Pop princess KYLIE MINOGUE says the kiss and tell stories from former lover James Gooding have left her devastated.

The pert-bottomed singer ended her three-year relationship with toyboy model James last year (02), although the couple appeared to remain friends.

However, Kylie is not so sure now. She tells Britain's NEWS OF THE WORLD tabloid, "I felt so betrayed. He really hurt me because I really 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."

The CAN'T GET YOU OUT OF MY HEAD singer was particularly upset when scruffy James branded her a "self-obsessed, virtually friendless control freak".

Kylie retorts, "I'm not an obsessive person. I work hard because I'm living my dream of being a singer. If that means I'm working, so be it, but it doesn't mean that I don't care about anything else. I can't believe what he did."
