Brian, 45, told newspaper, the Mirror: “I’m being messed around seriously by the benefits.

"I can’t get anywhere after selling 22 million records, and the amount of tax I’ve paid.

“You’re bullies mate, you’re bullies. Who you talking to? You wouldn’t have a job if it wasn’t for me paying tax. F*** you, f*** the lot of you."

The ex-star reportedly said: “If they cut my benefits and I have to go back to gigging then if something happens to me then it will be their fault and it will be on their shoulders. They know my life’s in danger.”

Brian added: "I feel like I’m fighting the world.
