Fans threaten to boycott Holly Valance over Trump photo
Holly Valance is causing a stir on social media after she and husband Nick Candy joined Donald Trump and Nigel Farage for dinner at Mar-a-Lago – as fans of the former pop star threaten to BOYCOT his music
Holly Valance has drawn backlash on Twitter from some of her longtime fans after dining with former US President Donald Trump and British Conservative politician Nigel Farage.
The former Neighbors star and her billionaire husband, property developer Nick Candy, dined with Trump and Farage at Trump’s Palm Beach Resort, Mar-a-Lago.
The photo caused a stir among loyal fans of Valance’s music, with many swearing they would never listen to the 38-year-old’s hits like Kiss Kiss again.

“Gay Twitter, I’m distraught,” tweeted HIV activist and writer Tom Hayes.
“Holly Valance is a Farage and Trump fan. I will have to remove it from my playlists. Sorry.’
“I’m going to use Holly Valance’s 2003 album ‘State Of Mind’ to express my thoughts on this photo…” tweeted theater manager Peter Holland.
’12: Double Take 5. Curious 3. Everything I Hate 9. Over ‘n’ Out,’ Peter added.
“We lost Holly Valance. Obviously she’s not in the right frame of mind,’ added pop music podcaster Bradley Stern of Legends Only.
“Please respect my privacy at this time,” he added.

Despite the backlash, some others on social media weren’t as upset as longtime Valance fans.
“Twitter is collapsing because Holly Valance is hanging out with Trump and Farage. Rich people with bad opinions hanging out with each other, color me shocked!!!!’ tweeted one.
Another joked: ‘You’ve done it now #hollyvalance once seen with the orange man there’s no turning back – the cancellation crowd will be foaming at the mouth. Many #hollyvalance fans are now suffering from PTSD!’
Never again? Many fans said they could no longer listen to Holly’s 2003 State of Mind album due to her political associations.

Despite her celebrity status, Holly and husband Nick tend to keep a fairly low profile and rarely attend red carpet events.
The couple, who married in 2012, enjoy a lavish lifestyle and previously lived in a £175million two-storey Hyde Park penthouse, making it the flat most expensive in Britain.
Nick and Holly have since downsized to a £10million country mansion in the Cotswolds, which they recently refurbished.
Nick gifted Holly a £26million superyacht last year, despite the mother-of-two suffering from seasickness.
