Hollywood actress Nicole Kidman has slammed reports she is dating millionaire Steve Bing, insisting she is a "single woman".

The Moulin Rouge! star has been linked to Bing - father of ELIZABETH HURLEY's son DAMIEN - for several months, as well as Libyan leader MOHAMMED GADDAFI's son AL-SAADI GADDAFI.

As a single mother to ISABELLA and CONNOR, Kidman explains, "It is very hard for a single woman in my position."

When asked about her relationship with The Polar Express producer Bing, Kidman says, "We are friends."

Of her meeting with Al-Saadi earlier this month (MAR05), Kidman adds, "That was business."
