“The Expendables” star Jean-Claude Van Damme admits that he and Kylie Minogue had a sexy affair when the two co-starred in the adaptation of the “Street Fighter” video games in a recent interview with the Guardian.
“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?” Van Damme told the Guardian.
Van Damme finally gives in and tells the Guardian, “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.”
The affair occurred in 1994 and Van Damme married actress Darcy LaPier in February 1994, according to the New York Daily News.
“I came back to my original wife,” the actor told the Chicago Sun-Times. “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.” And he still has a fondness for Thailand. “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.”
Darcy LaPier, his wife at the time, told Fox News, “”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.”
