Sharing it with his fans in a concert, the Boyzone singer calls separation from wife Yvonne is a 'scary time'.
Irish singer Ronan Keating has broken his silence to thank fans for their support after his marriage was rocked by affair allegations. The Boyzone star announced his separation from his wife of 12 years, Yvonne, in May and was subsequently hit by rumors he'd enjoyed a fling with a dancer on his tour last year.
Keating, who shares three kids with Yvonne, has kept tight-lipped about the scandal - but he opened up to fans at an intimate gig at Henley Festival in England on Sunday, July 11. The star, who was wearing his wedding ring, confessed to the crowd of about 300 that he was terrified of losing his wife.
An emotional Keating said, "It has been a really scary time. Thanks so much for all the support from you over the past few weeks. You were the ones who kept me going." The couple is reportedly living in the same house - but sleeping in separate bedrooms - for the sake of their children.
