Kylie Minogue wants to set the record straight: She is not
back together with Olivier Martinez.
After a cozy weekend spent shopping, strolling and dining around Paris, the media went nuts writing about their reconciliation, their wedding plans and desire to start a family. Problem is, none of it is true, Minogue said Tuesday.
"I had dinner with my ex-boyfriend and next thing I know there's a debate about whether we're having a family," the singer told the Press Association, a British wire service. "We didn't even talk about that. As I've maintained, we're friends."
They certainly seemed close on Monday, when they were spotted walking Martinez's Rhodesian Ridgeback, shopping at an Yves Saint-Laurent store and chatting over drinks – coffee for him, mineral water for her – at Café de Flore on the Boulevard Saint-Germain. "They looked happy and relaxed," said a fellow customer, "and clearly had a great deal to talk about."
Minogue, 39, was back in London the next night, launching her new bed linen range, Kylie at Home. Fresh from her Paris sojourn, she looked glamorous and happy in a strapless cream feathered dress.
The couple broke up
last February after four years together. Minogue has credited the French actor with helping her through the dark days
of her breast cancer battle.
