Former East 17 pop star Brian Harvey filmed himself being ejected him from a benefits office, while swearing and shouting at staff.
The singer, 45, yelled ‘f***ing d***head with you f***ing attitudes’ at one employee during the confrontation in Walthamstow, the area of London that inspired the name of his chart-topping band.
Posting the video onto his YouTube channel last week, the singer claimed he was now facing homelessness after his benefits were reviewed.

Sporting a thick beard and baseball cap, Harvey told the camera he was ‘loaded up with evidence’ to overturn the decision.
He said: ‘It’s come to the point of enough now, enough of this. So I’ve come down here, I’m going in there and I ain’t taking no for an answer.
‘I’m fed up with being bullied, so stay tuned and we’ll see how this goes.’
But just minutes later, the singer is seen in the midst of rising tension with staff, as a security guard asks him to leave.
‘I’m not making threats, you lot are bullies,’ he retorts, as he’s seen leaving the building.
‘You wouldn’t have a job if it weren’t for me, paying tax on 20 million records, f*** you.’

The fallen pop star, who has spoken openly about living with depression, told the Sunday Mirror he was left feeling like he was ‘fighting the world’ and that his life was ‘in danger’.
He said: ‘They know, when people get that letter through the door, what it does to people with mental health problems.
‘The benefits need to start listening to the people, I understand there are spongers in the system, but I shouldn’t be treated like this.’
His latest run-in with trouble comes just months after he posted another video showing the moment he was arrested outside his north London home for ‘malicious communication.’
The two minute video, titled ‘Me Arrested’ shows Harvey yelling: ‘These cuffs are tight man’.

As the officer loosens them he says: ‘They’re cutting to the bone.’
The arrest, on March 21, came after he posted a troubling livestream video, in which he described his financial troubles and asked for a meeting with Prime Minister Theresa May.
Scotland Yard said at the time that they were called to an address in Walthamstow, east London, following reports a man was threatening to harm himself.
It sparked concern for his welfare and police attended the scene.
Upon arriving, officers performed a welfare check and a man in his 40s was arrested ‘on suspicion of malicious communications’ police said. He did not suffer any injuries.
Last year the former popstar sparked more concern by posting a video in which he claimed he had not left the house in five years.
In the frantic 18-minute-video, the agitated singer said he is ‘going to war’ against the people who have made him live like a prisoner in his home.
Harvey shot to fame in the 1990s as the lead singer of pop band East 17, later renamed E-17.

The boy band sold millions of records and scored several top 10 hits, including 1994 Christmas number one Stay Another Day.
The former star, 43, was sacked from East 17 in 1997 over comments he made about ecstasy in the wake of the death of Leah Betts, who died after taking a pill during her 18th birthday party.
In 2005, Harvey was run over by his own car in a bizarre accident after he claimed he ate three giant baked potatoes smothered in tuna mayonnaise and cheese.

He claimed he fell under the car as he lent out of the driver’s door to be sick because he had eaten so much – and the Mercedes rolled over him.
Harvey fractured his pelvis in seven places, broke his ribs and punctured his lungs.
He lay unconscious for three weeks and had to endure 12 hours of surgery as doctors battled to rebuild his shattered frame.
Harvey also appeared on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2004, but stormed off the show after a row with Janet Street-Porter.
