Gabrielle weeps for accused ex-lover.

Pop star Gabrielle was in tears yesterday for the ex-lover branded a savage killer.

She broke down after giving evidence at the murder trial of the father of her son.

She described Anthony Antoniou as a "romantic" who was always buying her presents and giving her little surprises.

"He is a kind and considerate man who would spoil me rotten," she said.

Antoniou, 30, is accused of hacking off his stepfather's head with a samurai sword. Then, while allegedly planning to cover up the crime, he stayed at the singer's home.

Gabrielle, 29 - real name Louise Bobb - recently stormed the charts with Walk On By and was voted Best British Female Artist at the Brit Awards.

Yesterday she winked and smiled at Antoniou.

The court heard she still regarded him as "one of the family". A note he had scribbled was pushed into her hand and she suddenly burst into tears.

Antoniou and Timothy Redhead, 29, are alleged to have killed Walter McCarthy, 59, after he boasted of abusing children.

He was stabbed 52 times and then his head was hacked off.

Antoniou and Redhead, both from Sheffield, deny murder.

The trial goes on.
