Former Silverchair frontman Daniel Johns is suing ‘The Sunday Telegraph’ for defamation over an article that appeared in its 11 August edition. The article alleged Johns frequently attended an infamous brothel called The Kastle in the Sydney suburb of Chippendale. Johns, who has commenced proceedings against the newspaper, its editor and the journalist who wrote the story in the Supreme Court of Victoria, says the article is "simply untrue" and that he had not been aware of the brothel’s existence until he saw the story.
