Af­ter her shock split from fi­ancé Joshua Sasse in Fe­bru­ary, we were gut­ted that Kylie Minogue was ‘un­lucky in love’.

But fast-for­ward five months and the 49-year-old is re­port­edly back in the arms of her ex-boyfriend, Olivier Martinez, 51, whom she dated for five years un­til 2007.

The pair were spot­ted canoodling at the Chateau Mar­mont restau­rant in

Los An­ge­les last week, with on­look­ers say­ing they seemed ‘very much a cou­ple’.

‘They both looked de­lighted to see each other, and hugged and kissed be­fore sit­ting down,’ said an in­sider. ‘Dur­ing din­ner, they ap­peared very touchy-feely and kissed a few times.

‘Kylie was beam­ing from ear to ear and seemed en­grossed in what Olivier was say­ing.

‘Af­ter­wards, they left arm-in-arm and ap­peared to be head­ing in the di­rec­tion of the Chateau Mar­mont Ho­tel, where Kylie had a room booked,’ added the source.

There’s no doubt about the in­ten­sity of Kylie’s feel­ings for Olivier, who stood by her and sup­ported her while she faced her shock­ing breast can­cer di­ag­no­sis in 2005.

‘Olivier was in­cred­i­ble,’ the pop princess pre­vi­ously said of her ex. ‘On par­tic­u­larly dark days, I’d be ly­ing on the bath­room floor, wail­ing, and he’d say, “OK, honey, you can cry for just five min­utes, then I’m tak­ing you on the bike for a ride around Paris.”’

She went on to say in the 2006 in­ter­view, ‘Olivier was there all the time, help­ing with prac­ti­cal stuff and be­ing pro­tec­tive. He didn’t hes­i­tate to can­cel work and put pro­jects

on hold so that he could be with me.

‘He’s the most hon­ourable man

I have ever met.’

The singer has since penned hits about their five-year ro­mance, with

2014 track Beau­ti­ful

said to be about their re­la­tion­ship.

The emo­tional song in­cludes lyrics such as, ‘It used to be you and me, love like no other… noth­ing’s changed.’

And Kylie has ad­mit­ted she still cares about Olivier, say­ing of their re­la­tion­ship, ‘There’s def­i­nitely still love and re­spect there.’

Revenge star Olivier split from his wife of two years, ac­tress Halle Berry, in 2015, with the di­vorce fi­nalised in the last six months. The two share a son, Maceo, aged three.

And the French ac­tor seemed to still hold a can­dle for his for­mer flame, hav­ing pre­vi­ously said, ‘I’m so proud of Kylie and will al­ways be by her side. I love her so much.’

Their not-so-se­cret date at Chateau Mar­mont comes a few months af­ter it was ru­moured Kylie had got back in touch with Olivier, af­ter be­ing left heart­bro­ken by her ex-fi­ancé, Joshua, 29.

‘Olivier reached out to Kylie af­ter he heard about the break-up, and the two have been in con­tact since,’ ex­plained a source.

‘Kylie’s friends are wor­ried she may be look­ing to fill the hole in her heart. They want to make sure she doesn’t end up get­ting hurt on the re­bound. But it seems that Kylie’s not lis­ten­ing,’ added the source. ‘Her friends [feel] she may be rush­ing into things.’ Could it be a case of Bet­ter The Devil You Know for Kylie?
