Kylie Minogue is reportedly devastated after ending her five-year relationship with Spanish model Andres Velencoso.
The 45-year-old singer and her younger model beau decided to call time on their relationship after their hectic work schedules became unbearable.
Kylie is currently recording tracks for her upcoming album and is also a judge on the talent competition “The Voice UK”.
The singer’s rep confirmed the split today, saying the couple ended on friendly terms and that there was no third party involved.
Minogue’s work commitments have left little time for the couple to see one another the past few months.
A friend stated, “Kylie and Andres haven’t been spending much time together because she’s been holed up in the studio in LA working on her new album. He’s also been trying to carve out an acting career for himself. When she signed up for The Voice they knew they couldn’t cope with the long distance pressures the job would put on them.”
Kylie is said to be devastated over their split. Her pal adds, “This is a big blow for her”.
The split news comes just a year after Kylie gushed about her younger stud, saying, “He’s the one. Sound the alarm, four years. I think I’m pretty settled.”
Kylie’s friend Matthew Horne revealed that the couple were hoping to have children together.
He told Hello magazine, “They are very much in love. I think she wants to [have kids]. Andres is obviously the guy for her. I don’t think it’s a secret that she would like children.”
Kylie Minogue began dating Andres Velencoso after they worked together on an advertisement for her perfume line in 2008.
The singer has previously dated Jason Donovan, musician Lenny Kravitz, late singer Michael Hutchence and actor Olivier Martinez, who she dated until 2007.
