Talking about the breakup, Kylie confessed: “I was very sad.

“You come out the other side of that, being super busy and on the cusp of so many new things helps to move on.

"It was an amicable separation, I still love Andres, he’s the nicest guy, he’s the coolest guy.

“He was one of the people saying you have to do 'The Voice'. I feel like he’s with me a little bit.”
