News of the World reports Kylie Minogue dumped lover Olivier Martinez in a furious argument about his womanizing, a friend of the singer tells News of the World. “They’ve been arguing over her plans to start a family,” a pal explained. “Because of her breast cancer, Kylie feels the best way is through adoption, but Olivier refused. He still feels he can be a natural father to his children and refused to entertain her talk of adoption. To Kylie that was heartbreaking. She wants her man to feel the same way that she does about children. Eventually she couldn’t take it any more. She is sick of reading about his liaisons with other beautiful women. Although Olivier denies he was cheating, she was becoming paranoid and feels she has lost all trust.”
Kylie’s Busy Schedule Prompts Health Worries
A source close to Kylie Minogue’s medical team has gone public to The Sunday Mirror to voice her serious concern over the singer’s relentless schedule while doctors have advised the singer to get some rest. The source hopes it will encourage Kylie, 38, to see sense – “We all love Kylie. She is a very nice, caring person. But she seems to be ignoring medical advice time and time again. She should be nurturing herself, looking after number one. Instead she changes her plans at the last minute to fly halfway round the world. The harsh fact is she’s not out of the woods yet, and she cannot keep up this pace much longer. It’s as if because she’s famous she thinks she’s immortal. Without a doubt, stress is a contributing factor to this type of cancer.”
