Irish singer Shane Filan is embroiled in a legal fight over allegations his property company is $6.4 million in debt, according to a report.
The Westlife star and two family members are being pursued by chiefs at the Bank of Ireland in the Irish High Court over allegedly unpaid debts relating to Filan’s firm, Shafin Developments Ltd.

Filan applied for a legal agreement in London this week to pay back creditors over a period of time, reports The Sun.

A source tells the publication, “Shane was desperate to launch himself as a property tycoon when Westlife started to wind down.

“But it has backfired massively. The property company is saddled with millions of debt. It’s been disastrous timing for him to invest in property amid a global economic crisis. He’s in dire straits.”

Westlife’s farewell tour kicks off in London next month.
