Jean-Claude Van Damme hit headlines on Tuesday, after confirming he had an extramarital affair with Kylie Minogue on the set of 1994's "Street Fighter."
"Let's just say it happened, so what? Who wants to know?... Sometimes you let go of stuff," he told The Guardian while promoting the upcoming sequel to the Sylvester Stallone-created "The Expendables" action film. "I don't know, maybe. Yes. OK. Yes, yes, yes. It happened. I was in Thailand, we had an affair... Sweet kiss, beautiful lovemaking. It would be abnormal not to have had an affair, she's so beautiful."
Just one problem: Van Damme was married to his fourth wife at the time, actress/model (now a professional barrel racer) Darcy LaPier.
And the confession was news to her.
"I was shocked he would talk to the press about this all these years later to gain some notoriety. I didn't know about it, I have had my feelings hurt and I feel betrayed," LaPier exclusively told FOX411's Pop Tarts column. "There is a lot of water under the bridge between us, but the fact is I was pregnant with our son at the time. He's almost 17 now and I wouldn't want him finding out all of this and being hurt by it too."
LaPier said the world-renowned action star had always been "a cheater," and at the time, Minogue was trying to transition from music and into movies. The two ladies apparently had even met on occasion.
"Kylie always seemed intimidated by me, and now I know why," she continued. "I speak to (Claude) about once a week so I will say something. This is not cool."
LaPier was also perplexed as to why he would bother spilling the beans almost two decades later.
"How is it even relevant?" she pondered.
Yet this infidelity act isn't the only gripe LaPier has with her former husband.
"I plan to see the 'Expendables 2,' it looks like an amazing movie. I hope it does really well because he hasn't paid child support in seven years," she added. "He thinks because he is now lives out of the U.S. he doesn't have to pay what he owes."
Reps for Van Damme and Minogue did not respond to a request for comment.
