Hollywood actor star Van Damme admitted that he had a torrid affair with Kylie Minogue. The two had starred together in the movie ‘Street Fighter’(1994). When Guardian’s Alex Godfrey probed about the affair, Van was defensive, “ “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?”
Finally admitting, he said, “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. 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.”
But then reports emerge that what Van Damme had an extramarital affair with Kylie Minogue. The relationship they had was in 1994 during the shooting of the movie ‘Street Fighter’. He was married to his third wife Gladys Portugues, until 1992. He then had an affair with actress Darcy LaPier, whom he married in February 1994. However, Van went back to Portugues, in 1999.
“I came back to my original wife,” the 51-year-old Van Damme said. “I came back to her after I made a few boo-boos in my life. Coming back to her was good for me, good for her and good for the children. She’s very nice, straightforward and lovely. Always nice. That means so much in life.”
Admittedly, he still loves Thailand. Van says,. “We’ve lived in Hong Kong for the last seven years. There are normal people in Asia. No f— you, showing you the finger. If you wanted to be treated like a prince or princess you go to Thailand and get a massage and a manicure, plus the food is fantastic.”
Meanwhile, Darcy LaPier, Van Damme’s ex-wife at that time is not amused. She told reporters, “I was shocked he would talk to the press about this all these years later to gain some notoriety. I didn’t know about it, I have had my feelings hurt and I feel betrayed. There is a lot of water under the bridge between us, but the fact is I was pregnant with our son at the time. He’s almost 17 now and I wouldn’t want him finding out all of this and being hurt by it too.”
Darcy LaPier added, “Kylie always seemed intimidated by me, and now I know why,” she continued. “I speak to (Claude) about once a week so I will say something. This is not cool.”
There is a reason why she would love to watch The Expendables. “I plan to see the ‘Expendables 2,’ it looks like an amazing movie. I hope it does really well because he hasn’t paid child support in seven years,” she added. “He thinks because he is now lives out of the U.S. he doesn’t have to pay what he owes.”
Kylie Minogue is currently dating a Spanish male model, Andrés Velencoso.
