Mötley Crüe singer Vince Neil‘s former lawyers are suing the frontman over unpaid bills. Court documents revealed by The Blast, show that the law firm Howard & Howard have made a counterclaim to Neil’s original suit they have overbilled him for years as well as accusing the firm of taking advantage of the singer because of his celebrity status.
Howard & Howard are looking to collect $190,000 they claim Neil owes the firm for work done on a lawsuit from a fan that accused Neil of assaulting him.
Apparently, the firm had given Neil serious leeway with regards to the bill and had continued to represent him. The firm have also laughed off claims they overbilled and took advantage of his celebrity saying: “The fact is that because Neil was a celebrity, Howard & Howard bent its own rules regarding cutting off clients who refuse to pay their bills.”
The singer has also apparently racked up some serious debt because of unpaid invoices for the lawsuit that are now years overdue, and the firm is now asking the court to order Neil settle the bill.
The lawsuit in question stems back to 2016 when Vince Neil was sued by a woman named Kelly Guerrero. The woman claims she approached Neil for an autograph, and the singer flipped out and responded by grabbing her hair and dragging her to the ground. Guerrero sued Neil claiming she had severe injuries that included: neck pain, lower back pain, a fractured tailbone, and a hip injury. Guerrero is seeking in excess of $150,000.
That lawsuit is still ongoing.
