Pop superstar Kylie Minogue has hit back at her former lover James Gooding over his kiss-and-tell revelations.
Breaking her silence two weeks after Gooding spilled intimate details of their rocky relationship, Minogue said she was devastated by his public betrayal.
And the sex symbol has managed to score a few points of her own, revealing Gooding had erratic mood swings brought on by drugs. "I felt so betrayed," Minogue, 34, told the News of the World. "He really hurt me because I loved him.
"I put up with his cheating because I loved him so much.
"James had mood swings after he took drugs. I tried to help him but some days he didn't care about anything. One minute he'd be kind and gentle, the next he'd snap at anything. It was as if I was going out with a completely different person."
Gooding branded Minogue a "self-obsessed, virtually friendless control freak", and confessed to cheating on her.
"I can't believe what he did," Minogue said. "I paid for nearly everything and helped him whenever I could and then he repays me like this. It's just very sad."
But Minogue appears to found happiness with French heartthrob Olivier Martinez.
"Being with Olivier really makes me happy," she said.
"As soon as I met him there was a definite spark. I can't predict what will happen in the future, but the present is nice."
