Brian McFadden Incident Did He Take The Fall For Kyle?

As we all know the headlines in the news yesterday were about Brian McFadden being met by the Australian Federal Police at the Sydney Airport when he arrived from a flight from LA.

The Daily Telegraph reports both Brian McFadden and Kyle Sandilands were met when they got of the flight, as there were allegations of smoking in the toilets.

The article said:

IT WAS the middle of the night, high above the Pacific, when some sleeping passengers were woken by laughs and loud conversation on the red-eye flight from LA to Sydney early yesterday.

The noise appeared to be coming from the bar at the rear of the business class cabin, where singer Brian McFadden and best mate Kyle Sandilands were perched.

No one else was seated on the purple leather bar stools of the V Australia Boeing 777, where the pair was enjoying a chat and a “few” beverages.

The duo was toasting their return to start auditions for Australia’s Got Talent and Irish crooner McFadden’s tipple of choice was a vodka mixer. It was all good fun, until things turned serious.

Flight attendants apparently became aware of the smell of cigarette smoke wafting through the aircraft.

No alarms were set off but they were certain someone, against regulations, had been smoking in the lavatory.

An “aggressive” conversation then ensued between McFadden, Sandilands and the flight crew, with repeated denials from the former Boyzone singer that he was the culprit. Sandilands backed his buddy, exclaiming “there is no way” McFadden would smoke on a plane.

“They were arguing, a lot of us heard it,” Ryan, an economy passenger from Camperdown, said.

Standard protocol was followed by the cabin crew and Sydney Airport was radioed and told there had been an incident with two passengers.

“Smoking, aggressive behaviour and not following the orders of staff,” was the initial brief relayed to the Australian Federal Police, who were waiting at the gate when the plane touched down at 8.30am. McFadden and Sandilands were escorted off the aircraft and interviewed.

In the initial media reports on radio there was no mention of popular DJ and judge on Australia’s Got Talent. It has been reported before Kyle Sandiland does not drink alcohol, but he does smoke. But obviously the finger must have been pointed at Brian.

Anyway as usual they have both come across as a couple of arrogant gits.

Also listeners of his show will now realise he had not been live on breakfast radio that morning because he was on the plane. However I doubt that revelation will make a dint in his radio ratings. (Source: Daily Telegraph)

I shouldn’t know this but McNugget’s from Westlife and not Boyzone, Daily Tele. 😛

Kenobi – as long as you don’t have one of their albums it is OK to know that.

Aww but Westlife was so awesome! In a completely boyband fangirly way. I’m into the Backstreet Boys so I can’t say much.

Random thing about Kyle, I heard that this girl who was working behind the scenes or something for the X-Factor ad shoots and she said that Kyle was surprisingly co-operative and nice during the shoot (even though he had a posse of people posting on Twitter or what-not for him) but it was Natalie who was the bitchy, late, diva one. So even though Kyle’s probably a bit of a d*ck, I have to say, the media do love to paint him that way and he gets a lot of publicity from it. I personally don’t think he’s that bad.
