Duran Duran are suing their own fanclub because, well, it makes a great headline so why not?

Technically they are suing Chicago-based WorldWide Fan Clubs Inc, which entered into a deal to run a fan club for the British band back in 2010. Under the contract WorldWide would take membership fees, service fans, sell merch and keep accurate accounts.

And crucially pay Duran Duran 75% of any profits. According to a lawsuit filed in the Cook County Circuit Court and reported on by the Chicago Sun-Times, the band claim that accurate accounts were not infact provided and that they haven’t been paid all they are due either.

According to the Sun-Times the band is seeking $40,000 in damages. WorldWide Fan Clubs is yet to comment.
