Lmfao are facing a $7 million lawsuit from their former managers.
The stars, uncle and nephew Stefan 'Redfoo' Gordy and Skyler 'SkyBlu' Gordy, have been sued by bosses at personal management company RPM GRP, who claim the band signed a deal with them in 2008 but later ditched the contract and hired two of the firm's former employees to manage them instead.
The lawsuit, filed at Santa Monica Superior Court in California, accuses the duo of breach of contract, tortious interference and accounting.
The papers state, "LMFAO has thanked the managers who took them from '0 to 60' by throwing them under the tour bus (i.e. firing them). Instead of hiring new managers, LMFAO then poached two employees of the original managers, hiring them on a salary instead of paying a commission to the original managers."
Redfoo was served the legal papers in Los Angeles this week (beg16Apr12) as he was on his way to the set of TV show American Idol and he even posed for a picture with the woman who handed over the documents.
In the photograph, obtained by TMZ.com, the star is seen smiling and holding up the legal papers.
