Did Rupert Everett have an affair with Paula Yates?

RUPERT Everett says he doesn't feel guilty for his six-year affair with Paula Yates behind Sir Bob Geldof's back.

The 61-year-old has spoken candidly about his relationship with the late TV presenter, who died of a heroin overdose in 2000.

Did Rupert Everett have an affair with Paula Yates?

In an interview on Piers Morgan's Life Stories, Rupert talked about his affair with the late Paula Yates.

Rupert told Piers: "We were very, very close, I must say, for a long time, and she's someone that I adored and still do.

"I think I was in love with her. I adored her."

Writing for the Daily Mail in 2006, under My Life With The Divas, Rupert said about his romance with Paua: "I am mystified by my heterosexual affairs, but then I am mystified by most of my relationships.'  

'That side of our relationship was tenuous to say the least, and our lives went in different directions."

 He added: "She had a fragility that was erotic to men. She could break if you squeezed her too hard. 

"She had a tiny waist that you could put your hands around and your fingers would nearly touch.

"This was her most extraordinary feature, because it gave the man she let hold her a sense of protective power; even if you were gay, you could not help but feel turned on."

What did Bob Geldof say about the alleged affair?

Paula was married to Bob Geldof at the time of the affair.

When asked by Piers how he "squared off Bob in all this", Rupert said he "just ignored him".

Quizzed on whether he felt guilty about the affair, Rupert said "no", adding: "I don't know, I think it would be for her to feel guilty, not me."

The Shakespeare in Love actor – who identifies as a homosexual – was romantically involved with Paula after meeting in 1982.

Bob has not spoken about the affair.
