Dannii Minogue is dating Adrian Sieber, the lead singer of the Swiss rock band Lovebugs. According to a report published by the Daily Mirror on Jan. 6, 2014, Minogue (who is 42) and Sieber (who is 41) were seen acting like a couple (holding hands, etc.) while on public outings in Sydney. During one of their public outings, they spent the day at Bilgola Beach with her 4-year-old son, Ethan, and some other people on Jan. 3, 2014. The Daily Mail has paparazzi photos of Minogue and Sieber spending couple time together.

Minogue became a judge on "The X Factor" Australia in 2013. She was a judge on "The Factor" U.K. from 2007 to 2010 and a judge on "Australia's Got Talent" from 2007 to 2012.

The Daily Mirror and other British tabloids have been publishing rumors that Minogue could be back as a judge on "The X Factor" U.K. in 2014, but she has made it clear in interviews that she wants to remain on "The X Factor" Australia, since she wants to raise Ethan in Australia, where he goes to school. Minogue has told the media that her son's upbringing in Australia is why she turned down an offer in 2012 to return to "The X Factor" U.K.

Ethan's father is rugby-player-turned-model Kris Smith, who also lives in Australia. Smith and Minogue (who were never married) broke up in 2012 after four years together.

Before she began dating Smith, Minogue had a fling with Simon Cowell when they worked together as judges on "The X Factor" U.K.

Cowell revealed the affair in interviews that he did for the 2012 biography "Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life of Simon Cowell."

Sharon Osbourne famously quit "The X Factor" U.K. judging panel in 2007 because she said she no longer wanted to work with Minogue. Osbourne and Minogue both described their versions of their feud in their respective memoirs. Osbourne claims that Minogue was a difficult and arrogant diva, while Minogue claims that Osbourne was was an ill-tempered co-worker who instigated the feud.

In 2013, Osbourne returned to "The X Factor" U.K. judging panel, and she told the media that it was her last year with the show because she did not want to keep commuting back and forth between the U.K. and the U.S., since she also co-hosts the Los Angeles-based daytime chat show "The Talk." During her return to "The X Factor" U.K., Osbourne mentored Sam Bailey, who was the show's winner in 2013.

Minogue's first year as a judge on "The X Factor" Australia also resulted in her being the winning judge/mentor. Minogue mentored Dami Im, who was the show's winner in 2013.

According to the Daily Mirror, Minogue is working on a new studio album that could be released in 2014. Her most recent album is 2007's "Club Disco."

Minogue isn't the only TV talent show judge in her family. Her older sister Kylie Minogue is a judge on "The Voice" U.K., whose third season premieres on BBC1 on Jan. 11, 2014.
