Australian pop star KYLIE MINOGUE has insisted her split from Spanish model ANDRES VELENCOSO was sad but completely "amicable".
The couple parted ways in October (13) after five years together, and Velencoso was recently spotted with a rumored new girlfriend, TV actress Ursula Corbero.
Minogue has now opened up about her heartache, revealing the lovers did not part on bad terms and she threw herself into her work to move on from the sad split.
She says, "I was very sad. You come out the other side of that, being super busy and on the cusp of so many new things helps to move on. It was an amicable separation, I still love Andres, he's the nicest guy, he's the coolest guy."
Minogue also reveals her former boyfriend encouraged her to take a job on the U.K. and Australian versions of TV talent show The Voice, adding, "He was one of the people saying you have to do The Voice. I feel like he's with me a little bit."
