Dealing with the fresh wounds from her split from Kris Smith, Dannii Minogue has been further upset by new claims of a fling with X Factor creator Simon Cowell.
Dannii is reportedly devastated after it was revealed that she allegedly slept with Cowell on a number of occasions.
His new biography by Tom Bower, titled Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life of Simon Cowell, Cowell allegedly told a friend of the secret affair, 'There were a few bonks and then it petered out while I was in America.'
These new claims have Dannii's friends worried that she won't be able to cope with the increased interest in her personal life after her split with Kris.
One friend told the Mirror newspaper, 'It was all such a long time ago and to have to deal with it now in the wake of the last few weeks is just too much. She is incredibly raw and this is the last thing she wants to endure.'
They added, 'She is incredibly raw and this is the last thing she wants to endure.'
The fling allegedly took place back in 2007 before Dannii met Kris.
