Kylie Minogue could be the next high-profile artist to depart from record label EMI, if today's reports prove to be accurate.
THe pop star is reportedly disappointed with the sales of her comeback album 'X', which has sold a total of 315,000 copies to date, and is currently at No. 40 on the albums chart after just seven weeks.
Industry sources reveal Kylie and her management put the blame squarely at the door of EMI for the poor sales.
"It has not been the massive comeback Kylie has hoped for and the blame has to fall at someone's door," an insider told the Daily Star. "It is hoped that the flagging sales will pick up with the release of her second single, 'Wow', but if not it could be curtains for her relationship with EMI."
A spokesman for Parlophone records added, "This is not something I want to comment on at this stage."
Robbie WIlliams and Coldplay are both reportedly considering leaving EMI, with Radiohead departing last year after contract ended.
