After a drama-packed week, could the famous former couple be ready to reunite after three months apart?
When Dannii Minogue’s flight from Melbourne to Sydney was struck by lightning a few weeks ago, for one petrifying moment she believed she was about to die. "It happened right next to where I was sitting. I was terrified – I thought it was all over," says the Australia’s Got Talent judge.
It was one mid-air mishap too many for Dannii, who’s had her fair share of in-flight freak-outs. Two years ago, her London to Melbourne flight ended in a horror landing. "We had the most terrible landing. We were coming down to land and suddenly shot straight back up again," a friend of Dannii’s revealed at the time. "There was too much cloud and the pilot could not see the runway. It was all very scary."
By all accounts, it was a traumatic experience – enough to leave anyone reassessing what’s important. So it’s little wonder some industry insiders are speculating that the 40-year-old singer’s near-death experience may be connected to whispers she and her ex, 33-year-old Myer ambassador Kris Smith, may be getting back together.
Friends of the gorgeous couple, who split in April this year, are hoping they will officially announce their reconciliation any day, bringing both parents back under one roof for the sake of their 23-month-old son, Ethan. "Dannii's feelings for Kris never went away. She really loves him and although they have not reunited yet, they could well get back together," a source tells new! magazine.
