From the years of 2004 to 2011, Australia was eagerly waiting for the wedding of golden couple Delta Goodrem and Brian McFadden.
Goodrem, now 33, had spent the majority of her career as one of Australia’s highest-selling pop artists, and her fiancé McFadden was an ex-member of Irish boyband Westlife, before beginning a successful solo career of his own.
However in 2011, the pair announced that they were calling off their engagement, and while Goodrem has remained in the public eye, McFadden’s presence has been a bit more patchy.
McFadden, 38 and from Dublin, Ireland, first re-appeared in the Australian media after Goodrem’s 2012 interview with Vogue Australia, which shed a negative light over their relationship.
“There is so much I’d like to say. I was really unhappy and I didn’t know how to get out. I learned. I got there in the end,” she told the publication.
McFadden retaliated through a Twitter rant.
“Sometimes silence is golden. People love to try and deflect attention from their own downfalls onto others,” he wrote.
“And for the record. I’ve seen it all before!! Randomly want to thank (then fiancée) Vogue Williams for making me the happiest man on the planet.”
