Brian McFadden has been arrested in Sydney after getting aggressive on a flight from LA. The singer was on a business flight returning to the country when witnesses on the same Virgin flight said he “became visibly drunk and abused staff and fellow passengers.” He was travelling with radio host and friend Kyle Sandilands, who had to bring him back to business class after he went on a tirade in economy. This comes shortly after he unleashed on Twitter a few days ago, writing things like:
I get uneducated tweets from people from a country I will leave unnamed. But f**k you are dumb and irritating and live your life by tabloids
Meanwhile, his fiancée Delta Goodrem has been excited about sharing some of her new music with family and friends. Brian is currently being held by federal police in Sydney.
