The Guardian got the scoop to end all scoops this past Friday when they somehow convinced Jean-Claude Van Damme to elaborate on his 1994 affair with Australian pop legend Kylie Minogue.

The fling occurred while they were filming the Street Fighter movie and Van Damme made it sound quite romantic. But before he got into the details, Timecop played coy: "I tell you what, you should ask her," he told the Guardian reporter. "She'll have a better memory. I'm 51 years old, do you know how much I was punched in the face on The Expendables?"

Finally he stopped being such a tease and began to open up. “No, no. No. And let's just say it happened, so what? Who wants to know?"

Only the entire world.

"OK. Yes, yes, yes. It happened," Van Damme admitted. "We had an affair."

Thankfully once Van Damme caved, he didn't hold back. “Sweet kiss, beautiful lovemaking,” the Muscles from Brussels said about the romance. He added the hook-up was all but unavoidable: “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."

The "beautiful lovemaking" took place in Thailand, of course. “I knew Thailand very well, so I showed her my Thailand,” Van Damme said. Which is not a euphemism.

Minogue hasn’t issued an official response, but she did compose the below tweet earlier today. Coincidence or synchronicity?
