Louis dropped Westlife, twice

And Finally

Westlife’s Shane Filan has revealed that their manager Louis Walsh has dropped the band on two occasions, though in a ‘that’s it, I resign [drama queen manager storms out of the room]’ sort of way I think.

Filan told Contactmusic: “He’s fired us twice! He thought we were being arrogant little rock stars and said: ‘Look I can’t deal with you’. Two years later the same sort of thing happened again – he just got a vibe that we were a little bit too big for our boots. We were all genuinely devastated. I was crying”.
