Dannii Minogue reveals she was asked to return to The X Factor and speaks for the first time about Simon Cowell affair!
Dannii Minogue has finally broken her silence on the topic of her and Simon Cowell’s affair.
The former X Factor judge was said to be devastated when earlier this year a biography based on the life of the music mogul was released and contained intimate details of an affair which until that point had been kept totally secret.
It was revealed that Dannii had been sleeping with the TV boss when she started on The X Factor and the sordid ins and outs of the fling emerged just as she was getting over a painful split from her baby daddy Kris Smith.
Simon Cowell tried to dodge the blame of the sleazy book, insisting that it was unauthorised but it was reported that he met with author Tom Bowers on many occasions and gave him unprecedented access to his private life.
It seems that Dannii believes the whole thing was masterminded by her former lover. In an interview with Glamour magazine, she said:
‘I haven’t read the book but I’ve been told about the excerpts that relate to me and the speculation about my private life.’
‘From what’s been reported they put hundreds of hours into making this book and Tom is a respected journalist. They looked very pleased with it all at their launch.
‘I’m sure it makes for a great read and I wish them all the best.’
Ohh we like it, classy, cold but ever so slightly bitchy with it. Take that Si Co!
Meanwhile, it was also claimed recently that Minogue had been in talks with ITV bosses about making an X Factor return this year, after it was decided that Kelly Rowland would not be back.
However insiders say she let producers down at the last minute, because she was so angry with Simon.
The brunette beauty admits that she was approached about making a comeback and continued:
‘I was offered the chance to return but I decided it wasn’t the right thing for me, as yet again it didn’t fit in with the commitments I’d already made to Australia’s Got Talent.’
The mum of one continued:
‘I am fiercely passionate about every show I commit to. I had four incredible years on The X Factor but the show has moved on, and so have I.’
We find ourselves wishing that she hadn’t…we would totally love to have her back on the X Factor panel this year wouldn’t you?
