Kylie Minogue's model lover has shrugged off reports he and the pop superstar have split, insisting the pair is "in it for the long haul".
Reports suggested Spanish hunk Andres Velencoso Segura stormed out of the couple's London home last week (ends30May10) after a row with the Aussie beauty, ending their 18-month romance.
The reports came after the pair had not been spotted in public together for several months.
But Segura has spoken out about the split rumours, revealing that the couple's time apart stems from the Spinning Around hitmaker's busy schedule.
He tells Now magazine, "We're in it for the long haul, we're doing really well. She's a 10, a great person.
"Last year it was me who didn't slow down. This year, it's her turn."
