In some unexpected news, Slipknot percussionist Chris Fehn is suing the band over a money dispute relating to merchandise. The Blast, claims Fehn feels that he hasn’t been compensated fairly over the years and is calling out specifically frontman Corey Taylor and fellow percussionist Shawn Crahan.

He 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.

Fehn is now requesting an investigation of Slipknot’s accounts and seeks rightful compensation. Taylor has quickly responded via Twitter for everyone to await the truth.

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.

Slipknot is currently working on their sixth studio album and are embarking on a massive tour with Gojira, Behemoth and Volbeat.
