Pop party rock duo LMFAO is facing a lawsuit to the tune of $7 million dollars from their former managers.
Stefan ‘Redfoo’ Gordy and Skyler ‘SkyBlu’ Gordy, the uncle and nephew duo famous for their party tracks have been sued by bosses at personal management company RPM GRP, who are claiming that the band signed a deal with them in 2008, only to ditch the contract and hire two of the firm’s former employees to manage them instead.
In thhe lawsuit, filed at Santa Monica Superior Court in California, RPM GRP accuses the guys of breach of contract, tortuous interference and accounting.
The legal papers read, “LMFAO has thanked the managers who took them from ‘0 to 60’ by throwing them under the tour bus (i.e. firing them). Instead of hiring new managers, LMFAO then poached two employees of the original managers, hiring them on a salary instead of paying a commission to the original managers.”
The duo was served with the legal documents outside of a TV studio in Los Angeles on Thursday before an appearance on American Idol.
