According to The Mirror, Charlie called a meeting with James and Matt to rule out his participation in the reunion, making sure he was brought out of his third of the Busted name.
The tabloid adds that their meeting was "amicable", with Simpson deciding to focus on his solo career instead of rejoining Busted on stage.
A source told Mirror Online: "Charlie wishes the boys lots of luck but he wanted absolutely no involvement.
He is getting on with his solo career, he isn’t really even working with Fightstar - the band he created after leaving Busted - but didn’t feel it was fair not to be bought out of the Busted brand."
They added: “All three sat down amicably and worked out a figure that everyone was happy with. Charlie made it clear in no uncertain terms that that’s it for him and the boys now, it’s finished.”
McBusted's tour is due kick off next April in Glasgow, with a date at London's O2 arena slated for April 25.
