Duran Duran are suing their fan club for £23,500, according to reports from Consequence Of Sound.
The '80s pop group have filed a lawsuit against Chicago-based company Worldwide Fan Clubs claiming they have not met several payments they were contractually obliged to make. The band is seeking around £23,500 ($40,000) in compensation from the company.
According to the lawsuit, Duran Duran and Worldwide Fan Clubs entered into business together in 2010, with it agreed that WFC would create and then manage the band's fan club. They are responsible for sales and inventory of the group's merchandise, collecting membership fees and maintaining records of their accounts. Duran Duran are said to receive 75 per cent of all profits but their lawyer says the company is yet to make some of these payments and has failed to keep accurate financial records.
