Kylie Minogue opens up about nervous breakdown after split with Joshua Sasse
Kylie Minogue reveals that she felt "broken" after her split from fiancé Joshua Sasse.
Kylie Minogue and Joshua Sasse had made one of the most beautiful celebrity couples. The Brit and Aussie were so evidently in love with each other and even supported one another in their professional endeavors, having met when Kylie appeared in a guest role on Joshua's musical comedy Galavant. However, much like the fate of Galavant, their romance met with an untimely end.
And, for the first time ever, Kylie has opened up about their difficult break-up, and the heartbreak that followed. In fact, the Can't Get You Out of My Head singer found the highly publicized breakup so traumatic that she had a nervous breakdown, the 49-year-old confessed to Sunday Times.
"I just wanted to stop. I knew I needed to heal my...my physical system was compromised," she said, adding that she panicked further on realizing she may be experiencing a panic attack. "I think it's called a nervous breakdown. I just thought 'no, no, no, no.'" She then had to recuperate by taking a holiday in Thailand.
Thankfully, the Thailand trip did do the trick, partly because Kylie claims she is too practical to wallow in her misery. "I think I reacted pretty quickly. I can take a nose dive pretty fast, but I won't stay there long," she added. "I'm too practical." Kylie claims to have come out of the experience feeling "absolutely calm."
In the same interview, Kylie also speaks about learning that she will never have children. "Of course, I wonder what it would be like...to be a mother and look into your child's eyes...but your destiny is your destiny." She further added that she does feel unhappy about the news.
"It would be a lie to say there's not a bit of sadness there, but I don't get caught up in it. I can't. I mean, what can I do?" She said. Kylie's sister Dannii Minogue has also spoken about how motherhood is a sore subject for her older sister. "It's a great sadness for her, it's a great sadness for me and it's also made me really understand how blessed I was to be a mother."
However, Kylie is looking forward to being a stepmother. "… There's a high probability that if/when I meet someone they will have children anyway. So I could imagine being a stepmum."
We sure hope Kylie gets to experience motherhood – biologically or otherwise.
