Sir Bob Geldof is being sued for £300,000 by a motorcyclist who was badly injured after being hit by his car.
Andrew Quinn, 42, shattered his right leg in two places and splintered his knee joint when his motorcycle collided with the singer's vehicle.
Mr Quinn has been told he would suffer early arthritis in his leg and that it would never heal properly.
Sir Bob, 58, told the Daily Mail on Wednesday: "This is the first I've heard about it. I thought the matter had been resolved by the insurance firm but thank you for letting me know."
