Kylie Minogue reveals she 'had a nervous breakdown' after split with fiancé Joshua Sasse
Singer Kylie Minogue revealed she had a "nervous breakdown" after ending her engagement to Joshua Sasse last year.
The 49-year-old pop superstar famously called time on her relationship in February 2017 amid allegations of his infidelity and she told the Sunday Times she felt "broken" after the split. During their year long romance, Kylie often spoke about how she and the British actor (29) were "deliriously happy" and her excitement at their upcoming wedding.
"I just wanted to stop, I think it's called a nervous breakdown," she said.
She took time off work and flew to Thailand to allow herself time to heal and concluded that "it wasn't the right union", which gave her comfort.
"I've never been that woman, that girl who dreams of walking down the aisle," she added.
"Of course I wonder what that would be like but, your destiny is your destiny and I can't imagine, if by some miracle I got pregnant … at this point in my life, I wonder, could I even manage that?"
In 2016, she spoke of her intentions to take his surname, saying "nobody wants to be Mr Minogue".
"I’ll definitely be taking Sasse but there will be Minogue in there somewhere. Taking a different name makes a statement," she told YOU magazine.
"Nobody wants to be Mr Minogue. It takes a very strong man to put themselves in that position and I fully appreciate that.
"The world around you sees it differently and a lot of guys can’t deal with that. When I look into Josh’s eyes, he is all I see and that makes me very happy."
