Slipknot: Corey Taylor Says He’s Been “Wrongfully Accused of Stealing Money” from Chris Fehn
In what should come as a shock to absolutely no one, Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor has denied allegations, leveled against him in a lawsuit by now-former percussionist Chris Fehn, that he and other members of the band were cheating Fehn out of money he’s owed.
Taylor made the denial on Twitter, responding to a fan who responded to the news of Fehn’s ousting by calling Taylor “dickish.” Taylor replied:
“You think that’s dickish, try being wrongfully accused of stealing money from someone you cared about, and having a lot of your fans believe it.”
The PRP reports that in a second, since-deleted tweet, Taylor replied “Fuck I Would LOVE that” to a suggestion that they get Anders Colsefni back in the band. Colsefni, if you don’t know, was Taylor’s predecessor fronting Slipknot before they were signed; he also played percussion.
I think my suggestions were better, but whatevs.
You think that’s dickish, try being wrongfully accused of stealing money from someone you cared about, and having a lot of your fans believe it.
Good Morning, by the way.
