Just over two months after making headlines when he appeared on stage with Elton John and mooned the crowd, Ian ‘Molly' Meldrum has sparked further concern at another musician’s concert.

Daily Mail has published a video and images of the 80-year-old Australian music legend allegedly exposing his privates and urinating in his seat at Rod Stewart’s concert in Melbourne on Wednesday night.

A witness told the publication they were dancing in front of the stage when they saw the former Hey Hey It’s Saturday star sitting close by with two acquaintances.

“He pulled out his penis... then began urinating,” they claimed. “There were people everywhere. It was disgusting.


The anonymous source said they told security guards about the incident but they were “more concerned about people filming Meldrum” than they were about the urine on the floor.

“We all grew up with him and it is a shame he has morphed into this,” they added.

When contacted by Yahoo Lifestyle, Molly's management declined to comment.

'We have to accept that'

Entertainment reporter Peter Ford spoke about the incident on 2GB’s Ben Fordham Live on Tuesday morning and expressed concern that Molly hasn’t been the same since he fell from a ladder in 2011.

“He has an acquired brain injury, we have to accept that,” he said, referencing the near-death experience.

“Molly’s always been given to sort of odd behaviour, but since that fall – which he almost died as a result of – his judgment is impaired. That’s a fact.”

However, Peter went on to say that it’s important that Molly’s minders step in and “control him” in situations like these.

“I do think they’ve got to look at what’s happening when he goes out on these excursions because clearly he’s not being supervised enough or he won’t take that supervision or guidance,” he continued.
