Kylie denies alternative therapy claim

Kylie Minogue is in good spirits and "as healthy as can be expected" considering her treatment for breast cancer, a statement issued on her behalf said.

Released to dispel rumours that the Australian singer had suffered dramatic weight loss and was seeking alternative forms of therapy, it said the 37-year-old did not want reports in British media to deceive fellow sufferers.

"Kylie Minogue's management have today said that despite the wealth of rumours to the contrary, she is in good spirits and is as healthy as can be expected whilst undergoing her treatment regime in Paris," her record label EMI said.

"She has asked her fans please not to believe stories of dramatic weight loss and desperate searches for alternative therapy."

Several newspapers carried stories reporting that the singer had sought the help of Nish Joshi, a London-based doctor and health guru whose client list includes celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Ralph Fiennes, Patsy Kensit and Kate Moss.

"Kylie has made it clear to her representatives that she doesn't want fellow sufferers to be misguided by the false stories regarding her condition and her choice of doctors."

Minogue was diagnosed with breast cancer in May and underwent surgery in Australia before moving to Paris for further treatment. Her boyfriend, French actor Olivier Martinez, lives in the city.
