Pat Bellis

From Morrissey-solo Wiki


Known to be the Rough Trade Records press officer / photographer referred to as "Jo Novark".

Morrissey refers to her several times in Autobiography.
An example:

"The daily tabloids fabricate bare-teeth stories with utterly stupid headlines – MORRISSEY: ROYAL ROW, MORRISSEY SAYS SORRY TO THE QUEEN, MORRISSEY APOLOGIZES ... as my spirit is stoked and tended like a downstairs furnace. I smash into Pat Bellis’s office: ‘Morrissey says sorry to the Queen? When? For what? Who has the right to print such lies??!’ ‘We-ee-ll,’ says Pat, her lipstick stuck to her teeth, as Scott Piering juts in with the untrue ‘all publicity is good publicity’."
