The Aussie star said she saw first-hand the amount of men that were vying for Brooke's attention when the model was filming Down Under for 1994 thriller, The Seventh Floor.

She told her campmates: "When I was doing a show called Hot Shoe Shuffle in Sydney, I got a knock on my stage door saying 'Brooke Shields is at the door'.

"She came back to find out where I got my jeans from and [asked if] would I go shopping with her, because we're the same height. So Brooke and I, we became really close when she was in Australia."

Rhonda then divulged the details of an alleged phone call she overheard between Brooke and Michael.

She recalled: "We were out one night and she got a phone call and she went 'Oh no', and her face… It was Michael Jackson. Because Michael tried to date her, and he wanted to marry her. Michael wanted an arranged marriage."

In 1993, Michael stated on The Oprah Winfrey show that he and Brooke were secretly dating.

Brooke however has always stated there was strictly "nothing romantic" between them both.
