Pop beauty Kylie Minogue has emerged from beau Olivier Martinez's love-nest sporting a satisfied smile on her face - after a 76-hour romantic lock-in.

The singer and her UNFAITHFUL star lover subsequently spent a further 24 hours in a plush Parisian hotel, quashing speculation the pair were close to splitting.

Gallic hunk Martinez has been linked to his Taking Lives co-star ANGELINA JOLIE, since the movie stars were snapped together at a basketball game in Montreal, Canada.

But, according to onlookers, Martinez is focusing his attention solely on Kylie.

One says, "They were obviously making up for lost time. It's bizarre why they should leave Olivier's apartment and check into a hotel.

"Perhaps they felt like a change of scenery after three days holed up inside - or maybe they'd broken the bed! Whatever, when they did emerge, they looked washed out - and very much in love."
