frontman MICHAEL HUTCHENCE has finally broken his silence over allegations
he had an affair with BOB GELDOF's wife PAULA YATES. Hutchence, who has
been blamed for British TV presenter Yates's split from Geldof, fumes,
"I've been made to look a fool, like the biggest shit in the world." And
he denies reports that Yates, who hosts THE BIG BREAKFAST, shared his
bed in a London, England hotel earlier this month. "Paula had been in
my hotel room but so had Bob. I'm close friends of them both. "I've talked
to Paula and Bob since the story came out. I just hope they get back together

On the Mike/Paula/Helena thing..........
In Tuesday's Sun, the Bizarre (showbiz) column was devoted to the Brits
aftershow party and there was an article on Mike and Helena, who were
apparently all over each other, as if they were trying to prove to the
world that they are still together. A close friend was quoted as saying
that Mike had something going with Paula briefly, but it was not that
serious. Which leads me on to..........

HELENA CHRISTENSEN has ended her engagement to rocker MICHAEL HUTCHENCE
and told him, "Don't Come Back." Stunning Christensen, 25, lashed out
after reading that the INXS frontman spent three steamy nights in a hotel
with BIG BREAKFAST presenter PAULA YATES. The $7,500 a-day cover girl
smooched with new boyfriend BACKBEAT actor STEPHEN DORFF, 29, and said,
"Michael and I haven't been getting on for quite a while now. We most
definitely aren't seeing each other at the moment. I haven't talked to
him." She added,"I've heard from mutual friends that Michael is seeing
Paula Yates. All I know is that we are no longer together and I am not
bothered by that. "He can act how he wants. Stephen and I are together
and I am very happy with that arrangement."

appear on ABC Television's "In Concert" series this Friday night, (actually
early Saturday morning, 2/18!). The show airs from 1:10am - 1:40am EST.
FISH STORY (from Addicted to Noise)
really be true, or is Melody Maker pulling our, ah, leg. They reported
that INXS's Kirk Pengilly had reportedly suffered a genital injury in
a bizarre fishing accident. Piranhas, you might ask? No one knows for
sure, but the few details that we were able to glean revealed that Pengilly's
hand slipped while he was working with a sharp knife while fishing down
under. INXS's management were curiously circumspect when questioned about
his condition, allowing that he has been ill but is getting better. It's
amazing what a good plastic surgeon can do, given the right circumstance,
and a great deal of cash.
14, 1995 (from Cyber-Sleaze)
has angrily denied having an affair with British television presenter
PAULA YATES. The INXS frontman says he had been "used" as an excuse for
Yates' trial separation from BOB GELDOF. Friends of Hutchence, who is
dating Danish supermodel HELENA CHRISTENSEN say, "Michael is livid that
he's been dragged into this. He is a friend of Paula's and has been spending
time with her but he has also been spending time with a whole load of
other women including NAOMI CAMPBELL.
