Former X Factor judge Dannii Minogue has split from partner Kris Smith, it has been claimed today.

According to The Sun, Aussie popstar Dannii separated from Kris two weeks ago and he has since moved out of their home down under.

The couple started dating in 2008 and have a 21-month-old son Ethan together.

Dannii started judging on The X Factor in 2007, but left in 2011 over clashing schedules with her commitments to Australia's Got Talent.

The singer recently said she would love to return to the series, while some reports have even linked the singer to a spot on Dancing On Ice next year.

Despite the reports, neither Dannii, Kris or representatives for the pair have yet to comment the speculation.

“Dannii is absolutely devastated," a source said today. "She gave up a lot to move her life back to Australia to make a go of things with Kris and the baby.

“She cares a lot about her family, and being with Kris has been something she’s been desperately trying to make work since they first hit the rocks last year.

"Kris moved out of the family home in Melbourne a few weeks ago.”
