Company director MICHAEL EDWARDS-HAMMOND boasted to his friends that he was dating Kylie Minogue's sister after meeting her when she starred in the West End musical NOTRE DAME DE PARIS.
But Dannii - currently dating French hunk JEREMY GARAMOND - says, "I did not know him when I was starring in Notre Dame De Paris. I have never gone out with him, not even on a date.
"I never even slept with him. That's completely ludicrous. For people to think I was his girlfriend was absolutely astonishing to me and I have to say a bit embarrassing."
The 32-year-old beauty says she went out with him occasionally but insists they were never alone together.
Edwards-Hammond was arrested on Monday (17MAY04) after allegedly tricking his way into the English castle by posing as DETECTIVE SUPERINTENDENT SIMON MORGAN - the man heading the hunt for the Night Stalker serial sex attacker.
A close source says, "Michael's constantly calling up the paparazzi telling them he's with a big star - even when he's not. He's always going on about Dannii and even claimed they had got engaged and Kylie was thrilled for them."23/05/2004 14:21
