Jean-Claude Van Damme recently revealed that he had had an affair with "Street Fighter" co-star Kylie Minogue about 18 years ago and the woman who was his wife at the time, Darcy LaPier, says this is news to her.
The 51-year-old Belgian action star, dubbed "The Muscles From Brussels," played Colonel William F. Guile in the 1994 film while Minogue, now 44, portrayed his assistant, Cammy. Parts of the movie were shot in Bangkok, Thailand.
"Yes. OK. Yes, yes, yes. It happened. I was in Thailand, we had an affair. Sweet kiss, beautiful lovemaking," Van Damme was quoted as saying about Minogue to the UK newspaper The Guardian in an interview aimed at promoting his newest movie, "The Expendables 2."
"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," he added. "I knew Thailand very well, so I showed her my Thailand. She's a great lady."
Van Damme, and LaPier, his fourth wife and mother of his third child, wed at a Buddhist temple in Bangkok in February 1994. She filed for divorce that November, a month before the release of "Street Fighter." LaPier also starred in the film, playing the actor's character's date.
