Morrissey’s feud with the NME has reached new heights after the singer had the magazine’s Editor Conor McNicholas ejected from an L.A. hotel.

Morrissey and McNicholas were due to stay in the same hotel last week, independently of one another, when Morrissey learned of the double booking.

Merck Mercuriadis, Morrissey's spokesperson, says, "I have a very good relationship with the hotel, and when I explained the situation they agreed it would not be appropriate for Conor to stay."

However, the request seemingly backfired on the former Smiths man after McNicholas was moved to a better suite.

The NME says, "Thanks to Morrissey's people, Conor got upgraded to a penthouse in a sister hotel."

Morrissey is currently taking legal action against the NME over an article published in December of last year.
