Enlarge Fehn alleges Corey Taylor, Shawn "Clown" Crahan, and the band's business manager all took steps to potentially withhold money owed to the group's other members.

Slipknot/Chris Fehn Lawsuit: More Details Revealed


The lawsuit that Chris Fehn has brought his against his now-former bandmates in Slipknot has become available online, giving us greater insight into the cause of the rift between the percussionist and the rest of the group.

The suit names multiple Slipknot-related business entities as defendants, as well as the band’s business manager, Rob Shore, and two members of the band itself, Corey Taylor and Shawn “Clown” Crahan. This lines up with what was initially reported about the suit — that Fehn was distraught to learn about multiple Slipknot business entities of which he was never made aware, and that he was specifically accusing Taylor and Crahan of underhanded business dealings.

According to court documents, “Fehn reposed trust and confidence in the fidelity and integrity of Crahan and Taylor to operate the Slipknot general partnership for the mutual benefit of the partners, including Fehn.” Fehn alleges that Crahan, Taylor, and Shore betrayed that trust by setting up new Slipknot business entities with Fehn’s knowledge or consent, and that Shore and his firm “have acted in violation of their fiduciary duties owed to Fehn by favoring and enriching Crahan and Taylor at the expense and to the detriment of Fehn.”

Taylor, for his part, has already publicly denied the accusations.
