Westlife's Mark Feehily Splits From Boyfriend
Singer and long-term partner Kevin McDaid have parted company...
Westlife star Mark Feehily and his long-term boyfriend Kevin McDaid have ended their relationship, it is our sad duty to report.
The pair had been one of the longest-running young couples in showbizland - having been together for seven years.
Mark, 31, first revealed their relationship to the world when he came out as gay in 2005.
He broke the sad news of their split via Twitter, saying: "Sadly, Kevin & I are no longer together. We've had an amazin 7yrs &are both so thankful for the love&support u have shown us from the start."
And he added: "We won't be answering any questions about this as its a very private matter.Thanks in advance for understanding that.Lots of love,Mx"
The news is especially sad because only last year Mark was talking about how keen they were to get married and have children.
He told The Mirror in an interview last March: "We're best friends and we live together and we're going to get married soon. I can't wait, but we haven't finalised the date."
