But as the pair embarked on successful solo music careers, it meant they were often apart as they traveled the world.
One heartbreaking day, Kylie made the decision to end her three-year romance with Jason, as she met and fell in love with INXS leader Michael Hutchence.
jason received a devastating phone call which he later admitted would affect his life for years to come.
He was working in New York and Kylie was in Japan when she called her and told her that it was all over between them.
Too many broken hearts left singer Jason heartbroken, which he says took “years” to get over.
Speaking to the mirror in 2016, the now 54-year-old shared, “It was an extremely painful parting of ways, and it certainly took me a long time to recover. Definitely years.”
jason admitted that the fact that michael was the coolest guy around at the time made things harder for him.
“It was bad enough that she ran off with anyone, but she just happened to run into the arms of the biggest rock god of the day, the very guy she secretly wanted to be.”
“That was a pretty heavy blow,” Jason admitted.
kylie and michael only dated for 18 months before he left with danish supermodel helena christensen.
Although she was heartbroken at the time, she admits her short-lived relationship “corrupted” her in the “most perfect way.”
Their first electric encounter was in a bar in 1989 when Michael told him, “I don’t know what we should do first, have lunch or have sex.”
As things heated up between the couple, formerly spotlessly clean Kylie revealed she had “a lot of firsts” with the rock star.
Things he admitted to doing included taking ecstasy during what he called a “wild phase” in his life.
kylie previously said: “i had my stage. when i was going out a lot, it was a big time in my life. we really got into the dance culture. but we’ve gotten so prudish. anyway, you’re just meant to of using ecstasy during a certain phase of your life.”

Although Kylie never confirmed the rumors, her friend Nick Egan claimed it happened in the first class section, and instead of going to the bathroom, Kylie was on Michael’s lap under a blanket.
on another vacation with michael, handcuffs were found in kylie’s carry-on while going through security.
He was quick to insist they were the quirky handle on one of his bags, but many weren’t convinced upon learning of Michael’s high-profile kinky antics.
The inxs star dated helena for four years after splitting up with kylie. he was tragically found dead in a hotel room at the age of 37 in 1997.
The couple remained good friends until his passing, and Kylie later described their relationship as “beautiful and amazing.”
Although Lenny Kravitz never officially became Kylie’s boyfriend, the couple is said to have been romantically involved.
Kylie and Lenny are said to have enjoyed a brief fling in the early ’90s, but both have kept quiet about what happened.
Although it’s not over ’till it’s over, singer Lenny has hinted that whatever story he has to tell about Kylie will appear in his next book.
when asked by the sun herald about his alleged affair with kylie, he said: “ha! I’ve always been very open and honest, so everything that happened in my life will be there. but it will be a while”. before the next book.”

kylie dated former model james gooding for three years, from 2000 to 2003.
but their romance was not to last long and after cheating on her with model sophie dahl, he did a revealing interview about her.
James, no longer in the spotlight, called Kylie a “virtually friendless, self-obsessed control freak.”
Revealing the real reason behind their split, Kylie responded by stating that the end of their romance “was due to him taking drugs and drinking.”
In a 2003 interview with People, she said: “I was madly in love with James from the beginning, but it all went horribly wrong.
“I couldn’t live without snorting a line of cocaine or drinking a lot.”
He admitted that he let their relationship go on too long, adding, “I should have called it quits before things got complicated.”
kylie found love again with french actor olivier martinez in 2003, a few months after her split from james.
The couple seemed perfect for each other and their romance lasted five years.
olivier was there to support kylie when she received her devastating breast cancer diagnosis at the age of 36 in 2005.
She told elle magazine at the time: “On particularly dark days, I’d be lying on the bathroom floor crying and he’d be like, ‘ok, honey, you can cry for just five minutes, so I’m taking you on my bike to walk around paris'”.
but the couple decided to go their separate ways in 2007.
There were accusations that he had cheated, but in a joint statement they both denied that was the case.
“Olivier Martinez and Kylie Minogue have officially confirmed that they are no longer a couple. They have made it clear that the decision to separate was mutual and amicable,” the statement reads.
“The false accusations of disloyalty from the media have saddened both of them. The two remain close friends.”

The couple met while filming an advert for their 2008 perfume range and things quickly turned romantic.
they continued to date for five years until 2013, but eventually “conflicting work schedules” drove them apart.
Speaking after their split, Kylie said: “I was so sad. You came out on the other side of that, being super busy and on the cusp of so many new things helps keep you going.”
Speaking about her ex, she added: “It was an amicable split. I still love Andrew. He’s the nicest guy, he’s the coolest guy.”
It looked like Kylie had finally found one when she started dating British actor Joshua Sasse in 2015.
The couple even got engaged in February 2016 with Josh referring to Kylie as his fiancee at the NME Awards.
Unfortunately, the cheating allegations surfaced again and the couple went their separate ways in 2017.
she later said she was “deceived” into thinking their relationship was going to work out.
“I think we all know things weren’t going too well in my relationship,” Kylie admitted.
“but you know when you’re a little delusional and you’re thinking maybe… maybe this needs to be saved. Turns out it doesn’t.”
then 49, kylie said her separation from joshua led her to think about having a child without a partner, but she decided she was happier being an aunt.
She told Vogue Australia at the time: “I mean, if I met someone…the chances are pretty high that that person would have kids anyway. So I think it’s more likely in that sense, to have children of mine.”
since 2018, kylie has been in a relationship with paul solomons, creative director of the british magazine gq.
The 46-year-old Welshman has apparently won Kylie over.
She confirmed their relationship on her 50th birthday by sharing a sweet snapshot of the couple together.
There were rumors that the couple were engaged and planning a secret wedding in Melbourne, Kylie’s hometown, but she denied it saying they are “happy as they are”.
talking about how things are going, kylie told the jonathan ross show. “It’s going great, it’s fabulous.
“just when you think ‘will it ever happen?’ and she came and surprised me. “
Although Kylie has now moved back to Australia and Paul remains in the UK, they insist they are still “a great couple”.
While Paul appears to be against the move at the moment, the Aussie star thinks he might change his tune later.
“Who knows?” he said. “we’re making it up [as we go]. we don’t know what the future holds.”
