Kylie Minogue has opened up about her split from Joshua Sasse for the first time, saying that it "wasn't meant to be". The Australian star chatted to The Sunday Herald Sun about the end of her engagement, telling them: "'It wasn't meant to be and so I look forward to moving on, richer for the experience. I haven't had the white picket fence and happy ever after in my life, so far, but perhaps that's just not my destiny. I know love and I love to be in love."

Kylie spoke about her split from Joshua

The news came just one year after the pair originally announced their engagement in the marriages section of the Daily Telegraph. The post read: "Mr J.S. von Sasse and Miss K.A. Minogue. The engagement is announced between Joshua, so of the late Dominic Sasse and of Mary Heale (neé Macauley) of Herefordshire and Kylie, eldest daughter of Ronald and Carol Minogue of Melbourne, Australia." According to sources, the pair separated due to Kylie's concern over Joshua's relationship with Spanish actress Marta Milans, with a source telling The Sun: "She is absolutely devastated, totally heartbroken. She really believed he was The One. But she no longer trusts him."
