Kylie Minogue - Kylie Minogue Splits From Longterm Manager - Report

Kylie Minogue has reportedly split from her longterm manager after a partnership of more than 25 years.

The Australian superstar is said to have ended her professional relationship with Terry Blamey, the manager who helped launch her singing and acting career when she was a teenager.

Minogue, 42, reportedly made the decision as part of plans to move away from music and focus on making movies.

A source tells British newspaper the Sunday Mirror, "Kylie's decision to stop recording for the time being and part company with Terry has come as a massive shock. Ever since she broke into the charts in the '80s Terry has been the man behind the scenes. But now Kylie is saying she wants to pull back from the pressures that come with a music career.

"She says she's determined to devote more time both to herself and to her career as an actress."

The news comes just weeks after Minogue presented Blamey with a lifetime achievement prize at the recent Artist and Manager Awards in London, where she thanked him for his dedication to her career over the years.

During her presentation, the Spinning Around star said of her mentor, "We started off in 1987 when I had what resembled a poodle perm... (and) Terry sported a very fetching mullet.... 25 years later you can only imagine how much we've been through together: The highs, lows and plateaus, the good, the bad and the ugly. But throughout it all Terry's commitment, support and guidance has remained constant... Thank you so much for everything. For helping a 19-year-old girl take on the world and become a woman and an artist. Here's to the future."
