Well, it's happened again, folks. Seems we'd only just got over the hysteria of Kian being attacked by a Lion (and when I say hysteria, I mean 'laughing uncontrollably'), when it happens again.
Yes, Westlife have been charged by a rhino.
Or so Heat magazine says, and their info probably came from a certain Louis Walsh, who is the king of making up unbelievable stories for the press. You have to wonder, really, if he didn't realise everyone would think 'hmm... isn't this like that lion attack that didn't actually happen?' Apparently not.
Not to mention an almost identical story broke in July. Involving a rhino. Nice one, Louis.
Now, hands up, who sees a load of old horse bollocks?
Apart from Kian, who's being trampled by a horse right now... Or possibly a peacock... Or maybe even a Stegosaurus...
Exclusive: Westlife Attacked by 2 Ton Rhino
13 August 2006

POP idols Westlife fled in terror when they were attacked by a giant two-ton RHINO.
The horned beast charged the four horrified singers at a safari park.
And only the quick-thinking of their guide saved the Irish quartet from disaster.
The ordeal began for Kian Egan, Shane Filan, Mark Feehily and Nicky Byrne as they toured Knowsley Safari Park in Liverpool.
Their car startled a 15ft-long white rhino - and the brute rampaged towards them. Park boss David Ross slammed his foot on the accelerator and sped off with only seconds to spare.
He said: "It certainly caused a bit of excitement in the car and we had to beat a hasty retreat. The rhino was sweltering in the heat and I think we got a bit too close."
He added: "The boys fully enjoyed their trip - even though it was bit frightening."
White rhinos are normally gentle vegetarians who almost never attack humans.
But the rare animals still account for about 100 deaths a year worldwide.
