Kylie turns to her ex Olivier
A decade after they parted, Kylie Minogue has been spotted with hunky ex Olivier Martinez, whom she’s described as ‘incredible’ and ‘the most honourable man she’s ever met’…
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?
