During an interview with Grazia magazine (via NME), Haim shared the reason why they fired one of their agents.

According to the sisters, they received 10 times less the pay than an undisclosed male artist for a festival show.

“We had been told that our fee was very low because you played at the festival in the hope you’d get played on the radio,” Danielle Haim explained.

“We didn’t think twice about it, but we later found out that someone was getting paid 10 times more than us. And because of that we fired our agent,” Danielle continued.

Alana Haim also pointed out how unacceptable the situation was.
