Kylie’s fling with Jean-Claude

Action hero Jean-Claude Van Damme claims he had an affair with Kylie Minogue. The movie star says he romanced the singer while they filmed `Street Fighter’ together in 1994. According to Jean-Claude, the best thing about making the film – which was universally panned by critics – was his fling with Kylie. He admits, “‘Street Fighter’ was corny to me. But there were nice things. I got to see the land of Australia and had a mini-affair with Kylie Minogue. If you ever see her, say hello for me to Kylie.” The martial arts expert also insists he’s not all tough guy after all. He says, “oy last fight was more than 20 years ago. I’m not a fighter. I’m a lover. If somebody’s going to speak bad about me, I will walk away.” Don’t cross him though – he adds, “But if a guy like Steven Seagal slaps me once, I will slap him twice as hard. Life is full of violence.” [31 January 2007]
