For a band who had a whopping great hit with a song called ‘I Owe You Nothing’, Bros certainly managed to rack up a few credit card bills in their time.
The 80s hitmakers, who announced their comeback last week, have revealed that their spectacular fall from grace left them with debts of an incredible half a million pounds. That’s a hell of a lot of bottles of Grolsch and leather jackets.
However, despite their huge debts, the brothers never declared themselves bankrupt.
“We never went bankrupt,” Luke Goss told The Sunday People. “We dusted ourselves off and got out of debt. We went through our recession just before everyone else did.
“People have said to me since, ‘Wow, you went through hell, it must’ve been so difficult.’ But what was hurtful was there was a certain amount of glee people felt about our pain.
“We were just going to do what good British men do, dust ourselves down and prove we can do it.”
That’s the spirit, chaps!
And dust themselves down is exactly what they did, with Luke managing to pay off all those maxed out credit cards by forging a Hollywood career in movies like Blade II and Hellboy II, and Matt heading our to Las Vegas to trott through an incredible 250 gigs a year.
Still, at least one things for sure: with next year’s European tour rumoured to be raking in a cool £10million for the brothers, their money problems are most definitely a thing of the past.
