Despite claims BRYAN McFADDEN will rejoin Westlife next month (MAY04) for a one off gig, the band are reportedly planning to re-record their hits so the singer will stop receiving royalties.

McFadden left the Irish pop band last month (MAR04), and the remaining four members are apparently so upset at his move, they are planning to re-record songs to be used on their second Greatest Hits volume - due for release later this year (04) - to maximise their own royalties, according to Britain's NOW magazine.

However, according to a source close to McFadden, he is planning to join the band to sing their hit UNBREAKABLE at the end of their final date in Dublin next month (21MAY04).
