Editors of British newspaper The Sun report that scammers hacked an official ticket website that was selling VIP seats for Barry's final U.K. tour in June next year (16).

The website, Stiletto Solutions, is run by Barry's husband Garry Kief.

One unlucky victim lost $7,200 (£4,500) to fraudsters who tried to buy a bathroom suite and a pizza, while another fan was told online thieves attempted to purchase a mobile home using her credit card.

Barry told The Sun he feels terrible for the unlucky fans, but insists the issue has now been "resolved". He added, "Fortunately this was resolved quickly and we can all look forward to our U.K. tour."
