According to TMZ, Korn’s founding drummer David Silveria, who left in 2006, is now suing the band. It seems that since he was never officially “out” of the band, he believes he’s still entitled to a share of the band’s income.
According to the docs … Silveria says his leave in 2006 was merely a hiatus, and he never gave up his ownership interest in KoRn. So, even though he wasn’t jamming with ’em, he was still sharing the profits.
Silveria says when he was ready for his triumphant return in 2013, the other KoRn members — Jonathan Davis, James Shaffer, Brian Welch, and Reggie Arvizu — told him to kick rocks.
Silveria was in the band back when they were called L.A.P.D., but he went on a “temporary hiatus,” in December of 2006 saying, “I just need a break for right now.” He played drums on the first seven Korn album, his last being 2005s See You on the Other Side.
