Rep confirms Cowell chemistry with Minogue
A spokesperson for Simon Cowell has seemingly confirmed rumours the music mogul enjoyed a fling with pop star Dannii Minogue, insisting there was "natural chemistry between them".
Cowell hit the headlines on Sunday after a tabloid printed an excerpt from an upcoming biography detailing his alleged romance with the Australian singer, his co-star on The X Factor.
In journalist Tom Bower's new tome Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life Of Simon Cowell, the TV star is said to have felt "genuine love" for Minogue.
He is also quoted as saying, "I had a crush on her. It was Dannii's hair, the sexy clothes and the t**s. She was foxy. She was a real man's girl. Very feminine."
Now Cowell's representative Max Clifford has apparently verified the allegations, telling Daily Express, "Simon was on his own at the time and she was on her own too.
"There was a natural chemistry between them. It's not something he wanted to come out now but it has - there is nothing unusual about it at all."
Cowell, who was interviewed for Bower's book, has yet to deny the reports but made a brief comment about the explosive book in a post on his Twitter.com page on Saturday.
He tweeted, "Just seen the TV ad for the unauthorised book on me. Yikes!"
