Kylie: "Leave Olivier Alone"
He's no love rat, says Ms Minogue - and Penelope Cruz denies fling too...
Kylie has begged everyone to stop laying into her ex, Olvier Martinez.
On her website, Ms Minogue - who wowed in a fabulous short dress amid a sea of full-length gowns at last night's BAFTAs (February 11) - wrote: "As for the treatment Olivier has received of late, I can only reiterate that he simply does not deserve the kind of harassment or vitriol to which he has been subjected.
"For someone whom I have enormous love and respect, and communicate with, it is so grossly unfair to demonise an honest man."
She added, "I would ask for you, my fans, to show your support for both Oli and myself as a separation is never easy."
Her posting comes off the back of Penelope Cruz's denial - the woman Olivier was linked to just one day after splitting from Kyles - that the pair are an item.
"Olivier and I have been friends for seven years," she said. "You can understand that it's a difficult time for him right now, so I have been there to offer support."
Olivier had also been linked to actress Michelle Rodriguez and model Sarai Givati before he and Kylie announced their separation on February 3.
