Kylie Minogue says professional changes “had something to do with” her split from Andres Velencoso.

The 'I Should Be So Lucky' hitmaker broke up with the Spanish model in October after five years together, but she thinks huge shifts in her career meant they both realised she wanted “separation ... from the old ways”.

Speaking to the Daily Mail Weekend magazine, she said: “After having the same manager, an Australian, for 25 years, I got new management in LA. Americans work very differently to Brits and Australians, so it was like trying to learn a new language.

“Then my assistant, who'd been with me for 12 years, moved back to Australia. So I basically floundering around on my own, trying to keep my relationship going.

“[Andres] was very supportive throughout that, kind of acknowledging that I wanted a separation - not from him but from the old ways that I had. I'm sure that had something to do with our break-up.”

The split has given Kylie experiences she never had before - including spending New Year's Eve home alone.

She admitted: “I've never done that before. I felt, 'No, I don't want to go anywhere. I really don't want to feel like I've got to go to a party because that's what I'm supposed to do.' “ - BANG Showbiz
