Former Westlife hunk BRIAN McFadden has reportedly met up with his wife KERRY to deny her claims he slept with another woman.

The pop hunk's punishing solo schedule damaged his relationship with the ex-Atomic Kitten and the couple's daughters MOLLY, three and LILY SUE, one, leading to their separation last month (SEP04).

But Kerry secretly feared Brian was absent for long periods of time because he was having an affair, and despite Brian's fervent denials at London's Conrad Hotel last week (ends22OCT04) Kerry refused to believe him and stormed out of the room in tears, reports Britain's The Sun newspaper.

An insider says, "They met up to discuss the practicalities of breaking up. But before long Kerry broke down and begged Brian to tell her who he is seeing.

"She is convinced someone else is involved. Brian told her he is not with anyone else but she doesn't believe him. She is utterly heartbroken over the split because she is still in love with Brian."
