Kylie Minogue may have dumped Olivier Martinez, but she is still in love with his dog. The 'Spinning Around' singer, who ended her four-year relationship with the 41-year-old French actor earlier this month, can't give up her ex-lover's pet pooch Sheba. During a recent trip to Paris for a cancer check-up at the Institute Gustave Roussy Kylie stayed at Olivier's apartment and took Sheba out for a walk. Scissor Sisters singer Jake Shears, who is good friends with Kylie, told Britain's Grazia magazine: "Kylie loves that dog. I'm sure she'll still see her whenever she likes." The diminutive pop star previously revealed that Sheba took a while to warm to her when she started dating Olivier.
Kylie, 38, said: "At first, Sheba was a little resistant of the idea of there being another female in Olivier's life. But it was a territorial thing. She was very important during my treatment. There were many long hugs on the sofa." Since the split, Kylie has rubbished rumours Olivier - who has been romantically linked to Michelle Rodriguez and Israeli model Sarai Givati - cheated on her during their relationship. She said: "None of the rumours about Olivier cheating are true. I don't believe any of it. "Olivier and I still care a lot about each other and there's still a lot of love there between us. I still speak to Olivier and you never know what will happen in the future."
