Van Damme: I had affair with Kylie

Jean-Claude Van Damme has said that he had an affair with Kylie Minogue.

The actor is currently promoting his new movie ‘Expendables 2’ but enjoyed a fling with the singer who co-starred with him in ‘Street Fighter’.

He told The Guardian newspaper: "I tell you what, you should ask her. She'll have a better memory. I'm 51 years old, do you know how much I was punched in the face on ‘The Expendables’? No, no. No.

“And let's just say it happened, so what? Who wants to know? … Sometimes you let go of stuff … I don't know, maybe. Yes. OK. Yes, yes, yes. It happened. I was in Thailand, we had an affair."

He then explained that their intimate moments were “beautiful” and insisted it was difficult not to romance the star.

He continued: "Sweet kiss, beautiful lovemaking. It would be abnormal not to have had an affair, she's so beautiful and she was there in front of me every day with a beautiful smile, simpatico, so charming, she wasn't acting like a big star.

“I knew Thailand very well, so I showed her my Thailand. She's a great lady."

It is unclear whether the actor was cheating on a partner at the time.

While the movie was released in 1994, it's unclear when exactly it was shot. Jean-Claude was married to his third wife until 1992 - who he re-married in 1999 - and he tied the knot to his fourth wife in February 1994.
