Delta Goodrem showed up in public following 'disgusting' claims by Brian McFadden. For the first time since sensational gossip about her and her ex, Brian McFadden, broke, 39 year old Delta Goodrem was spotted in sight.

The acclaimed Australian singer delivered a spirited act for an audience of 1,000 fans at Fifi, Fev and Nick's Brekky In The Burbs live event.

Sporting a trendy grey jacket twinned with chunky gold hoop hoops, she performed three mesmerising songs for the crowd in Melbourne, reports the Mirror.

This marked her foremost public sighting since the controversial radio presenter Kyle Sandilands aired claims about her erstwhile relationship with the Westlife musician, implying that he saw them "spit" into each other's mouths.

"They'd just spit in each other's mouths and giggle," he alleged.

"I was like... 'you're in my lounge room what's going on here'... it was like Travis Barker and [Kourtney] Kardashian.

In 2004, when Brian met Delta, he requested her to collaborate on their duet song - Almost Here.

Notably, the Westlife singer was still tied in marriage with Kerry Katona back then, with whom he has two daughters Molly, 22, and Lilly-Sue, 21.

The pair had separated at the time, and the song is believed to mirror their dissolution.

Brian moved on with Delta and they became engaged in 2007. However, four years later they called it quits. Kerry and Brian were married from 2002 until 2006.

The Atomic Kitten star has since said that if she had not appeared on Loose Women and accepted Brian's invitation to join them in the recording studio, their lives may have taken a wholly different path.

She said: "It was always my Brian this and that, and then one day Brian said to me, 'I'm recording a new single with someone called Deltra Goodrem- come with me', and I was like 'I can't come I'm on Loose Women'. Imagine if I didn't I'd still be married..."

Kerry confessed: "If someone falls out of love with you there's nothing you can do."

Brian found love with Vogue Williams in 2012 following his split from Delta, however, they divorced three years later.
