Described by her bandmates in All Saints as the most bubbly and flirtatious of the group, Nicole Appleton parted ways with the girls in 2001, partly due to jealousy regarding the heavy tabloid coverage received by Nic and her sister Natalie. Directly after the All Saints split, the two siblings joined up as a duo called Appleton, but their music was always overshadowed by gossip. This wasn't helped by the fact that the two had previously appeared nude in the movie Honest. Nicole continued to fuel the gossip with tales of her celebrity romances: she explained to tabloids that her record label persuaded her to abort her love child fathered by Robbie Williams, the Sun reported her in-depth sexual exploits with Jamie Theakston, she had a baby with Oasis star Liam Gallagher, and marriage rumors circulated about when and if the two would ever tie the knot. They eventually did in February of 2008, six and a half years after their son was born, and although Appleton were put on the back burner, Nicole insisted that her music was still a top priority for the future. ~ Jason Lymangrover, Rovi
