Kylie Minogue has opened up about her split from Andrés Velencoso, insisting that changes in her own lifestyle played a part in their break-up after five years.

Speaking to the Daily Mail Weekend magazine, the 45-year-old singer said: "After having the same manager, an Australian, for 25 years, I got new management in LA."

She continued: "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 was basically floundering around on my own, trying to keep my relationship going."

Minogue added: "[Andrés] 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."
