DARKNESS singer Justin Hawkins got over his break-up from ex-fiance SUE WHITEHOUSE by having his genitals pierced.

The I BELIEVE IN A THING CALLED LOVE star says he has piercings whenever he feels depressed - so he chose the most painful place when he separated from his former manager.

Hawkins explains, "Me and Sue split up and I made some mistakes. So then I thought, 'What's the most painful place to have a piercing?' I've taken it out now."
