Paramore's Hayley Williams Sued By Band's Former Bassist


Former Paramore bassist Jeremy Davis has sued fronter Hayley Williams over royalties, while accusing her of lying about who wrote the band's songs. The lawsuit alleges breach of contract and fraud and names Paramore guitarist Taylor York as well as Williams.

According to the filing, Davis reached an agreement with Williams and York to share writing credits on songs written for their 2013 self-titled album.

"Plaintiff is not listed as a co-author of any musical compositions embodied on the album Paramore, with the exception of a partial, one-minute-ninety-second interlude entitled 'Interlude: Holiday,' which is only available as part of the liner notes included with a purchase of the entire Paramore album, but not individually purchased singles," the suit reads.

Davis left the band in December 2015.

"Jeremy is no longer going to be in the band with us. To be honest, this has been really painful," Paramore wrote on their Facebook page at the time.

Founding members and brothers Zac Farro and Josh Farro left the group in 2010.
