Sisters Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf, who perform as the EDM act Krewella, are repudiating the content of a lawsuit filed by former member Kris “Rain Man” Trindl.
Specifically, the DJ-singer-songwriters deny the claim that they fired the producer, let alone as a specific response to his newfound sobriety.
“Our team has advised that we don’t get into any specifics until we can properly respond to the false claims made—most importantly being that we did not kick Kris out of Krewella, he resigned,” wrote the duo in a Tumblr post.
Seeking damages of at least $5 million, Trindl filed a lawsuit against the group this week, alleging that the Yousaf sisters leveraged the manifestation of his new new sober lifestyle as “an opportunity to remove [him] from the group and keep more of the money for themselves.”
By doing so, they are “breaching their oral contracts, ignoring their fiduciary duties and violating other substantial rights of the plaintiff,” reads the suit.
“We ask our fans to please be patient and not come to any conclusions until we are able to respond to the lawsuit with the truth,” add Jahan and Yasmine, who also note that they are “in the studio working on the second album.”
