Delta Goodrem Speaks About Cancer Battle and Boyfriend Brian McFadden

Delta Goodrem

Delta Goodrem has spoken candidly about her battle with cancer and her being labeled as a "home-wrecker".

Delta Goodrem speaks up. The Australian singer-songwriter breaks her silence and has spoken candidly about her cancer battle and her being labeled as a "home wrecker" that played part in the divorce of her boyfriend Brian McFadden and his wife Kerry Katona.

"I just shook," when being diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a form of cancer, in 2003, at the age of 18, Goodrem told Andrew Denton of the ABC television program "Enough Rope." "I shook for the next 24 hours, 48 hours and I just burst into tears obviously and I was petrified."

She went on saying, "I got a bit angry. . . I got back into music far too quickly doing the Mistaken Identity. People were starting for the first time say to say negative things about me. I didn't really enjoy it. It was all too serious."

Apparently began dating Westlife singer McFadden in December 2004 only makes matter worse for Goodrem. British tabloids pointed their finger at her, labeled her as a "home wrecker" that caused the separation of McFadden and then-wife Katona who initially split in September 2004.

"That was like the pinnacle of when I started to go 'this is not enjoyable anymore'," Goodrem said on the issue. "I only got in this. . . to do music and to bring out a positive message. And I, and I felt really betrayed."

That's the reason why "I thought the best thing I could do was keep my dignity and be quiet about it. Maybe that wasn't the best thing I could have done. Maybe I should have said 'no, that's not how it happened,' but I didn't."

McFadden married Katona on January 5, 2002. The couple announced their separation in September 2004 and their divorce was finalized in December 2006. McFadden is now battling her over custody of their daughters Molly Marie McFadden and Lilly-Sue McFadden.
