Molly Meldrum breaks his silence after exposing his private parts at a Rod Stewart concert

Australian music legend Molly Meldrum has apologized and is embarrassed after Daily Mail Australia revealed a video of him exposing himself at a Rod Stewart concert.

The clip shows the 80-year-old TV star baring his genitals at the end of the pop singer’s set at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena on Wednesday night.

In the video, former Countdown and Hey Hey It’s Saturday star appears to be urinating on the floor while facing the stage and wearing his signature Stetson cowboy hat.

Meldrum’s assistant Alan Evers-Buckland said the music legend was ’embarrassed and, of course, sorry’ about his behavior

“I took Molly along with my mom and a friend who helps with Molly (a paramedic) to the Rod Stewart concert last week,” he said.

“We have a dedicated and wonderful team of people taking care of Molly.

“Unfortunately, you can’t control or see everything, no matter how dedicated or vigilant you are.

“Molly is embarrassed and sorry, of course. He has given so much. He needs our love and support.’

Mr Evers-Buckland said that despite being all around him, the team looking after Meldrum only learned of the incident on Tuesday morning and did not see it coming.

“It was 20 seconds in four hours, you can’t keep a close eye on him all the time,” he said.

“He has a fantastic team, how much safer can we keep him? You can only plan so many things and we didn’t see this coming.’

The alarming episode is the latest in a series of increasingly bizarre antics from Meldrum, who has been a mainstay on Australian TV for decades and friends with some of music’s biggest names.

Entertainment commentator Peter Ford expressed concern that the TV legend has not been adequately supervised since he fell off a ladder in 2011 and suffered a head injury.

“His judgment is compromised, that’s a fact. I don’t make excuses for bad behavior,” he told 2GB on Tuesday.

Radio presenter Ben Fordham sympathized with the TV star admitting that Meldrum faced “challenges”.

“Someone has to step in who is close to Molly and say, ‘Hey, Molly. We have to take care of you mate,’ he said.

A witness told Daily Mail Australia that Meldrum urinated on the floor, but no one rushed to clean it up

“Sometimes it’s hard when you’re dealing with someone as famous as Molly Meldrum, they’re used to getting their own way.

“But someone close to him should say, ‘Molly, we have to keep you home.'”

A witness, who wishes to remain anonymous, said they were in the dance area at the front of the stage when they saw Meldrum sitting with two friends.

“He pulled out his penis… and then started peeing.”

“There were people everywhere. It was disgusting.’

Meldrum management has been approached for comment.

In the video, a woman can be seen standing behind him, casually tapping her hand on the back of his chair in time with the music, seemingly unaware of what was happening in front of him.

The reveler said they alerted guards about the urine on the floor.

But the guards were “more concerned about people filming Meldrum” than about cleaning up the mess.

“It was a disgrace,” said the witness.

“We all grew up with him and it’s a shame he changed into this.

“The people who were with him … instead of telling him to put it away, they just enjoyed the show.”

In January, Meldrum caused a stir after he dropped his pants during his old friend Sir Elton’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour at Melbourne’s AAMI Park.

On his final performance, the I’m Still Standing hitmaker brought Meldrum to the stage for a rendition of The B**** Is Back.

‘He really is a national treasure,’ said Sir Elton, welcoming Meldrum to the podium.

“I want to thank him for all the love and loyalty he has shown me over the years. I love you’.

But once on the platform, Meldrum turned and flashed his derriere in front of the 30,000-strong crowd – sending Sir Elton fans online into a frenzy.

“Expect the unexpected (Molly Meldrum) at the Elton John show tonight lmfao,” one fan later wrote on Twitter.

‘I’m not quite sure why. I’m not sure Elton was thrilled. I know I wouldn’t. But Molly will always be Molly!’ said another person.

Just two days later, Meldrum apologized for the bizarre stunt, blaming a faulty wardrobe.

“At the beginning of the night my belt buckle broke and my trousers were already falling down,” Meldrum told the Herald Sun.

“And on stage, one thing led to another.”

However, old footage soon resurfaced showing Meldrum performing the same bum-barring antics for spectators at the 2022 ChillOut Festival in Daylesford, Victoria.

The clip showed Meldrum pulling down his pants and slapping his bare buttocks.

The TV personality has also recently been involved in a public feud with actor Samuel Johnson, who played Meldrum in a critically acclaimed 2016 miniseries.

The long-running rift dates back to 2017 when Meldrum crashed Johnson’s Logie speech, but picked up again after flashing during Sir Elton’s show.

Johnson had been picking up an award for his role in Molly when Meldrum – despite promising not to – took the stage and dominated his speaking time with an extended story, which the actor had intended to use to raise donations to a cancer charity. promote.

In a radio interview, Johnson responded to the mooning incident by venting their bad blood and vowing never to speak to Meldrum again.

“I’m tired of him doing this, I’m tired of it,” Johnson told 4BC’s Afternoons’ Sofie Formica in January.

“He needs to hang up his hat. Now.’

Entertainment commentator Ford recently expressed concern about Meldrum’s condition following his fall from a ladder in 2011.

“I’m not a close friend of Molly’s, but I think everyone who knows him is concerned and everyone wants Molly to be happy and safe, and everyone wants his legacy to remain intact,” he recently told

“He has played such an extraordinary role in the evolution and growth of the Australian music industry and no one wants his legacy to revolve around wild and crazy antics and questionable behaviour.”


Fight with Samuel Johnson

Actor Samuel Johnson revealed in January that he had a falling out with Meldrum in 2017 after the music icon claimed his Logie Award acceptance speech.

Johnson said he had planned to use his acceptance speech to solicit donations to a cancer charity.

However, despite requesting Meldrum not to take the stage, Johnson claims that the TV presenter ignored his wishes.

After the mooning incident in January, Johnson slammed Meldrum, saying “he needs to hang up his hat.” Now.’
