MÖTLEY CRÜE Dragged Into Lawsuit Between STEVEN TYLER's Former Manager And Current Lawyer
According to The Hollywood Reporter, MÖTLEY CRÜE has been dragged into a lawsuit between AEROSMITH singer Steven Tyler's former management company and his lawyer.
Kovac Media Group (d/b/a Tenth Street Entertainment), which served as Tyler's personal manager, sued attorney Dina LaPolt last October claiming she cost Tyler a $6 to $8 million pay raise in 2011 in his contract for another season with "American Idol". Kovac Media Group, run by Allen Kovac, is now claiming that LaPolt has attempted to retaliate against him for the lawsuit by "conspiring" to "set up a competing management company" to steal away MÖTLEY CRÜE, the "world-famous rock band" that Kovac has been representing for the past 15 years.
Earlier today (Monday, January 7), declarations by MÖTLEY CRÜE guitarist Mick Mars and drummer Tommy Lee were filed along with new court papers by LaPolt asking a Los Angeles Superior Court judge to strike Kovac's complaint based on California's anti-SLAPP statute.
