Last week, news came out that Mick Mars is suing Mötley Crüe.

The guitarist claims the band is attempting to cut his profit percentage shares related to the band’s businesses, and he’s requesting to see financial books related to those businesses. He also made claims that Nikki Sixx, over the years, has been belittling him, insulting his ability to play guitar and saying he has cognitive issues.

Mars’ attorney Edwin F. McPherson and Mötley Crüe’s manager Allen Kovac have recently taken part in a new interview with Variety, with each sharing their takes on the overall conflict.

Kovac says the guitarist is coming out with this list of accusations “to gain leverage in a smear campaign on Motley. He’s attacked the band, and he’s done it in a slanderous way, with false accusations and misrepresenting the facts to the fans. Mick is not the victim. The victims are Motley Crue and the brand, which Mick is so prideful of.”

Kovac then goes on to add, “What’s upsetting to me is not Mick, but his representatives, who have guided Mick to say and do harmful things to the brand he cares about so much, Motley Crue. He has a degenerative disease and people are taking advantage of him. It’s called elder abuse.

“Mick’s representatives have no idea what they’ve created, but I’ve stopped the band from speaking about this, so they’re not gonna turn the fans against Mick. But I am going to make sure that people understand that Mick hasn’t been treated badly. In fact, he was treated better than anyone else in the band, and they carried him and they saved his life.”

This interview involving the manager and attorney then goes into much more detail regarding each of Mars’ accusations – such as the band’s 2022 Stadium Tour being on “tape,” whether or not Mars is considered a “shareholder” in Mötley Crüe’s businesses at this point, and more.
