The Wanted Reveal: 'We Are Skint'
They are envious of boyband rivals 1D, who are said to be worth £100m...
The Wanted have revealed that despite all their US success, they are "skint."
Jay McGuiness told the tabloid: "We met our accountant the other day. It was so depressing. It took him two hours to say: ‘Boys, you’re skint'."
Their hit single Glad You Came may have shifted three million copies in the US - just like 1D's track What Makes You Beautiful - but it was penned by three music industry insiders, meaning Max George and Co don't see any of the cash.
After being told that One Direction are still "worth millions", Max replied: "They are, we’re not.”
Parker said: "It is hardly Blur versus Oasis", with Max adding: "I don't think they have anything to be upset about, they are absolutely smashing it."
Tom then concluded: "They are the biggest band in the world."
