Australian singer Delta Goodrem's tuneless performance at Sunday's (17OCT04) Aria awards has been blamed on recent paparazzi photos of her lover Mark Philippoussis kissing another woman.

The star's official website DELTAGOODREM.COM has been inundated with messages from fans claiming her live rendition of the chart-topping single OUT OF THE BLUE - which she wrote for the tennis ace - was affected by speculations about the Wimbledon hunk's fidelity.

Goodrem's family refuse to comment whether the two have officially split, but Australia's THE HERALD SUN newspaper claims she is "shattered by the news of her boyfriend's lack of commitment and loyalty".
