“Bret was crying and totally distraught after he was fired,” a show insider tells Radar.

The Every Rose Has Its Thorn singer returned to the show as a triumphant past season winner — making it all the more shocking that he was first to the chopping block.

“Bret totally went into the show believing he was going to win again,” the source says. “He couldn’t believe it that he was let go so quickly. It was brutal to watch him freaking out the way he did.”

As previously reported, Trump had to decide between axing Bret or La Toya Jackson, and in the end he chose to let the aging rocker go.

“It was a mess when Bret was told the news and filming was done,” the source says. “He couldn’t stop crying and even the producers were trying to comfort him. No one expected him to have a meltdown like that.”

All-Stars Celebrity Apprentice airs Sundays on NBC at 9/8c.
