Motley Crue singer Vince Neil is being accused of ripping off his lawyers by not paying them, but the iconic frontman is shooting back by claiming that he was ripped off with overcharging for years.
The payment is regarding a lawsuit where a woman named Kelly Guerrero sued Neil in 2016 for allegedly assaulting her after she asked for an autograph.
Guerrero accused Neil of grabbing her by the hair and dragging her to the ground, which led to actor Nicolas Cage trying to calm him down. The lawyers claim Neil wasn’t paying them, but they continued to represent him regardless.
The Blast reports, “Vince Neil is fighting back against his former lawyer’s demand for $190,000, with the rocker accusing his former counsel of overcharging him for years.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the Mötley Crüe singer is denying owing his former lawyers the amount and claims their billing was inflated.
He is in the middle of disputing the bill from the firm Howard & Howard Attorneys and their billing with the State Bar of Nevada.
Neil believes he was overbilled ‘for numerous legal services based upon his status as a celebrity. Many of the charges in Howard & Howard’s billing are questionable at best.’
He takes issue with a specific bill where he was charged $1,784.50 for 4.3 hours spent on writing a letter relating to the case.”
