PARIS, Aug 30, 2005 (United Press International via COMTEX) -- Australian singer Kylie Minogue is undergoing chemotherapy in Paris for breast cancer and will not perform at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne.
"Any suggestions Kylie is to appear in any part of the Commonwealth Games are erroneous and misleading," her rep, Michael Gudinski, told the BBC.
Minogue, 37, had a cancerous lump removed from her breast at Xavier Cabrini Hospital in Melbourne in May and been undergoing treatment at the Gustave-Roussy Institute in Paris, the BBC said.
"Once the doctors give Kylie the 'all clear,' her first priority will be to bring the Showgirl tour to Australian fans as promised," her manager Terry Blamey said. "Making up stories about her performing elsewhere shows scant regard for the feelings of those fans as much as for the truth."
