Lawsuit: Jeremy Davis (right) is suing former band mates Hayley Williams (center) and Taylor York (left) for breach of contract and fraud over claims he never got his share of royalties or credit for co-authored songs He says he contributed to all 17 songs on the album and takes credit for the overall 'funk style' of the tracks - especially their biggest hit song Ain't It Fun that reached number one on Billboard charts, sold more than 2 million copies and won a Grammy for Best Rock Song in 2015.
The lawsuit claims: '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 also says Davis has never been properly compensated for his co-authorship of the music and as a result he 'suffered substantial monetary damages as a result of Defendants' unlawful conduct, including, but not limited to, being excluded from participating in income arising from royalties, licensing, and other monies generated from the musical compositions and sound recordings embodied on the album Paramore.'The band posted a message on Facebook to fans that reads in part: 'We've written and re-written this countless times and there's just not a good way to put it...
