Kylie Minogue reveals Michael Hutchence cried when he broke up with her

Michael Hutchence was on all fours, on the floor of his New York hotel room, crying.

The rockstar had just told Kylie Minogue he wanted to end their relationship, but he was the one taking the decision the worst.

‘Was it work, was it the drugs? I don’t know. He was like a broken man,’ Minogue says looking back. 

Minogue’s raw revelation is part of the never before seen footage to feature in a new documentary on the INXS front man’s life and death – Mystify: Michael Hutchence. 

The film’s director Richard Lowenstein, himself a long-time friend of Hutchence and director of several INXS videos, recently found the footage in his attic after 30 years.

'She (Minogue) has spoken before but never like this, let me tell you (it's) totally uncensored,' the film's director said of the popstar's candidness about her relationship with Hutchence (The pair are pictured at the Chanel Haute Couture collection in 1992)

Some of the footage featured in the film shows Minogue and Hutchence on holiday together throughout Europe, News Corp reports.

The pop princess also revealed how their romance started with faxes to each other’s hotels.

They used made up names – she was ‘Gabby Jones’ and he went by ‘Swordfish’ – so no one would know.

‘(It) felt loving, yet sad, but was probably doomed,’ Minogue says of their romance in the documentary.

She told how Hutchence flew her from Japan to New York in 1991 to tell he wanted to break up with her.

‘(Michael was) on the floor, on all fours, crying,’ Minogue said. 

Documentary-maker Lowenstein said the footage he uncovered featured her talking more candidly about her romance with the rocker than she had ever been before.

‘She has spoken before but never like this, let me tell you (it’s) totally uncensored,’ Mr Lowenstein told the Sydney Morning Herald

Mr Lowenstein began filming interviews for the film a decade ago after viewing many documentaries he claims didn’t truly represent ‘the man he knew’.

Among the stars to feature in the film are U2’s Bono and another of Hutchence’s ex-girlfriends Helena Christensen.

Ms Christensen, a Danish supermodel, was dating the superstar singer at the time he was bashed by a taxi driver in Copenhagen in 1992.

She tells the film how the king-hit attack left him with a brain injury and ‘throwing up blood and pushing away all food’.

The supermodel said that after the assault he had ‘a dark, angry side came out’. 

Hutchence lost his sense of smell and taste from the assault and was forced to live in darkness in her apartment for months afterwards.

Ms Christensen says the incident contributed to the depression which spiralled out of control and led to his eventual suicide in a Sydney hotel room five years later.

‘Helena (Christensen) is a big key to the story,’ Mr Lowenstein said.

Hutchence was discovered dead in his room at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Double Bay, Sydney, on November 22 1997.

The 37-year-old, who had checked into the hotel four days earlier under the name ‘Mr Murray River’, appeared to have hanged himself with his snake skin belt.

A post-mortem examination found alcohol, cocaine, codeine, Prozac, Valium and other prescribed benzodiazepines – or ‘benzos’ – in Hutchence’s urine and blood. He left no suicide note.

In the hours before his death Hutchence had spoken by telephone to his parnter Paula Yates, the former wife of Boomtown Rats lead singer and Live Aid planner Bob Geldof, and to Geldof himself.

Hutchence had been hoping Yates would visit Australia with their 16-month-old daughter Tiger Lily and two of her three daughters with Geldof, ahead of the last leg of an INXS world tour.

But Yates and Geldof were embroiled in a bitter custody dispute and Hutchence learnt on the morning he died the children would not be coming out. That meant Yates would not be coming either.

The night before his death Hutchence shared dinner with his father Kel.

Between 11pm and 5am the next day he was with his onetime lover, actor Kym Wilson, and her then boyfriend Andrew Rayment at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel.

The trio drank vodka, beer, champagne and cocktails during the night.

WAS HUTCHENCE’S DEATH A SUICIDE? 

A NSW coroner found Hutchence killed himself with a snake-skin belt while depressed and under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

Hutchence’s partner Paula Yates claimed a year before her own death her lover likely died accidentally while choking himself for sexual pleasure, as the pair had engaged in similar sex games 

Michael’s younger brother Rhett has also long disputed the findings of the coroner. 

In 2017, on what would have been the 57th birthday of Hutchence, Rhett put out a statement questioning how his brother died.

Rhett posted on social media: ‘Only three things could have happened that day.’

‘Michael may have committed suicide. Michael may have passed due to lack of oxygen, due to sexual misadventure, or Michael was killed.

‘In the last 19 years, looking, searching, talking to people, I have found all three things to be plausible, but I still don’t have a solid answer.’

Earlier this year Rhett, who is the INXS singer’s next-of-kin, was revealed to have had Michael’s coronial file sealed.

Hutchence was apparently upset when he spoke to another former girlfriend, Michele Bennett, at 9.54am. Ms Bennett went to the hotel but could not rouse him by telephone or knocking on his door.

A maid found Hutchence dead behind his room door at 11.50am. Less than three months later, the police case was closed.

Hutchence’s brother Rhett has in recent years suggested Michael could have been killed by someone else.

In 2017, on what would have been Michael’s 57th birthday, he issued a statement on social media speculating about how his famous brother had died.

‘Only three things could have happened that day,’ Rhett wrote.

‘Michael may have committed suicide. Michael may have passed due to lack of oxygen, due to sexual misadventure, or Michael was killed.’

‘In the last 19 years, looking, searching, talking to people, I have found all three things to be plausible, but I still don’t have a solid answer.’

New South Wales State Coroner Derrick Hand found Hutchence killed himself while depressed and under the influence of alcohol and drugs, but a public inquest into the INXS frontman’s death was never held.

Shortly after Hutchence’s death, Sir Bob gained custody of his children with Yates, Fifi, Peaches and Pixie.

Paula Yates died of an accidental heroin overdose aged 41 in 2000. Sir Bob soon became legal guardian of Tiger Lily and later legally adopted her.

Hutchence’s father Kel died aged 78 in 2002. His mother, Patricia Glassop, who had objected to Sir Bob adopting Tiger Lily, died in 2010. She was 84.

Peaches Geldof, mother of two sons, died of a heroin overdose aged 25 in 2014.

Michele Bennett has had a successful career as a producer of documentaries, music videos for acts including Prince and Foo Fighters and films including Chopper, about the Melbourne criminal Mark ‘Chopper Read’.

Coroner Derrick Hand retired in 2000 after a distinguished 47-year career in the state’s courts.

The Ritz-Carlton Hotel is now the InterContinental Sydney Double Bay.
