A federal appeals court on Thursday revived a defamation lawsuit against rocker Sammy Hagar, former lead singer for Van Halen, by a one-time Playboy bunny who claimed he had fathered her son. The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said a lower court judge erred in dismissing claims by the woman after the 66 year-old Hagar accused her in his 2011 autobiography “Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock” of extortion by naming him as the father.
