Brian McFadden Refuels Delta Goodrem’s Singing & Songwriting Passion

Delta Goodrem tells The Daily Telegraph the inspiration for her new comeback single ‘In This Life’ was her former Westlife singing lover Brian McFadden, who refueled her passion for singing and songwriting. “I have had my space away from people to deal with my personal demons and feelings. Now I’ve moved on and I don’t think about it,” Goodrem explained. “When my parents divorced, I never knew we would all end up in the places we have but I have to accept change and I’m ready to start again. This last couple of years I’ve grown a lot, I’ve traveled the world a lot on my own and I am much wiser and more capable to handle the pressures.” Read more.

Brian McFadden’s Ex Blasts Child Custody Threat

Kerry Katona is hitting back at former hubby Brian McFadden after he threatened to get custody of their two children – Molly, 5, and Lilly-Sue, 4. Their latest battle stems from drug dealer Leighton Ogden’s claim in News of the World that Kerry was more concerned about drugs than her daughters. “It’s a shame Brian is so desperate that he has to use me and the children for coverage,” Katona alleged to The Sun. “The last time he did this the social services came round and gave me a clean bill of health. Brian is never around. He hasn’t been for years. If it helps resurrect his career that died long ago then I wish him all the luck in the world. He said it before but he never followed it up. I’m sure in six months time he’ll say it again.” She added: “These stories are nonsense. I just hope he manages to get a hit record so he can stop all this.”
