Dannii and Kris's relationship hasn't been an easy one

Dannii Minogue and partner Kris Smith are reported to have split.

It’s believed that after crisis talks, Kris has moved out of the luxury home he shared with Dannii in Melbourne.

Dannii, 40, and Kris, 33 – who started dating in 2008 – are mum and dad to son Ethan, 21 months.

Reports of a rift first surfaced last June when Kris became pals with Kerry Katona’s ex Brian McFadden.

Kris has been behaving like a big-time bachelor recently,’ a source told Now.

He and Brian get on like a house on fire.

‘They both love to flirt and they’ve been hanging out with lots of young models.’

But the relationship held strong and in our exclusive interview with Dannii in November last year, she talked about how relaxed she felt after settling down in Australia with her man.

‘It’s just nice to have one home and to be there,’ she explained. ‘It’s easier to devote time to your family when you’re in that mode.

‘For all of us.’
