Sad news for Kylie Minogue: she's called off her engagement to actor Joshua Sasse.
According to The Sun, the iconic singer was suspicious of Sasse's relationship with Spanish actress, Marta Milans.
A source close to Kylie says she 'no longer trusts him', and has asked him to move out of their London home.
In a sunrise post shared on her Instagram account this morning, Kylie told her followers: "Thank you for all your love and support throughout this recent chapter of my life. Thank you now for your love and understanding with the news that Josh and I have decided to go our separate ways. We wish only the best for each other as we venture towards new horizons #thesunalwaysrises".
The news of the break-up comes just days after a pre-recorded interview with Kylie aired on ITV's This Morning show, which showed the singer talking excitedly about their wedding plans - and admitting she certainly wouldn't be taking inspiration from the '80s nuptials of her Neighbours character, Charlene. "I don’t think I’ll be taking inspiration from Charlene’s wedding dress," she admitted during the interview. "It was very of the time and we all have a big laugh about it now".
She also recently revealed she planned to take Joshua's surname after they married, telling YOU magazine: "Kylie Sasse is a great name... Kylie Minogue has never exactly tripped off the tongue. I'll definitely be taking Sasse but there will be Minogue in there somewhere".
Kylie and Joshua announced their engagement in February 2016, following a whirlwind romance that began when they met whilst filming TV show Galavant.
Last autumn, the couple announced they were putting a temporary halt on their wedding plans until same-sex marriage was legalised in Australia, with Joshua observing at the time: "I simply can't fathom on any level, whether it's moral or religious or anything, that I have the right to get married and to marry the person that I love and that somebody else doesn't because of their sexual orientation".
