07 Feb 2021: Kylie Minogue, Paul Solomons engaged, says Billie Piper; couple denies
Popstar-turned-actress Billie Piper is probably scratching her head for letting out one very privy development in the life of her friend, British GQ and GQ Style Magazine creative director Paul Solomons.
In an interview with ELLE, Piper was recalling her past struggles with an eating disorder and rash partying habits, when she thanked her friend Solomons, whom she called star Kylie Minogue's "fiance."
Backdrop: Piper had collapsed in 2000, Solomons took her to hospital
Piper narrated that in 2000, she collapsed at Covent Garden Club "foaming at the mouth," after spending "days of Diet Cokes and Marlboro Lights."
That's when Solomons took her to a hospital.
"I'd find out his name is Paul, like my dad. He's Welsh, works at GQ, and will, in time, become a dear friend, a blinding success, and Kylie Minogue's fiance," she commented.
Privacy: The couple, dating for three years, maintains secrecy
Although she said, "Kylie knows," she blurted out a secret that the Fever singer and her boyfriend of three years had kept under the wraps until now.
The couple started dating in 2018 but has never gone public about taking their relationship to the next level.
In interviews, however, Kylie has praised Solomons openly.
"He is so nice," she had said to ITV's Lorraine.
Interview: 'We've been through enough, just met at the right time'
"He is such a good support. We have a laugh. We have both been through enough in our lives and just met at the right time, so it's lovely," the 52-year-old Australian had added.
Despite the development, the couple hasn't confirmed the development.
Thankfully, Solomons's stepmother Gloria confirmed the news partially.
Rumors about their Melbourne wedding plans are also scorching headlines.

MailOnline had to brief Gloria about Billie's slip to reach for her comments on the claim.
As excited as any mother would be, she said, "She's (Kylie) very nice I'm thrilled they're engaged. It's very exciting. But, I'm sorry, I cannot tell you any more because I've been told not to."
But don't jump in joy yet as it may be a rumor, again.
Latest development: Kylie's reps refute rumors, Solomons cheekily denies through Instagram post
Representatives of the disco sensation were quick to clarify that the lovebirds aren't yet engaged.
A spokesperson for Kylie commented, "It's not true. They are happy as they are."
Solomons also took to Instagram to post a story about Fleetwood Mac album Rumours with the caption: "Today's classic soundtrack."
Notably, Kylie has had several relationships in the past but has never tied the knot.
