Kylie Minogue has by no means been secretive about her failed relationship with ex-fiancé Joshua Sasse. She is now opening up again about how the relationship was probably doomed from the beginning, but she deluded herself into believing they could work things out.  

In a recent interview with Vogue Australia, the 49-year-old singer said that at first, she thought that her and Joshua's romance "needed saving" but realized later that she had to call it quits with him. She claims to have suffered a "slow, steady nervous breakdown" while she was in the relationship. 

"I think we all know that things were not going great in my relationship, but, you know, when you're kind of deluded and you're thinking maybe, maybe ... maybe this needs saving. Turns out, it didn't," Daily Mail quotes Kylie as saying. 

Kylie and Joshua had gotten engaged in February 2016, but called it quits in the subsequent year, amid cheating allegations against the latter. She allegedly kicked her former lover out of their West London home after he "grew too close to" Spanish actress Marta Milans. 

While the split has been evidently devastating for Kylie, she claims it has "been good to kind of center" her in terms of making new music. "I've learnt a lot about songwriting... having two weeks in Nashville, that changed so much for me," she says.   

The brutal break-up did lead her to pursue options of raising children as a single mother. However, she soon came to the realization that she'd rather be the cool aunt to her sister Dannii Minogue's seven-year-old son Ethan and a prospective stepmother to her future beau's children.  

"And I mean, if I was to meet anyone — that sounds really gloomy — but if there's one person on the planet Earth who might like me and I might like them, the chances are pretty high that that person would have children anyway. So, I think it's more (likely) in that vein, than having children of my own," she explains her stance. For now, she is "happily single" and enjoying her life.
