Looks like things have taken an ugly turn for the worst as 90’s rock band Stone Temple Pilots original members are in a bitter feud that’s resulted in former frontman Scott Weiland being sued.

According to a report by Billboard on Friday, Stone Temple Pilots a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles accusing Weiland of misusing the band’s name in order to help put more exposure on his solo work. They are requesting that a judge block Weiland from using the band’s name and playing their songs.

Also in the lawsuit, the band claims that due to Weiland’s constant tardiness and battles with drug addiction hit their financial earnings when he was start part of Stone Temple Pilots.The lawsuit also claims that despite being fired from the band in Feburary Weiland has made attempts to interfere with airplay of the band’s new single “Out of Time”. ThisĀ  stems from an incident where Weiland’s lawyer called LA radio station KROQ and told them they’d be infringing on Weiland’s rights if the station played the STP song “Out of Time” with new lead singer Chester Bennington from Linkin Park.

The band claims in the suit that they alone own the rights to the name Stone Temple Pilots, as well as all the group’s songs, copyrights and trademarks, citing agreements made in 1996 and 2010 that no former members can use the Stone Temple Pilots name. STP has asked the judge to stop Weiland from performing STP songs in his solo career, or even calling himself a former member of STP.

At the KROQ Weenie Roast last week, the band made their appearance with a new frontman, Chester Bennington. In an open letter to fans posted Friday on his website, Weiland wrote about learning of the new band. “To tell you the truth, it took me by surprise. And it hurt,” he wrote.

“But the band that played last weekend was not Stone Temple Pilots and it was wrong of them to present themselves as that. First of all they don’t have the legal right to call themselves STP because I’m still a member of the band. And more importantly, they don’t have the ethical right to call themselves Stone Temple Pilots because it’s misleading and dishonest to the millions of fans that have followed us for so many years.”
