London: Former Westlife band mates Kian Egan and Nicky Byrne`s friendship hit rock bottom over different financial payouts, according to reports.

Egan, who recently bagged 100,000 pounds to appear on the ITV series `I`m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here`, split from the band in 2011 and have had arguments over public appearances, the Daily Star reported.

Sources have revealed that Byrne, 35, who received just 25,000 pounds for BBC`s Strictly Come Dancing, has a lot of bad blood with his 33-year-old former band mate over their careers.

Sources said that Byrne was angry and hurt by the difference in their payouts, as it created an unhealthy competition among them, and wonders why Egan is worth more than him.
