Simon Webbe is the latest member of Blue to run into money troubles.
Simon Webbe, a member of the former British boy-band Blue, has been declared bankrupt just weeks after his band-mate Duncan James also ran into financial problems and a couple of months after Antony Costa was effectively left homeless.
The 35-year-old musician filed papers at London's High Court on September 25 after running into financial problems earlier this year, according to Mail Online.
