Mike Skinner Reveals That Rachel Stevens Was Not His 'Drug-Taking Lover'
After years of speculation, Mike Skinner has revealed that the crack-smoking pop singer from one of his songs was not actually Rachel Stevens.
Mike Skinner, the British rapper and member of UK hip-hop band The Streets, has finally revealed that the drug-taking pop star he once dated was not the speculated singer Rachel Stevens. The squeaky-clean S Club 7 singer has had a somewhat tarnished name since 2006, when Skinner sang about a crack cocaine-smoking singer - originally thought to be Stevens.

The Streets released the single 'When You Weren't Famous' in 2006, explaining Skinner's relationship with an unnamed celebrity, which he went on to deny was Rachel Stevens. While other celebrities have been suggested, Skinner had finally tried to put to bed rumours of the Steven's involvement.
'The Observer' magazine has published an excerpt from Skinner's upcoming memoirs, in which he explains that: "I would like to take this opportunity to discuss the identity of the mystery crack-taking pop star who makes a cameo appearance in 'When You Wasn't Famous'. Now that a few years have passed, I feel a point has been reached where there would be no indiscretion involved in revealing that it was not Rachel Stevens."
