Chris Daughtry - Chris Daughtry 'Very Hurt' By Lawsuit

Rocker Chris Daughtry has responded to a new royalties lawsuit from his ex-bandmates, insisting he is "very hurt" by the "false accusations".
The former American Idol finalist has been accused of defrauding bassist Ryan Andrews, drummer Scott Crawford and guitarist Mark Perry out of royalties from four songs.
The musicians, who played with Daughtry in the band Absent Element, claim they wrote the tracks' music and lyrics with the singer.
The trio cites "constructive fraud, breaches of fiduciary duty, unfair trade practices and other deceptive and wrongful conduct" on Daughtry's part, according to the suit filed on Thursday (05Apr12) and obtained by North Carolina's News & Record.
However, Daughtry has hit back at the allegations in a brief statement on his website, which reads, "I am very hurt by these false accusations. The songs listed in this lawsuit were written solely by me and no one else and at this time, I have no further comment."
