Kylie Minogue, the Australian-born pop princess, known for songs, such as Can’t Get You Out Of My Head and her 80’s cover of Locomotion, is suffering from a broken heart after the breakup of long-time boyfriend Andres Velencoso, according to the Australian Associated Press.
Velencoso is a Spanish model and is known for his work in fragrance commercials, as well as advertising campaigns with Louis Vuitton. According to ContactMusic, Minogue and Velencoso have been in a relationship since 2008 when they met at a party hosted by Dita Von Teese, making this the 5th year of their relationship.
Hello Magazine reports that a friend of Minogue’s stated that the Australian pop star was left “devastated” and “heartbroken” by the break-up, and that no one else was involved. Minogue’s spokesperson stated that the recently estranged couple still remains on good termsr.
Another friend of Minogue’s tells US Weekly Magazine the reason for Minogue and Velecoso’s break up:
“It was more of a time thing — they didn’t get much of it together. There was no fallout, they’re still friends, just not lovers anymore. She’s doing alright — she throws herself into her work during times like this and she’s got so much work going on at the moment.”
Minogue also has been making news recently with her announcement to be a judge on the British version of the well-known singing reality show The Voice. Minogue’s involvement with the reality show was one of the reasons for their break up. The Sun states the following quote from an inside source:
“When Kylie signed up for The Voice, they knew they couldn’t cope with the long distance pressures the job would put on them.”
An inside source with The Sun also stated “Kylie and Andres haven’t spent much time together because she’s been holed up in a studio in LA working on her new album.”
Minogue’s past relationships include: Jason Donovan (Neighbours), Lenny Kravitz, and Olivier Martinez.[Image source: YouTube (1:12)]
