Appearing in public is kinda public domain when you're showing. My point is this isn't a confirmed affair, and we're discussing something that might not be the big scandal the papers claim to be. Can't believe how much importance you are all putting on twitter either.
If I stay awake, it must be good.

i dont put much importance on twitter either (i dont even have an account) however if you have a major story like this that isnt true and you have twitter, the first thing youd do is issue a denial

Going by the photo, Martin's 2 tweets - one a week or two ago about the engagement being off and around the same time a tweet saying he was not following a person it suggested he follow (presumably Ben!) and the lack of any denial from Gina or Ben about this - it all suggests (to me anyway) that the story is probably true. He probably discovered what was going on or maybe Gina confessed to him.
I feel sorry for Ben's wife and child and Martin too who have all been dragged into this. Very sad for them. Have no sympathy for Gina or Ben, they knew what they were doing and kissing on the Tube when anyone with a mobile could have taken that photo was very careless.

It's a valid point. I personally have kept quiet as I don't see the point in discussing this continuously on public domains. It's an issue Gina and Ben have to deal with on their own. They're both responsible adults who don't need constant 'we love you and still support you' tweets from fans as if they're saints or some kind of heroes.

It's Ben's wife and child, and Martin I feel for.

Those tweets (most probably from the current batch of Wicked fan-girls) are pathetic, they have both caused so much damage by what they have done, one to a wife and child, one to a fiancé who obviously loved her very much. All thrown away for the sake of a quick fling. Sad.

Twitter has a lot to answer for in these situations, I loathe reading simpering fan-girl tweets.
That's the last thing anyone involved in this wants to read.

I completely agree with Sam. Constant 'I love and support you' just because you love a performer on stage is ludicrous and quite frankly naive. If this was one of my favourite performers I wouldn't automatically jump to their defence.

It's a sad situation for all involved. But there's no need to come to any good or bad conclusions. Let them deal with it. They put themselves into this position, they should have expected the consequences.

The "omg you are amazing and the sweetest person ever" tweets to them are just as bad as the harsh judgmental ones. Just leave them be.
