Jealous and bulls****er: Ronan Keating reveals the REAL reason for years-long feud with ex-manager Louis Walsh


Ronan Keating has clapped back at his former manager and current Celebrity Big Brother housemate Louis Walsh, branding him a ‘jealous bulls****er’ in a foul-mouthed rant after he said what he said …

It was 71-year-old Louis Walsh that reignited his feud with Boyzone star Ronan Keating in a series of vicious and emotional attacks when he described him (Ronan) as a ‘p***k’ in front of millions of viewers on the ITV reality show. 

Why Ronan Keating Sacked Louis Walsh?

Ronan, the former Boyzone frontman, has lifted the lid on why he sacked the music manger when his solo career rocketed after leaving the Irish boyband, the 47-year-old can be heard in audio obtained by The Sun.

In the recording, from the height of their feud in 2006, Ronan can be heard fuming to biographer Rob McGibbon how Louis had ‘really hurt’ him.

Saying: ‘I’ve no respect for Louis because he has none for me. He was very jealous of me.

‘I had to sack him because he wouldn’t manage me. He’s a very selfish character. It’s bullsh** man. He’s a bullsh***er.’

‘He hasn’t had a hit record since I left’, Louis Mocked Ronan

Last week the Celebrity Big Brother housemates were treated to some music during the evening and Ronan’s solo single Life Is A Rollercoaster started playing.

‘Great song,’ the former X Factor said before leaning over to Sharon Osbourne and adding: ‘He was such a p***k.’

He then said: ‘Everybody thinks he’s a lovely guy, do you know what I mean?’

As the song continued to play, Louis criticised Ronan’s career, saying: ‘He hasn’t had a hit record since I left. He sacked me.’

Louis has taken numerous swipes at Ronan over the years, including previously calling him ‘talentless and spoiled’.

Good old days together

In an interview with Q Magazine in 2012, he said: ‘His head got turned by having nice hotels and chauffeur-driven cars, and he thought he could write songs. 

‘If you’re Ronan Keating, who was working in a shoe shop when I discovered him, but end [up] thinking you’re George Michael, then you need to be stopped.’

Ronan has fired back on occasion and previously said on Magic FM that he didn’t want to work with someone who didn’t respect him.

He said: ‘[Louis] was very important to me as a mentor and I’m grateful for the opportunities he gave me, because I wouldn’t be here without them. 

‘But there’s only so much you can give back and be so grateful, and for that not to be appreciated or respected.’
