Busted Star's 'Distant' Attitude Behind Break-Up

BUSTED star Charlie Simpson's "distant" approach to the band has been blamed for their split last week (14JAN05).

The CRASHED THE WEDDING trio suffered months of setbacks triggered by Simpson's alleged reluctance to bond with group members James Bourne and MATT JAY and his desire to concentrate on rock side-project Fightstar.

A source says, "He never wanted to be dressed by management or told what to do. At first he loved touring, but that wore off and he felt like an idiot while James and Matt were happy to act the fool for younger fans.

"At their last Wembley gig, Charlie couldn't have been more distant. He only talked to his Fightstar friends who were backstage."
