KYLIE MINOGUE'S partner was so desperate to convince the Antipodean pop pixie he is faithful, he offered to marry her on the spot.

Stung by reports he was having an affair with Angelina Jolie, OLIVIER MARTINEZ suggested he and Kylie wed in a Parisian registry office.

Kylie, wanting her loved ones to be present, declined, but compromised by promising to bring the wedding date forward.

A friend says, "Kylie wants all her family to be there on her wedding day, but she was stunned when Olivier said he would tie the knot right there and then.

"He wanted everyone to know just how much he adores her, and if keeping their relationship going meant marrying at once, he was more than happy to make that commitment. The compromise was that they have brought their wedding plans forward."
