Country music star Kenny Rogers has spoken about a phone sex scandal that threatened to ruin his career.

He joked that every celebrity had to have one sex scandal in their life – but denied he had done anything wrong.

The 74-year-old star admitted setting up a 1-800 number for women to call so he could indulge in phone sex with them.

Three women later filed a lawsuit against the star claiming he had coaxed them into playing kinky phone sex games.

An aspiring actress Lisa Applewhite also claimed Rogers used his fame to lure her to a hotel where he made sexual advances to her.

Rogers settled the lawsuit before it ever came to court in 1990.

But now speaking about the phone sex he said:’I thought that (phone sex) was the safest sex there was, only to get hammered by it.’

‘Here I was, it’s between friends. We can’t be together, so let’s talk about it. It was great, it was exciting, it was fun.’
