Chris Daughtry Sued, The ex-bandmates claim that they were not paid royalties for four songs they wrote before Daughtry appeared on ‘Idol.’
Former American Idol contestant Chris Daughtry, who went on to score several hits with his band, Daughtry, is being sued by three former bandmates. They allege that they have not been paid royalties for songs that they wrote before Daughtry reached fame. Daughtry has issued a statement, claiming that their claims are false.

E! News reports that bassist Ryan Andrews, drummer Scott Crawford and guitarist Mark Perry claim that the four of them wrote four songs together before Daughtry appeared on Idol. The three ex-bandmates claim that Daughtry has not paid them royalties for the songs.

According to The Greensboro (North Carolina) News-Record, the suit was filed on Thursday in Guilford County Superior Court. Daughtry, a North Carolina native, lives in the town of Oak Ridge.

The 32-year-old singer issued a simple statement on his website, claiming that the allegations are completely untrue. “I am very hurt by these false accusations,” he writes. “The songs listed in this lawsuit were written solely by me and no one else and at this time, I have no further comment.”
