LATEST: French actor Olivier Martinez was comforted by Penelope Cruz in Los Angeles on Saturday (03FEB07), just 12 hours after splitting from pop star Kylie Minogue. The Taking Lives star was pictured embracing the Oscar nominee at LA's Chateau Marmont Hotel - the place where he met and fell for the SPINNING AROUND singer four years ago (03). An insider tells British newspaper the Daily Mirror, "Does Olivier really have to rub Kylie's nose in it? He is being so brazen about it all. This will devastate her. Kylie is a very sensitive woman who loved him with all her heart but he looks like he doesn't have a care in the world." The pair issued a statement on Friday (02FEB07) saying, "Olivier Martinez and Kylie Minogue have officially confirmed that they are no longer a couple. "They have made it clear that the decision to go their separate ways was mutual and amicable. The media's false accusations of disloyalty have saddened them both. The two remain very close friends." Martinez had sparked rumours of a split with the SPINNING AROUND star in December (06) after he was spotted with Israeli model SARAI GIVATI and Lost star Michelle Rodriguez.
