Film-maker Spike Lee enjoyed himself at a top London lap-dancing club earlier this week (begs28JUN04) - accompanied by a mystery woman.

The married Hollywood director, 47, spent the day promoting his forthcoming movie SHE HATE ME before visiting strip club SPEARMINT RHINO with a female companion, while his wife TONYA stayed at home in New York.

A source says, "Spike and his companion must have spent about $360 (GBP200) on dances and there were two girls who they seemed to prefer.

"The girl who was with Spike was particularly interested in a stunning mixed-race girl who looked very similar to her and when the girl was dancing she seemed riveted.

"I would have thought he'd prefer to indulge far more cultural pursuits, but you never can tell, can you?"

But the Malcolm X director's publicist comments, "Spike went to the club by himself and he left by himself."
