Dannii Mingoue’s had a rough few weeks. She has split with boyfriend of four years Kris Smith, and there’s all the Simon Cowell drama going on, too – so we’re not surprised to hear that she’s let her hair down (metaphorically speaking, she’s got a cute pixie crop at the mo) at a One Direction gig in her hometown.
The former X Factor judge – who piped 1D to the X Factor post with her act Matt Cardle – was spotted watching the boys as they performed at a show in Melbourne in Australia. Dannii was given the full VIP treatment at the show, and was even spotted chatting with the boys,
“Dannii told One Direction she is really proud of them,” a source tells The Metro. “Last time she saw them was on The X Factor at the beginning of their journey. So to see them on stage in her hometown with so many screaming fans was a very special moment for her. She loved the gig.”
We hope that dancing around to some 1D tunes made Dannii smile.
Dannii and Kris split
On 4 April Dannii confirmed the news that she has split from Kris Smith, who is the father of her son, Ethan.
It brings me great sadness to tell you that Kris & I have separated,” she wrote on Twitter at the time. “We still care for each other & ask for privacy at this difficult time, in particular for our son Ethan who remains our number one priority.
She continued, “Needing to retreat for a while. Thank you for your ever loving continued support.”
