Franz Ferdinand frontman Alex Kapranos has reconciled with singer NATASHA BEDINGFIELD after he reportedly slammed the pop beauty last year (04).

The TAKE ME OUT Scots star hit the headlines in 2004, when he was said to have fumed, "She gets on my t*ts. THESE WORDS - I'm unconvinced."

However, backstage at last month's (FEB05) Brit Awards, Bedingfield confronted Kapranos and realised the argument had been a media fabrication.

Bedingfield says, "I saw Alex, who was very apologetic. Some newspaper misquoted him as saying something negative about me, so he came up to say it wasn't true and that he hoped I was OK, which was lovely of him."
