Unlucky-in-love singer Kylie Minogue is nursing heartache once again after splitting from model Andres Velencoso.

The Australian pop star has been dating the Spanish hunk for five years but they have now split because of her hectic work schedule, reports The Sun on Sunday newspaper.

A spokesman for the Spinning Around hitmaker has told the publication the break-up is "amicable".

Minogue has experienced a string of failed romances over the years, including relationships with tragic rocker Michael Hutchence and French actor Olivier Martinez, who recently became a first-time father. His new wife, Hollywood actress Halle Berry, gave birth to a baby boy earlier this month (Oct13).
