Crying Kylie Minogue Pressed On Day That Michael Hutchence Died

On the day Kylie heard Hutchence had been found dead in a Sydney hotel room, William was gathering outfits together for a concert she was about to give at the G.A.Y. club at London’s Astoria nightspot. He says, “The whole day was awful beyond words. To even talk about it now is really hard. I’ll never forget what a total state she was in. She just couldn’t stop crying. She and Michael had been split up for a good few years – but they were still very close. When he was in London he would drop by and we would all go for a drink. He was still an important part of her life. I phoned her that morning and she answered in floods of tears. But she didn’t cancel the show, which was for charity. She was adamant that the show had to go on because she was only too well aware of how much suffering the audience would have known caused by AIDS and HIV.”

Another relationship has ended and still no ring, no big church wedding’. She cries about it, she cries a lot.
