Westlife At War: Brian McFadden Fights Back Over Kian Egan’s ‘Boyzlife’ Comments

Oh blimey, it’s all kicking off for those blokes from Westlife, as former bandmates Kian Egan and Brian McFadden are now in the midst of a fully-fledged war or words.

Brian has had a pop at former Westlife pal Kian, after the 2013 King of the Jungle trashed Brian for going on a tour this year to talk about Westlife - which he’d quit just four years in.

For those of you not in the know, Brian and former Boyzone star Keith Duffy are touring the UK and Ireland later this year in something called ‘Boyzlife’ – where they’ll be chatting about their time in the band and presumably singing a few of their hits.

Whether or not there’ll be 14 galleons of super-slick hair gel brought in for all of this, we’re yet to be told.

Anyway, Brian’s now had his say on the whole drama, speaking on RTÉ’s Late Late Show: “I was actually in Westlife for more than four years but maths was never Kian’s thing in fairness. A lot of people probably did get confused because a lot of people probably thought we were doing a McBusted”.

Former Corrie star Keith Duffy then chipped in: “At the end of the day myself and Brian are after teaming up to do a show and talk about 20 years in the business. All the performances we do will be in a Hilton Hotel all across the UK and Ireland.”

“A saucer of milk for Kian please.”

Ooo-er. Where’s Louis Walsh when you need him?

It all comes after Kian told Dublin’s 98fm how Brian was being 'unfair’ on the fans for calling it 'Boyzlife’, and that the whole thing was pretty aggravating.

He said: "From the perspective of someone who spent 15 years in Westlife it was really aggravating. It was really unfair on the fans that everybody thought that this was what’s happening, you know that Westlife and Boyzone were getting together to do a tour.

"I was scratching my head when I first saw it. It’s a bit of an odd one – a member of Westlife who left the band after four years decides to use half the name for whatever it is that they’re doing.”

"Personally speaking, I thought it’s not the right way to do it and I think it was pretty unfair on the fans.
