Kylie Minogue and Olivier Martinez: the look of love?
Kylie Minogue has sparked fresh rumours she's back together with old flame Olivier Martinez after the pair enjoyed a tactile lunch in the romantic city of Paris. Kylie has previously denied the pair are still romantically linked, insisting they are friends who share a 'special bond', but if yesterday's lunch – where the couple giggled away, exchanged loving looks and enjoyed affectionate hugs - was anything to go by, there could be love in the air again.
The pint-sized singer looked on top of the world as she dined with Olivier, her parents Ron and Carol, and her stylist William Baker on a break from her KylieX2008 tour.
Kylie dated Olivier for four years before they split in February 2007 following rumours he was unfaithful
The star has previously described the French actor as her 'rock', and underwent treatment for breast cancer in Paris, instead of Australia, to be with him. After the split, Kylie maintained the pair would always be close because of the hard time they shared, but the pair seem to have rekindled their connection in recent times; Olivier was even present at the opening show of her tour last month.
A friend told the Daily Mail in February that rekindling the romance was on the cards, saying: 'A mutual Parisian friend passed a message on to Kylie that Ollie was pining for her and deeply regretted the break-up.
'Two weeks later, Ollie called her late one night when he was a bit drunk. That was their first conversation in almost a year.
'Since that time, they have been regularly calling, having intense conversations and texting incessantly.
'Ollie has told her he is ready to start a family, to marry her and to settle down.'
Let's hope it's true – we don't want to see Kylie unlucky in love again.
