‘I WAS SELFISH TO

Nadine Coyle has admitted she was “selfish” to
dump her loser drug
addict American boyfriend
Metcalfe, who played Gabby’s toyboy love interest in
the hit US show Desperate
Housewives, went into rehab
to conquer his booze and
But it was all too much for Derry singer Nadine, who gave him
the boot, mainly because of her
Now Nadine – who has been
ordered by her doctors to quit
music for a month after contracting
shingles – says she is wracked with
guilt about neglecting him in his
time of need.
“He had a horrible time going to
rehab and it was all too much for
me,” says Nadine.
“I blocked it out of my life and
decided not to be a part of it and
that’s wrong. That’s not something
you should do if you love somebody.
“I regretted being so selfish about
it and so dismissive of him genuinely having a problem.”
However, Nadine doesn’t miss
being Jesse’s arm candy.
“I don’t feel the need for another relationship. My life is fulfilled as it is and
I have loads of male friends so I’m never stuck for male company,” she says.
Since being dumped, Jesse has
become something of a laughing
stock on the social scene.
A You Tube video of him being
pummelled by British rapper Mams
Taylor has become a cult classic.
Taylor became incensed after
Jessie began pestering his girlfriend and gave the American star a
good old-fashioned beating.
Now Nadine’s family has set up a
chain of pubs and restaurants in
America. And it’s a fair bet, Hellraising hunk Jesse won’t be at the
top of their VIP guest list.
Shortly after Jesse went into rehab,
Coyle’s dad Niall said: “Nadine is in
total shock. She never saw this coming, and neither did we.
“We saw Jesse regularly when we
were in the US, and we often
thought he drank less than us.
“She is devastated this has happened and blames herself that she
didn’t see the warning signs.”
Meanwhile, Nadine says the main
reason she didn’t settle down with
Jesse was that he was too OLD for
her and that she didn’t want to settle down and have kids with him.
She writes in the band’s new autobiography, Dreams That Glitter, “I
was 20 when I met him and any talk
about a permanent future just
seemed very alien to me.
“Something I wasn't ready for. He
was 28 and wanted to settle down
and have a wife and a family.
“I was just too young to think
about settling down.”
