Fortune is broke, homeless and back to living in his car -- just as he was doing before winning the gig on the reality TV series 'Rock Star: INXS.'

The singer told Entertainment Tonight Canada that he was fired by the band -- via handshake -- in a Hong Kong airport. "I found myself really alone because I had traveled with these guys for 23 months," he said without specifying exactly when he was let go.

The Canadian belter won the CBS show in 2005, replacing Michael Hutchence who was found dead in a Sydney hotel room in November 1997 with a coroner ruling he had committed suicide.
With Fortune, INXS released the album 'Switch' and went on a world tour in 2006 and 2007. The band's early hits include 'New Sensation' and 'Need You Tonight.'
He acquired a **** habit while with the band, but has since been drug free for two years. He doesn't say if the drugs played a role in him getting sacked. "From the street to the air back to the street again. It is only me."
An INXS flack told the Australian media that she could not comment on the matter.

J.D. Fortune was living out of his car when he won the 2005 reality TV series 'Rock Star:INXS.' Now, he's back to being homeless after getting unceremoniously canned by the 'New Sensation' rockers.
