Mick Mars, a co-founder of Motley Crue, is reportedly suing the band for allegedly throwing him out of the band and failing to financially pay him in a reasonable manner.
According to reports, the band is in the middle of their farewell tour without Mars, who stated he wouldn’t be on the road due to a crippling arthritic illness called ankylosing spondylitis.
The disease affects the spine and can cause severe pain and disability.

Mars alleges that he has been fully forced out of the band, despite the fact that the lawsuit allegedly said that he was prepared to record with the band and engage in limited performances, with tours being the sole constraint on his availability.
He claims that the band has reduced his portion of the income from the band from 25 percent to five percent, and he is requesting that Motley Crue release the band’s financial records so that he may be paid what he believes he is owed from the band.
