Ghost’s Papa Emeritus (Tobias Forge) & Ex-Members Considering Settlement Over Legal Dispute

Ghost vocalist Papa Emeritus (aka Tobias Forge) and four former members of the group look to be reaching a possible settlement. Their legal representatives were due to meet in Linkoping, Sweden court yesterday, to begin to discuss the possibility of resolving their legal dispute.

Aforementioned dispute was brought against Tobias Forge by four ex-musicians from the outfit —Simon Söderberg (Alpha), Mauro Rubino (Air), Henrik Palm (Ether) and Martin Hjertstedt (Earth)— and saw them seeking to get their hands on the band’s accounting from 2011 to the end of 2016. The four claim they were underpaid for their work with the band and also claim a partnership was in place to distribute proceeds from the band.

Tobias Forge himself previously disputed all claims and the existence of such a partnership. He also went on to allege that the above musicians were essentially "musicians for hire" with himself being the mainman of the band.
