Photo: Gary Glitter | By Jon Blistein, Rolling Stone | Gary Glitter, the disgraced glam rocker convicted of child sex abuse charges, is back in prison just over a month after he was released on probation, The New York Times reports.

The musician, real name Paul Gadd, reportedly violated the terms of his probation, though the U.K. Ministry of Justice didn’t offer any specifics. In a statement, the ministry said, “Protecting the public is our number one priority. That’s why we set tough license conditions and so when offenders breach them, we don’t hesitate to return them to custody.”

While not confirmed, Gadd’s return to prison comes several days after the British tabloid, The Sun, said it had obtained a video of Gadd at a bail hostel, using a smartphone, and appearing to ask someone about potentially accessing the dark web. “So what do I do next, then? Let’s try and find this Onion. One step at a time,” Gadd reportedly said in the clip, “Onion” being a reference to the Tor dark web network.

Gadd — whose biggest U.S. hit was the arena anthem “Rock and Roll (Part 2)” — was released from prison halfway into a 16-year sentence handed down in 2015 after he was convicted of attempted rape, four counts of indecent assault, and one of having sex with a girl under the age of 13. . . .
