Slipknot drummer allegedly suing band over unfair compensation
Slipknot drummer Chris Fehn has allegedly filed suit against the remainder of the band.March 14, 2019
In the Blast’s report, Fehn claims that the rest of the band are not sharing profit fairly in the merchandise and touring aspects. After finding several separate companies that are reportedly receiving Slipknot-related profits, Fehn decided to file suit when he noticed that he was not being compensated monetarily across the multiple companies.
According to the Blast, Fehn did not have knowledge of more than one single company taking care of the profits from touring and merch. Originally, Fehn thought one company would handle all of the profits and then properly disperse the money among the band. That said, Fehn says that he hasn’t seen any of the money that has reportedly been coming in through the other alleged companies.
In the report, Fehn points the finger toward frontman Corey Taylor and fellow drummer Clown for the suspicious business relations.
To compensate for the alleged damages, Fehn wishes to see Slipknot undergo full forensic accounting on all of their assets and companies.
However, this only appears to be the start of all of what may unfold. In fact, Taylor recently took to Twitter to put out a drama-inducing tweet, in which many people think is related to the newfound beef with Fehn.
“You’re gonna read a lot of bullshit today,” Taylor says in the tweet. “This is all I’ll say. JUST YOU WAIT TIL THE TRUTH COMES OUT. Long Live The Knot.”
You’re gonna read a lot of bullshit today. This is all I’ll say. JUST YOU WAIT TIL THE TRUTH COMES OUT.
Long Live The Knot.

That said, there have not been official statements made by any members of the band regarding a lawsuit. Additionally, Taylor’s tweet above could be interpreted as regarding the entire report in general, or the alleged lawsuit.
AP has reached out to Slipknot’s team for comment, but have not yet heard back.
