According to The Blast, Slipknot percussionist Chris Fehn has filed a lawsuit against his bandmates over a payment dispute.

Chris Fehn, known for wearing a Pinocchio-style mask, has been performing with Slipknot since 1998 and participated in all the band’s albums. He claims to have always been told that the money from merchandise and touring is funnelled through one sole company that splits profits and pays the members of the band. However, Fehn claims he recently discovered that his bandmates have set up several other Slipknot affiliated business entities in different states that appear to be collecting money from the band.

Fehn says he was unaware of the separate companies, and claims to have never received a dime from them. He’s specifically calling out band leaders Shawn Crahan and Corey Taylor of the shady business dealings. Fehn wants a full forensic accounting done on Slipknot’s companies and assets, and to collect the damages and profits he believes he’s owed.

Meanwhile, Corey Taylor took to Twitter, stating: "You’re gonna read a lot of bullshit today. This is all I’ll say. JUST YOU WAIT TIL THE TRUTH COMES OUT. Long Live The Knot."
