They broke up nearly 25 years ago.
But it seems that Kylie Minogue‘s feelings for tragic former boyfriend Michael Hutchence are still as raw as ever.
The Aussie pop star broke down during a recent TV interview while discussing the late INXS singer, describing what they had together as a ‘great love.’
Overcome with emotion, the 46-year-old started crying when asked about the rocker on TV show Sixty Seconds… due to air this week in Australia.
The trailer for the episode shows the pop princess tearing up as she credits Michael – who committed suicide in 1997 – with giving her many of the ‘firsts’ of her life.
Let’s hope Jason Donovan isn’t watching, yeah, Kylie?!
She says: “I’d never met anyone like that. What did he teach me? Many things, many things.
In the promo clip, Kylie adds: “[It was a] great love and it was true heartbreak. I had so many firsts with him.”
Despite only officially dating for two years, between 1989 and 91, Kylie has previously admitted that she never fully got over him.
Their intense relationship ended when the INXS star reportedly phoned her to tell her that he was leaving her for Helena Christensen.
While we’d probably have cut him off at this point (being dumped for a supermodel is NOT the thing) Kylie remained friends with the star until the end of his life.
She recently said: “A guy with that much charisma, it doesn’t just switch off, you don’t just forget about that person.
“I don’t know what it was like for other women in his life but my love for him remains.”
We can’t help but feel *slightly* sorry for poor Jason, who was actually dating Kylie WHILE she met Michael… and was later dumped for him.
Last year he told Piers Morgan: “For a male it’s a difficult thing to deal with to be dropped by a woman, but not only a woman but someone of her status. I took it hard.
“But what does not break you makes you stronger and I had an incredible network of people. She did try to explain to me once at a party at my house in Notting Hill.”
All’s fair in love and war, eh, Kylie?!
