Kylie Minogues painful dumping of Jason Donovan for ‘god’ Michael Hutchence

Kylie Minogue on relationship with Michael Hutchence in 1995

Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan became the nation’s sweethearts after their on-screen romance in Neighbours transcended into real life.

The Australian stars were in a relationship for three years from 1986, during which they released their number one single Especially for You and wed on-screen as Scott and Charlene.

However, their fairytale romance would come crashing down when Kylie, now 55, met and fell for INXS frontman Michael Hutchence.

The Spinning Around singer met the heartthrob after one of his gigs in 1989 when she was invited to an afterparty,

Speaking in 2014, Kylie said that the chemistry between them was palpable after he approached her saying: “I don’t know what we should do first, have lunch or have sex.”

In a matter of months, Kylie dumped Jason over the phone while he was in New York and she was in Japan.

Discussing the brutal call, the Two Many Broken Hearts singer told the Mirror in 2016: “It was an extremely painful parting of the ways and, without a doubt, I took a long time to recover from it. Years, definitely.

“It was bad enough that she’d run off with anybody but she happened to run into the arms of the greatest rock god of the period, the very guy who I secretly wanted to be. That was a pretty big punch to take.”

The 55-year-old said seeing Kylie holding hands with Michael at the premiere of her film, The Delinquents, “rubbed his nose” in her new relationship.
