Lionel The Lothario

Pop superstar Lionel Richie has confessed he regularly cheated on his first wife, indulging in steamy romps with adoring fans.

The THREE TIMES A LADY hitmaker spilled the beans on American shock jock Howard Stern's radio show this week (begs14APR03).

Fifty-three-year-old Lionel claims he often held competitions with bandmates to see who could seduce the most fans during his 80s heyday - starting when he was the teenage frontman of heartthrob group THE COMMODORES. All despite being married to childhood sweetheart BRENDA for 16 years between 1975 and 1991.

The crooner explains, "It was the greatest time of my life. I had lots of threesomes.

"The band had competitions to see who could get the most girls."

"At 19 until 35 you got to go out there and get it. You do everything."

And even though he's in his fifties, Lionel still gets the opportunity to stray - but insists he now refuses, because he's happily married to second spouse DIANE.

He adds, "Women throw themselves at me all the time when I'm on the road.

"But, after 53 years, you just say 'no thankyou'. I've learned my lesson."

Richie isn't the first celebrity to tell all on Stern's controversial show. Limp Bizkit rocker Fred Durst last month (MAR03) revealed his romance with pop princess Britney Spears to the long haired DJ.
