Jean-Claude Van Damme’s ex-wife says she was “shocked” to recently hear he was shagging Kylie Minogue years ago. Admitting something had always seemed off between her and the budding pop star, Darcy LaPier reveals the timing of their affair adds insult to injury.
Jean-Claude Van Damme’s ex-wife says he was always “a cheater,” but she never knew he and Kylie Minogue had an affair decades ago during the filming of Street Fighter — while she was pregnant with his son!
“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,” Darcy LaPier said while speaking for FOX411’s “Pop Tarts” column.
“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 went on to imply she and Kylie Minogue had crossed paths a number of times, saying, “Kylie always seemed intimidated by me, and now I know why.” The actress and model, pictured here in 2009, continued, “I speak to [Claude] about once a week so I will say something. This is not cool.”
Pointing out what the rest of us have been pondering, she also noted the timing of the admission of the affair, asking, “How is it even relevant?”
Jean-Claude Van Damme‘s ex went on to wish him well on the opening of his latest film — with a twist!
“I plan to see The Expendables 2, it looks like an amazing movie,” LaPier said, sounding all too pleasant, current circumstances considered. “I hope it does really well because he hasn’t paid child support in seven years. He thinks because he now lives out of the U.S. he doesn’t have to pay what he owes.”
In a recent interview, the actor answered the Kylie question with shocking honesty, saying, “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.”
