According to The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column, in new book ‘Westlife Uncensored’, he explains: “I went to the minibar, opened it and drank ten of those little bottles straight through, then all the beer. Then I tried to lift up the telly. I wanted to throw it out the window, and it fell on my head.
“I was trying to be a rock star. But it fell a***ways, and I did – that’s how I fell asleep. I went to work the next day and the guys thought, ‘He’s gone mad’.”
Brian, 40, quit Westlife in 2004 in order to pursue a solo career and revealed his former bandmates – Shane Filan, Kian Egan, Nicky Byrne and Mark Feehily – turned down a lucrative offer for them all to reunite.
He said: “I was offered a big multi-million pound deal. It was the other boys in Westlife who said ‘no’. They didn’t want me back.
“How does that make me feel? It makes me pretty upset because I didn’t realise they still had those feelings towards me.”
Shane previously said: “I haven’t seen Brian in ten years. We’ve just lost touch. It’s like going to school with somebody and then not speaking.
“We all had a good relationship with Brian, then he just left the band very early on. And I don’t think we would ever reunite with him. I honestly see Westlife as being four people now. The four people who started and finished Westlife are what I consider the band.”
