Access Hollywood

Michael Bolton may have sparked rumors that he is still carrying a torch for Nicollette Sheridan, by writing about their lengthy love story in his memoir, "The Soul of It All," but he's not sure there will be another chapter.

"I wouldn't bet on more chapters as much as I think that, certain people you're always gonna love. [It's] just a fact," Michael told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Wednesday's Access Hollywood Live.

"I'm not saying there is, I'm not saying there isn't," Michael added.

Asked about the former couple's connection, which spanned decades, Michael said it was something that is hard to explain in words.

"It's just something that happens with you and somebody in your life," he said.

"That relationship was on and off for 17 years. I was five of course, when it started," he joked.

During his visit to Access Hollywood Live on Wednesday, Michael, who just released a new album - "Ain't No Mountain High Enough: A Tribute To Hitsville U.S.A." -- also cleared up the rumor he once babysat a young Paula Abdul.

"Her older sister went out with my guitarist, so we would go over to the house, and then we'd all be like, 'Um, should we go out and eat or do something?' We couldn't' leave Paula alone. She was too young," Michael said (he noted Paula was likely "10ish" at the time).

He did confirm the story that Paula once accidentally stabbed herself in her leg with a pencil, while he was there.

"I still think that was just a ploy to get some ice cream," Michael said. "She said she sat on a pencil and it went into her leg. I don't remember taking her to the hospital, to the emergency room, but I do remember [getting] ice cream."
