Last week, it was reported that Slipknot percussionist/vocalist Chris Fehn had filed a lawsuit against other members of the band regarding a financial dispute, resulting in his official removal from the band a few days later.
Now further details on the lawsuit have emerged online, specifically a full copy of the legal document that was submitted and filed to the Supreme Court Of The State Of New York on March 13th 2019.
You can access and read the copy of the lawsuit on the New York State Unified Court System website (here).
However, in a rough summation of the document, it details that Fehn accuses vocalist Corey Taylor and percussionist/vocalist M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan of allegedly operating several business entities without his knowledge and also against the benefit of both himself and the remaining members of the band.
According to the suit, both Crahan and Taylor are considered the leaders of Slipknot.
Some of the businesses detailed in the lawsuit that pertain to the case include:
The band’s business manager Rob Shore and his firm, Rob Shore & Associates, are also named in the document, accused of allegedly enriching Taylor and Crahan‘s alleged ventures at the cost of compensation to Fehn and apparently the partnership (aka the band).
It appears that Fehn is seeking an accounting of the entire business of the band since his inception with it, undoubtedly to establish damages and losses from potential income.
