ABBA star Anni-Frid Lyngstad denies affair with top UK ministerDecember 17th, 2007 - 5:04 pm ICT by admin
London, Dec 17 (ANI): ABBA star Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Britains Security Minister Admiral Sir Alan West have denied claims that they had an extramarital affair.
The denial came after it was revealed that Sir Alans marriage to wife of 34-years was in trouble and that the minister, appointed personally by British Prime Minister Gordon Brown to lead the war on terror, had been less than faithful to his wife.
Speculation was also rife that the lady in question was the dark-haired ABBA singer, who has been a close friend of Sir Alans.
However, sources close to the minister revealed that while he had indeed had an affair, the woman was not Anni-Frid.
“There is no relationship, absolutely not. I am innocent. Alan is innocent. We are friends. There is no relationship,” the Telegraph quoted her, as saying.
Sir Alan was equally firm that he had not had an affair with the Abba star.
“All I’m going to say is I’m not having an affair with her. I know her, and I’ve known her for a couple of years. I’m not trying to be difficult but I just don’t like talking about my private life,” he said.
“I have a job to do which I’m trying to do very hard for the Government, and that seems to me to be the right focus,” he added. (ANI)
