Dannii Minogue has spoken up about the Simon Cowell sex scandal for the first time since Tom Bower’s book, Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life of Simon Cowell emerged, claiming that it is nothing more than ''a good read.’’
The 40-year-old Australian singer and former X Factor judge found herself at the centre on a media storm earlier this year after it emerged that she had an affair with the music mogul but Dannii hasn’t even read a page of the book in question.
She said: ''I haven’t read the book but I’ve been told about the excerpts that relate to me and the speculation about my private life.’’
''From what’s been reported they put hundreds of hours into making this book and Tom is a respected journalist. They looked very pleased with it all at their launch,’’ she told Glamour magazine.
''I’m sure it makes for a great read and I wish them all the best,’’ she added.

The mother-of-one also turned down the chance to work with Cowell again on his hit UK talent show, The X Factor, but insists her declination was purely down to business and not personal feelings.
She said: "I was offered the chance to return, but I decided it wasn't the right thing for me, as yet again it didn't fit in with the commitments I'd already made to Australia's Got Talent."
''I am fiercely passionate about every show I commit to. I had four incredible years on The X Factor, but the show has moved on, and so have I.''
Dannii continued: "It will always have a really special place in my heart, and I’m still in touch with all of the contestants. I don't want people to think I just left the show and cut myself off from it, because I haven't."
Dannii was reportedly taking a stance at Simon’s fierce rival show Strictly Come Dancing, but she has not yet committed herself to any new projects in Britain.
The full interview is in September’s Glamour magazine.
