Scott Weiland’s Ex-Lawyers Are Suing Him for $50,000 in Unpaid Legal Fees
During Scott Weiland’s tumultuous split from Stone Temple Pilots back in 2013, the band sued their erstwhile frontman for allegedly sabotaging their tour at the time. Then, Weiland hit back with a countersuit. Now, the law firm Weiland enlisted for his STP legal battle has filed its own suit against the singer for unpaid fees.
According to TMZ, G&M Law is suing Weiland for $50,000 in unpaid legal fees. Weiland reportedly dropped the firm a year after filing his countersuit, and though G&M’s attorneys were cooperative during that transition, they claim Weiland never paid for the work they did on his case in 2013.
After Stone Temple Pilots parted ways with Weiland, the band recruited Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington and released their High Rise EP later that year. Weiland meanwhile dropped Blaster, a solo album with his backing band, the Wildabouts, in March of this year.
Around the time of Blaster's arrival, Weiland said he and his former Stone Temple Pilots bandmates had put their past turmoil behind them.
“I really don’t think about it that much,” Weiland told Ultimate Guitar earlier this year. “It’s like our legal suits we had going are way behind us now. They’re doing what they’re doing and I’m doing what I’m doing and I wish them luck.”
