After news of the lawsuit started making the rounds, Corey Taylor took to his Twitter account to write: “You’re gonna read a lot of bullsh*t today. This is all I’ll say. JUST YOU WAIT TIL THE TRUTH COMES OUT. Long Live The Knot.”
In his lawsuit, Fehn claims to have always been told that the money from merchandise and touring is funneled through one sole company that splits profits and pays the members of the band. However, Fehn claims he recently discovered that his bandmates have set up several other SLIPKNOT-affiliated business entities in different states that appear to be collecting money from the band.
He also says he was unaware of the separate companies, and claims to have never received a dime from them. He specifically accuses band leaders Shawn Crahan and Corey Taylor of shady business dealings.
