Helena Christensen recalls her relationship with INXS singer Michael Hutchence: ‘Something drastic happened’

For the first time in two decades, Helena Christensen is coming forward about her relationship with Michael Hutchence for a new documentary.

The frontman of the Australian group INXS was found dead in 1997 in his hotel room in the Ritz Carlton in Double Day, a suburb of Sydney, at age 37. The cause was suicide by hanging.

The BBC Two documentary “Mystify: Michael Hutchence,” which premiered last week at the Tribeca Film Festival, is a portrayal of the late singer, with interviews with surviving members of the band, Hutchence’s siblings, his stepmother, as well as friends Kylie Minogue and Bono, among others.

Christensen, who dated Hutchence for four years, participated in the film and described him as her “perfect match” and their connection as “joyful, sweet, deep and emotional,” as reported by Marie Claire.

“[It was] total mental and physical chemistry,” the Danish supermodel recalled.

According to the magazine, the now 50-year-old first started dating Hutchence following his split from Minogue. But during their courtship in 1992, Hutchence suffered severe injuries after being assaulted by a taxi driver, causing his head to hit the curb.
