From Ultimate Guitar:
The rock and metal online world went ablaze yesterday, April 6, with the explosive news that longtime Mötley Crüe guitarist Mick Mars filed a lawsuit against the band.
In the suit, Mars claimed that he was pushed out of the line-up and is now demanding his share of the group’s profits, adding that bassist Nikki Sixx was “gaslighting” him into believing that his guitar chops were sub-par and that he was suffering from cognitive dysfunction.
Mötley Crüe was quick to issue a counter-statement of their own, questioning Mars’ ability to perform, as the guitarist was allegedly forgetting chords and songs to play, and claiming that Mars previously stepped out of his own accord.
Now, Sixx took to social media to share his thoughts on the subject, with a new tweet saying:
“Sad day for us and we don’t deserve this considering how many years we’ve been propping him up-We still wish him the best and hope he finds lawyers and managers who aren’t damaging him. We love you Mick”
