MELBOURNE, Australia (AFP) - Elderly heart patients were moved from their beds in an Australian hospital so that pop diva Kylie Minogue could have
an entire ward for herself when she underwent breast cancer surgery last month, a newspaper said.
Doctors and patients were angered when Minogue was given eight of 18 cardio rooms in Melbourne's Cabrini Hospital for her May 20 operation, the
Herald Sun daily said.
Hospital spokeswoman Jackie Meiers told the newspaper none of the patients were compromised as a result of the singer's stay.
Minogue's cancer, discovered just after the 36-year-old singer returned to Australia from her London home to begin a concert tour, drew international
media attention and her family sought to keep reporters and cameras at arms length.
i wish i was like her to get such treatment and caring like dat, but in anicase its ridiculous to dink that they should push the elderly aside just
for her. and if they try to make an excuse that the elderly may be fans of Minogue and bother her is no excuse either since the senior citizens are
more interested in staying alive then asking for autographs.
