Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan is suing bosses of a music distribution company over his royalty payments.

The star has taken legal action against executives at Rocket Science Inc, claiming they have failed to hand over the profits from his songs since 2011.

In the legal documents, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Corgan alleges his revenues have been mishandled and is suing for breach of contract. He is demanding an audit to determine how much money he is owed.
