Heartbroken Westlife star Mark Feehily has admitted he’s “totally lost” without his ex-fiance Kevin McDaid.
The singer revealed the pair had split at Christmas in a dramatic Twitter announcement to his fans.
And last night Mark finally spoke out about his break-up, confessing to a pal: “I couldn’t even stand the thought of being with anyone else. There’s no chance. I’m totally lost without Kevin.
His friend said: “Mark really misses Kevin in his life. He’s finding it really hard. He is still incredibly upset and raw about the split. He wants time to get over his split and doesn’t want any other guys on the scene.
“He’s trying to keep his chin up but he has good days and bad days. He’s not at all over Kevin yet. Mark’s family have been rallying around and he has some great friends too.
“But he’s also spending a lot of time on his own just trying to come to terms with it all. He’s very emotional.”
Mark, 31, stunned fans when he announced the break-up on Twitter. He told his followers: “Sadly, Kevin and I are no longer together. We’ve had an amazing seven years. We won’t be answering any questions about this as it’s a very private matter.”
Mark is believed to be spending his time in the North London apartment he used to share with Kevin. His ex has moved out and is living at the home of a friend.
The couple were due to marry this year and were planning their dream wedding day. But their relationship hit the skids two months ago after a series of rows. They managed to keep the break-up a secret for a number of weeks.
The friend added: “Kevin and Mark still text the odd time to keep in touch. There is no feud or bad feeling between them. But obviously they are both trying to start over again and adjust to life on their own after spending the past seven years together.
“Mark just isn’t ready to speak about it publicly yet. He’s too upset about the whole thing but in time he’ll talk.”
Mark met photographer Kevin, 27, at a charity concert in Dublin in 2005. They went public with the relationship in 2007 when the Irish star came out in an interview that year.
Kevin, from Newcastle in England, was part of boyband V until 2005.
