Kylie Minogue is again nursing a broken heart after splitting from her boyfriend Andres Velencoso.

The Australian pop star had been dating the Spanish model for five years but they have now split because of her hectic work schedule, reports British newspaper The Sun.

A spokesman for the singer told the publication the break-up was "amicable".

Minogue has experienced a string of failed romances over the years, including relationships with the late Australian rocker Michael Hutchence and French actor Olivier Martinez, who recently became a first-time father.


Martinez is married to Hollywood actress Halle Berry, who gave birth to a baby boy in Los Angeles last week.

It was announced last month that Minogue will join the British version of The Voice as one of the coaches in the new series of the TV talent show.

The pop princess will join returning stars and Sir Tom Jones in the third series with a fourth coach yet to be announced.

"I'm very excited to become a coach on The Voice," she said at the time of the announcement.

"I love the concept of the show and have been an avid viewer of both series. The search for new talent is such an important aspect of the music industry and The Voice gives us all a part to play in that," Minogue said.
