Wow........ This beggars belief. Dannii Minogue will explain during the uncut version of her interview with Piers Morgan (on ITV2, 9pm tonight) that a tabloid newspaper once made her take a HIV test to prove that she wasn't infected after threatening to run a story. Dannii says:
"There’s been a lot of things in the press, the worst one is actually something shocking, and it wasn’t something that was even printed, but a situation that I found myself in. A bunch of flowers was delivered with a letter, which I have and I will always keep, from a journalist that clearly says, 'If you don’t speak to us, we have it on good authority that you’re HIV positive and we’re running the headline'. There were many phone calls and I thought, ‘There’s only one way to stop this,’ And it’s the weirdest thing, I drove down to my doctor's office, sat there, put my arm out and said, 'I need this test done immediately,’ And all I could do was have this piece of paper slapped on their desk to say, ‘No, I’m not HIV positive, there is no story.’ And it quickly and quietly went away."
Can you imagine having to prove yourself like that????
I have found myself in a legal situation this week with an internet messageboard publishing falsehoods about my website, and believe me - that was upsetting!!! I can't imagine what it must be like for your health to be questioned, and threats of it going on a front page. Awful!!!!
