TV presenter PAULA YATES has openly declared her love for INXS frontman
MICHAEL HUTCHENCE. After weeks of denials, the 36 year-old estranged wife
of LIVE AID founder BOB GELDOF finally admitted yesterday, "Michael and
I are very much in love. We are really happy together. "This is a serious
thing between us." And Hutchence, 35, said, "We're glad the whole thing
is out in the open. Hopefully we can now get on with our lives." The confessions
came in the early hours at a London, England, nightclub party to mark
the start of JANET JACKSON's British tour.

Michael Hutchence's shenanigans with Paula Yates (TV personality and Mrs.
Bob Geldof) has brought an outburst from one of Michael's old girlfriends,
Sydney actress Virginia Hey. She says that Yates has been obsessed with
him for nine years and accused her of breaking up their relationship.
She and the singer were holidaying at New York's St. Regis Hotel in 1986
when Yates arrived to do a story on him for a British magazine.
It was clear,
says Hey, that Yates was actively chasing Michael. The interview was set
for 9 am, yet Hutchence hadn't returned by 3 pm. When she rang Yates'
room, she heard the "rustling of sheets and soft sleepy mumblings". She
barked, "put Michael on". He sounded nervous and distracted and made excuses.
him to return to their room.
"He was flushed
and dishevelled, covered in lipstick and his buttons done up the wrong
way. His cowboy boots were outside their pants. The whole image was of
someone who had just made love or was about to, or someone who had just
been wrestling with a giant gorilla with lipstick on!" Although Hutchence
protested his innocence, Hey threw a few things at the wall, packed her
bags and walked out.
