Inside Kylie Minogue and Paul Solomons' Relationship in Detail — She Denied Being Engaged
Kylie Minogue and Paul Solomons' relationship started out beautifully, and now even years after, the couple remains one of Hollywood's favorites. Here's a look into their love story.
Australian singer Kylie Minogue and GQ creative director Paul Solomons have enjoyed a loving relationship that has warmed the hearts of many for over three years.
Recently, the couple stirred up engagement rumors after another star accidentally hinted that Solomons might have popped the question to Minogue.
Solomons and Minogue first met on a photoshoot in the early 2000s. But it was not until 14 years later that they would cross paths again.
In February 2018, Solomons and Minogue reconnected through mutual friends and instantly hit things off. But the duo agreed to keep their romance secret for a while.
By April, there were speculations that Solomons and Minogue had gotten very close. A few months after their first meeting, the duo made their first public appearance together.
In June 2018, Minogue was spotted laughing and joking with Solomons while leaving Victoria Park in East London with singer Florence Welch.
The following month, Minogue confirmed her romance with Solomons by sharing a social media post featuring a picture of herself and Solomons on a rooftop.
The post was followed by several congratulatory messages from Minogue's fans, who were more than excited that the singer found love again.
A few months after going public, Minogue admitted that the romance with Solomons caught her unawares. She, however, described their relationship as fabulous.
In February 2016, Sasse and Minogue announced their engagement but barely a year later, their relationship came to an end.
Minogue also once revealed that her love story with Solomons does not compare to her past relationships. She added that things between them were lovely, and she was appreciative of him being in her life.
During a 2019 interview, Minogue opened up about finding love at 50 and noted that having someone to share her life with helped navigate the previous year's challenges.
For Minogue, having someone to share her highs and lows with is a precious gift that Solomons has given her since their relationship started.
Last September, the singer credited Solomons for helping her get through a nervous breakdown that forced her to cancel a show.
Minogue noted that even though Solomons was not actively involved with her tours, he was always willing to show up to take care of her when needed.
THEIR ENGAGEMENT RUMORS
During a February interview, 38-year-old actor Billie Piper described Solomons as Minogue's fiancé, leaving many to conclude the lovebirds had gotten engaged.
Solomons' stepmother Gloria also reportedly confirmed the news by saying she was thrilled and excited about her son's engagement with Minogue.
When contacted for confirmation, the singer's team, however, denied the engagement. A rep revealed the rumors were not true, but the pair remain happy together.
MINOGUE'S PAST RELATIONSHIPS
Minogue might currently be enjoying a blissful relationship with Solomons, but the singer has had her fair share of ill-fated love stories. Notably, she has been linked to several big names in the entertainment industry.
After meeting during a campaign shoot for her perfume range in 2008, Minogue started dating Spanish model Andres Velencoso. They remained together for four years before calling it quits.
Minogue was also once linked to Jason Donavon, her co-star in the 1986 Australian soap opera "Neighbours." The pair also worked together on the song "Especially For You," which went to number one in the UK.
Between 1989 and 1991, Minogue dated INXS frontman, Michael Hutchence. The pair remained close until his tragic death in 1997.
For five years, Minogue and popular French actor Oliver Martinez found themselves in a steamy romance. The pair, however, called it quits in 2007 and have reportedly remained friends ever since.
The pop star was also once in a three-year relationship with James Gooding, who would later describe Minogue as a "self-obsessed, virtually friendless, control freak."
In 2015, Minogue met actor Joshua Sasse on the set of the television show "Galavant." The pair soon forged a friendship, and it was not long before they started dating.
In February 2016, Sasse and Minogue announced their engagement but barely a year later, their relationship came to an end, leaving fans shocked.
Minogue later admitted suffering a nervous breakdown after her split from Sasse. Now, with the beautiful love she shares with Solomons, the singer is living her happily-ever-after fairytale.
