Kylie Minogue and her boyfriend, Spanish model Andres Velencoso, have ended their five-year relationship.

The singer’s spokesperson has confirmed that the couple agreed to go their separate ways, but remain amicable. They were last seen out together dining in London in August.

Minogue, 45, started dating Velencoso, 35, in 2008 after they met filming an ad for her fragrance range.

While Minogue has been busy recording her 12th album in L.A. due out next year, as well as her new role as mentor on The Voice in London, Velencoso spends most of his time in Spain where he owns a cafe, while also trying out his hand at acting. It’s believed being away from each other so often led to the separation.

Last year the Aussie singer gushed about her man: “He’s the one. Sound the alarm, four years. I think I’m pretty settled.”
