LATEST: Model GENEVIEVE GOWMAN has offered to drop her financial claims against MINI-ME VERNE TROYER if the pint-sized Austin Powers actor acknowledges they were once man and wife.

Troyer insists he was never officially married to the busty blonde, but she's adamant that she was legally Mrs Troyer for one month last year (03).

The odd couple have been tied up in a legal battle for much of 2004, but now Gowman insists she'll back down with her divorce settlement plans if her ex agrees to pay her legal bills and confirm they were wed.
