According to an article that has been published on The Tennessean, pop-rock superstars Paramore and now former bassist Jeremy Davis – who seemingly left the group on amicable terms in December 2015 – are undergoing a legal dispute over whether Davis was an employee for the band, or a partner in the underlying business entitled to a share of royalties and touring revenue. Allegedly, Davis wishes to examine financial documents, which he was not provided.
According to the report, Varoom Whoa – the business entity that operates Paramore – preemptively sued Davis in Nashville Chancery Court in February. According to the lawsuit, Varoom Whoa is fully owned by the band’s frontwoman Hayley Williams. Davis has then since filed a counterclaim on Friday naming Varoom Whoa, along with Williams and fellow band member Taylor York. The band’s business managers were also named as defendants.
