Kylie Minogue and Andres Velencoso [Rex]
Kylie Minogue has confirmed that she has split from her boyfriend of five years, Spanish model Andres Velencoso. Sad news as reports have suggested that Kylie has been left devastated after the break down of their relationship.
According to one British newspaper it is Kylie that made the difficult decision to end things with Andres as her work commitments – including The Voice which is has just signed up to judge – got in the way of their being together. It is also thought that the fact that Kylie has recently spent a lot of time in LA working on her new album was a factor in the break up.
Only last year Kylie revealed that she thought Andres, who she met on the set of a perfume advert in 2008 was ‘the one,’ she said, ‘He’s the one. Sound the alarm, four years. I think I’m pretty settled.’ Andres isn’t the first lucky man to step out on Kylie’s arm, here’s a breakdown of some of our favourite Kylie romances...
The Co-Star: Jason Donovan 1984 – 1989
Kylie and Jason worked on Neighbours together and dated for four years between 1984 and 1989 even recording the classic hit ‘Especially For You.’ By far our favourite fact about their relationship was that when they first did ‘the deed’ it was at a Travellodge. Oh the glamour.
The Bad Boy: Michael Hutchence 1989 – 1991
Michael was Kylie’s bad boy boyfriend. The pairs two year relationship was apparently marred with issues largely due to Michael’s drink and drug problems. Michael, who was found dead in a Sydney hotel room in 1997, dumped Kylie for Helena Christensen. Kylie has since spoken about how she believes he talks to her from beyond the grave.
The Prince: Prince Albert of Monaco 1993
She might be the Queen of pop but Kylie could have been an actual Princess had her brief relationship with Prince Albert of Monaco worked out. According to reports at the time the couple enjoyed lunch together at the Beach Plaza Hotel and Kylie was later overheard talking about how he had once groped her bum. That’s romance right there, everybody.
The Comedian: Pauly Shore 1997
In 1997 Kylie had a six month affair with comedian Pauly Shore – not to be mistaken for Pauly D of Jersey Shore. Pauly said of their relationship – which some described as Kylie’s worst career move ever – ‘I fell in love with her... big time. I didn't know who she was and she didn't know who I was and we just had a great time together. I just fell in love with her personality. I'm like, 'Oh my God, this girl's adorable.’
The model: Olivier Martinez 2003 – 2007
Kylie was with French model Olivier for four years. He then went on to be with Halle Berry, when the couple became engaged in 2012 Kylie showed she was no bitter ex when she tweeted, ‘ongrats to Olivier Martinez and Halle Berry!! #wedding.’ You’ve got to love Kylie haven’t you?
