Kylie Minogue - Retires
Last month Kylie Minogue was enjoying secret meetings with her former lover Olivier Martinez.
Now the diminutive singer is poised to hang up her hotpants and step down as the Princess of Pop.
The 39-year-old Aussie chanteuse has been telling friends she wants to "focus on what is truly important".
She is currently completing a new album and has just finished shooting scenes for her role as Doctor Who's sidekick in the BBC show's Christmas special.
She is also finalising plans for her own soft furnishing line, due out next February.
After this, however, Kylie insists her diary will be dramatically scaled down.
"She wants to concentrate on seeing if she and Olivier can work things out, focus on herself - and even start a family," says a close friend.
"After the album, there'll possibly be a tour and the final additions she wants to make to Brand Kylie, that's really it."
Kylie was treated for breast cancer two years ago and friends say she has since been torn between proving to herself and her fans that she can keep going - and her own desire to slow down and concentrate on Olivier.
