Sugababe back on track after rough patch

Sugababes beauty Amelle Berrabah has ended her four year relationship with Freddie Fuller after battling depression and receiving death threats.

Sugababes beauty Amelle Berrabah has ended her four year relationship with Freddie Fuller after battling depression and receiving death threats.

The 23-year-old singer split from tree surgeon Fuller in January after he was arrested in relation to the alleged rape of Berrabah's younger sister.

Berrabah was reported to have given their relationship another try after Fuller strenuously denied the claims against him, but they have now split again.

She confirms: "I have split from Freddie for good and am recovering with the girls. My life is back on track.

The pop star's oldest sister Zakiya, 33, says: "Amelle has been going through a really tough time getting death threats and abuse because of her relationship with Freddie. She has even had the tyres slashed on her car. She wants to make it clear the relationship is over."

In June the pop trio were forced to cancel a gig in Aberdeen, Scotland, claiming Berrabah was ill. However, Zakiya says Berrabah was suffering from depression and was too unhappy to perform.

Zakiya continues: "There were stories that Amelle went to a hotel in Surrey (England) to get engaged, but she was actually in the room alone suffering depression.

"She has been struggling and has had to see a psychotherapist to get over her problems. Amelle was really suffering, but now she is feeling much better and is working really hard."
