Pop wildchild Pink never slept with former beau TOMMY LEE - and insists their romance was only a brief fling.

According to the Just Like A Pill hitmaker, the pair hooked up for a few dates but their relationship was never as "hot and heavy" as many reports suggested.

In fact, the feisty singer was not interested in having a serious relationship with Pamela Anderson's ex-husband and never had full sex with him.

She explains, "It never really began. He was just a super-cool guy, fun to hang out with. He's got a bad rep unfortunately, but so do I. I've known him for a long time. He's just a friend.

"We were never really together. I'm a single lady this year. I've been in relationships since I was 15 and am ready to be focused and not have to worry about somebody calling me or me not calling somebody.

"I've always been really responsible believe it or not. But I don't want to be responsible this year."

Since the interview Pink has reunited with her long-term love Carey Hart.
