Kylie Minogue‘s boyfriend Paul Solomons has reportedly decided he won’t be moving to Australia with her.
The Spinning Around star, 53, is reported to be moving Down Under after more than 30 years living in the UK so she can be closer to her family.

‘Right now, Kylie has made the decision to move back to Australia and while Paul doesn’t want to relocate, they are still very much together and in love,’ a source said.
‘Of course she will be back in the UK from time to time and he will visit Melbourne. They are going to make it work.’
Daily Mail Australia has contacted a representative for Kylie for comment.
The Mirror previously reported Paul had quit his job in London last month, allowing him to spend more time with Kylie in Australia.
It now appears this means flying over to visit his girlfriend regularly, instead of making the country his second home.

The same publication reported Kylie had made the decision to move back home after spending time in Melbourne earlier this year.
‘This is something she has been thinking about for a while,’ a source close to Kylie told the newspaper, adding that her love for London ‘remains undiminished’.
‘This year, when she was in Australia for an extended period due to travel restrictions, it gave her time to think about where she wants to be based,’ the insider said.
They added that Kylie eventually decided she ‘wants to see more of her family in the times when she isn’t travelling, and so she will use Australia as her base’.

Kylie has also reportedly taken steps to formalise her move, having changed the service address for her four main businesses to an address in Hawthorn, an inner suburb of Melbourne.
Business documents have also been recently updated so her residence as director is now listed as Australia, not England.
Kylie reportedly wants to move to Melbourne to be closer to her Australian family, including her parents Carol and Ron, siblings Brendan and Dannii and nephew Ethan.
