SANTA MONICA, CA (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Pop-dance group LMFAO has been slapped with lawsuit by a former manager to the tune of $7 million.
According to Courthouse News, personal management company RPMGRP claims that LMFAO signed a two-year deal with manager Rene McLean in 2008 but later fired McLean and poached two of his employees.
McLean has accused LMFAO of breach of contract, tortious interference and accounting.
"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," McLean's court filing read. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
