Kylie Minogue signs with Netflix to film her tell-all documentary

Here's all we know...

Beloved Australian singer Kylie Minogue has signed a seven-figure deal with Netflix to film her tell-all documentary.

Over the last year the pop legend has sparked a major bidding war between streaming services following her recent rise in success with her comeback single Padam Padam. Now, The Mirror has confirmed Netflix beat rivals such as Apple+ and Disney with the rights to her life story, and filming is set to begin later this year.

A source told the publication: “There was a serious bidding war over this. Kylie’s had an incredible life, from starring in Neighbours to becoming a pop icon and still dominating the charts decades later. She has a massive fan-base so there’s no question it will attract a huge audience. That’s why the offers went so high – everyone’s very excited.”

Separate from her music and acting career, Kylie has also faced difficulties in her personal life. In 2005, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and was in recovery for over a year.

She spoke about her journey with CBS News in 2023: “It’s trauma, and any trauma resides within you,” she said.

“The experience of a cancer diagnosis will live in me. It was difficult. It was also amazing.”

Though no more information about the documentary has been revealed – discussion of its release has been circulating for months.

Back in August 2023, Kylie spoke with E! News revealing that he’d like Robbie to play her in a future biopic about her life and career. Fans grow curious as to whether her new movie will tell her story through a documentary or biopic…
