Kylie Minogue is back on the singles market after splitting from her Spanish model boyfriend.
A spokesperson for the singer confirmed the news this morning and Kylie is said to be 'heartbroken'. Kylie, 45, and Andres Velencoso, 35, started dating in 2008 after meeting on the set of a perfume ad. She previously dated Olivier Martinez, who last week welcomed his first child with Halle Berry.
Friends of the couple are blaming hectic work schedules for the split, with Kylie now spending the majority of her time working on a new album in LA and filming for the new series of The Voice UK, for which she replaced Jessie J as a coach.
Back in July 2010, she told Us Weekly: 'I'm in a great place right now. I feel very comfortable. No plans, no ring, none of that. As for marriage, I'm not one of those girls who had my heart set on wearing the dress and walking down the aisle, but it will be nice, yeah!'
She had also admitted to reporters that he was 'The One', revealing that her latest five-year relationship was a personal record.
Andres is thought to be focusssing on trying to build an acting career for himself, while Kylie will have plenty of shoulders to cry on – working alongside Sir Tom Jones, Will.i.am and Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson on the new series of The Voice UK. Sending you hugs, Kylie...
