Kylie Minogue says record split claim false

Kylie Minogue has slammed rumours she's breaking up with her record label.

British newspaper The Sun claimed the Australian pop star and The Voice mentor was parting ways with Parlophone, who she's been signed to since 1999, saying the deal had come to a "natural end".

Now the 46-year-old has taken to Twitter to clear up the situation.

"Whoaahhh... parlophone!! According to 'sources' we r 'breaking up'! Not true. Exciting times ahead!#LOVEu4EVA (sic)," she clarified in a tweet.

Amid the rumours on Monday, Minogue's Australian record label, Mushroom/Warner Music, said the pop star was still signed to them.

"Kylie's record deal locally is with Mushroom/Warner Music. We are proud to represent her and don't plan to change that!" a spokesperson from Warner Music Australia said on Monday.


Minogue's record deal in Australia is with Warner Music Australia and separate to her deal with Parlophone in the UK.

The initial reports of a split from Parlophone were reported in Britain's The Sun newspaper, which quoted an unnamed source for the article.

The source said Minogue was disappointed with sales of her last album, Kiss Me Once, which reportedly shifted 60,000 copies in the UK.

However, the album debuted at No.1 on the Australian ARIA album charts.

"Kylie is one of the world's leading pop stars so was bitterly disappointed about the performance of her album," a source told The Sun.

"The blame is being put on Parlophone for not promoting it as well as they could have. Kylie's team provided the singer with some of the best songs of her career.

"Kylie did everything she could, even agreeing to be a judge on The Voice for a year, which is something she would have liked to avoid in an ideal world," the source said.

Minogue is currently working as a mentor on reality singing competition The Voice Australia. She is also preparing for her Kiss Me Once tour, which kicks off in England in September, moving through Europe before finishing in Switzerland in November.
