Australia–“Birthday boy Brian McFadden has revealed the bitter stalemate which exists between the Irish crooner and his ex-wife Kerry Katona. Despite being happily engaged to Sydney songbird Delta Goodrem (pictured), the former Westlife singer has made a rare admission about the poisonous relationship between him and the mother of his two daughters.
“Lamenting spending his birthday alone over the weekend – with Goodrem on promo duties in the US and his children in Katona’s custody in the UK – McFadden said he was kept from his kids by his ex.
“Asked in an Australian radio interview this week if he’d received birthday messages from his daughters, Molly-Marie, 6, and Lilly-Sue, 5, a mopey McFadden carded Katona:
“‘When they’re not with me, the other side isn’t too keen on helping (connect) like that. And I wouldn’t accept them – (birthday cards) would probably have anthrax in them or something.'”
Rich man or poor man, famous or obscure, the story of the vindictive ex separating children from their father somehow always seems the same.
