Dannii Minogue, forced by a journalist to do an HIV testNovember 4, 2009
The Australian singer was once forced to do an HIV test after a journalist threatened to publish on the first page of a newspaper the information that she has AIDS.
Kylie Minogue’s younger sister has told how she received the threat written on a note attached to a bouquet of flowers she received at home.
”We have tried to contact you to speak to you with no luck, and if you don”t speak to us, we have it on good authority that you”re HIV positive and we”re running the headline.”
Dannii went immediately to the doctor and asked him to do a test to prove that the accusation was false.
“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,”
