Kylie Minogue has released a statement denying rumours that she has been seeking alternative medicine to help her beat breast cancer.

Reports earlier this week claimed that the singer has lost a lot of weight and discussed alternative treatment with an expert in London.

"Despite the wealth of rumours to the contrary, Kylie is in good spirits and is as healthy as can be expected whilst undergoing her treatment regime in Paris," the statement reads.

"She has asked her fans please not to believe stories of dramatic weight loss and desperate searches for alternative therapy.

"Kylie has made it clear to her representatives that she doesn’t want fellow sufferers to be misguided by the false stories regarding her condition and her choice of doctors."
