsh was the man who needed no super-injunction. (Today, the Daily Mail leads with LAY OFF LOUIS ; the Mirror has a sad looking Walsh saying I’M DEVASTATED “).  The media has left him well alone. The man who looks like what would happen if Frank Sidebottom was kidnapped by head hunters and his shrunken noggin stuck atop a spring and placed on the parcel shelf of a family hatchback as it motored down a cobbled road only existed on the telly.

Now he exists in print. The Sun went on:

X FACTOR judge Louis Walsh is being probed by police over claims he indecently assaulted a young dad in a nightclub toilet. A 24-year-old single man told cops the 58-year-old TV favourite molested him after they met in a bar following a Westlife concert in Dublin.

Single dad? Westlife concert?? Toilets..???

The man told police Louis groped his private parts after they got chatting.

But last night furious Louis said: “The allegations made against me are wholly false and with no foundation… I will happily cooperate fully with the police and am 100 per cent confident that after a full investigation I will be fully exonerated.”

Walsh denies any wrongdoing.
