Pop star Sinitta has been forced to deny speculation she is gay after a mix-up on Twitter.com saw her tell fans she is "coming out".
The singer, who has dated music mogul Simon Cowell and Brad Pitt, sent her followers into a frenzy when she posted a message on the microblogging site which read, "Coming out now."
But Sinitta has laughed off subsequent rumours about her sexuality, insisting the post was actually meant for her driver telling him she was ready to leave the house.
In a later post on Twitter.com, she writes, "I love how... you guys thought I meant 'coming out'!!! It was a Tweet meant for my chauffeur, I Tweeted instead of text... So, though I'm sure I'd be happy if I was gay, I'm not and I'm happy anyway, so its all good! But I can't believe how quick you jumped on that!"
