Paramore In Legal Battle With Former Member

(TeamRock Radio) Paramore and former bassist Jeremy Davis have commenced a legal battle over his entitlement to a share of the band's income. Davis left last year in what was described as a "painful" split, with Hayley Williams and Taylor York saying they were "excited for what Jeremy's going to do next."

The Tennessean reports that Davis last week filed a lawsuit against his former colleagues and Williams' company Varoom Whoa after he was refused access to financial records.

She argues that he was an employee rather than a partner in the business, while he says he's entitled to a share of royalties, tour revenue and other income.

Davis' lawsuit says that Paramore were founded as a partnership between him and Williams, and York was an employee until becoming a partner in 2008. The bassist says he took part in decision-making over the business, adding: "Thereafter, and at all times relevant hereto, Davis, Williams and York shared equally in all net profits generated by the partnership."
