Report: Slipknot’s Chris Fehn suing band over financial dispute

Martin Philbey/RedfernsSlipknot percussionist Chris Fehn is reportedly suing the band over a payment dispute.

According to The Blast, Fehn is accusing his band mates of setting up separate business entities in various states in order to funnel money to themselves without paying the other members.

Prior to discovering these alleged businesses, Fehn was apparently told that all the profits from merchandise and touring had been pooled into one main company, which then distributed the money to each member.

The Blast reports that Fehn specifically mentions frontman Corey Taylor and percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan in his lawsuit.

In an apparent response to the report, Taylor tweeted Thursday, “You’re gonna read a lot of bull**** today. This is all I’ll say. JUST YOU WAIT TIL THE TRUTH COMES OUT. Long Live The Knot.”

Fehn joined Slipknot in 1998, and has played on each one of the band’s albums. A new, currently untitled album is due out August 9.
