Previously, Nicky has spoken out candidly about the fortune of Westlife members.

He told the Irish Independent none of them are “absolutely minted”.

He added: “We have all lost money. We were all very foolish with money in the early days, we all bought cars and watches – the silly things.

“I don’t think any of us were lucky.”

“We did very well out of Westlife but everybody lives and spends,” he said.

“In the early days we earned great money, and in the latter days it was all gone.”

Shane Filan net worth

Shane Filan amassed vast wealth as part of the Westlife boyband sensation but lost it all when – like many others – he piled into the Irish property boom.

Shane was declared bankrupt in 2012 after his company, Shafin Developments, went bust after borrowing from Bank of Ireland and Ulster Bank.

It was reported that his debts reached £18million and had only a few thousand pounds left in the bank.

So, what’s his current net worth?

According to TheRichest.com, the Irish singer has an estimated net worth of $3million (about £2.2million).

So, who is the richest Westlife member?
