THE Apprentice’s Jemelin Artigas reportedly had a fling with the music star Shaggy and then boasted about it to the other candidates.
The former beauty queen, 34, is believed to have enjoyed a night of passion with the Boombastic singer after meeting when she was working as a model and he was filming a music video.
A source told the MailOnline: “Jemelin laughed and joked about having a romantic relationship with Shaggy to her rival candidates.
“Every person she told was completely amazed and it sparked a Shaggy singalong among the contestants in their cinema room.
“It happened years ago at the height of Shaggy’s fame while he was in town filming a music video and she worked as a model. She’s not at all embarrassed about it now and can see the funny side.”
A rep for Jemelin denied they had a romantic relationship.
Jemelin, who is Venezuelan, will be battling it out against 15 other candidates to win a £250,000 business investment from Lord Sugar.
She describes herself as competitive and fearless in business, however, she can be “next-level stubborn”.
She says: “I never have problems, I only have solutions.”
Meanwhile it looks set to be steamy series as we previously revealed that Librarian Lottie Lion, 19, hooked up with digital marketing manager Lewis Ellis, 28, during a trip to Finland.

The pair, who are both single, had grown close over several weeks sharing a luxurious house in London while filming the latest series, which starts on BBC1 next week.
A source said: “It was no secret among hopefuls that Lottie and Lewis had a night of passion together while abroad on a task.
“They tried to keep it on the down-low but word soon spread.”
“It was a little awkward for the rest of the show. Unlike a holiday romance they couldn’t escape seeing each other the next day.”
The Apprentice returns to BBC One on Wednesdays at 9pm.
