Black Eyed Peas sue former business manager, demand financial records

By
Members of the Black Eyes Peas have launched a lawsuit against their former financial advisor with claims that they were cheated out of over $3 million (£1.9 million).

Taboo, will.i.am and apl.de.ap say that advisor Sean M Larkin cost them the money when he did not file federal and state income tax returns for them between 2002 and 2009.

According to court documents obtained by the Los Angeles Times, a representative for the 'Let's Get It Started' singers writes that Larkin "falsely represented… on numerous occasions that he was taking care of everything and that they had nothing to worry about."

Larkin was finally fired after failing to handle astronomical tax bills in 2009, which the band later paid off themselves.

However the trio are now demanding that Larkin provide them with their financial records, in order for them to complete business returns for their touring company.

Fergie is not involved in the legal action, as she hires her own business manager to handle her financial affairs.

Black Eyed Peas announced a hiatus last year, with will.i.am serving as a coach on The Voice UK and gearing up for the release of a solo album titled #willpower.
