These Musicians Were Sued By Their Own Fans

Our favorite musicians are usually pretty well off financially, so it’s not surprising that “fans” try to take advantage of them any way they can. But you have to be a certain type of petty to sue a beloved musician over a minor incident. While some of these lawsuits were deserving, others are downright trivial. From a broken neck at a Steve Aoki show, to PTSD following a Jonas Bros. concert (yes, really), find out why fans sued these famous musicians. You won’t believe who took Jon Bon Jovi to court for $400 billion.

The All-American Rejects Monster Incident

At the Vans Warped Tour in 2010, frontman of The All-American Rejects Tyson Ritter was throwing Monster energy drinks into the crowd during the band’s performance. However, concert-goer Nina Kooroshfar was hit in the head by one of the flying beverages, which landed her in the E.R. with 12 stitches. Ouch!

Despite being given backstage passes from the band, Kooroshfar took legal action against Ritter, Monster Beverage Co., and Live Nation, asking for unspecified general and punitive damages for negligence and assault and battery. No word on whether or not she won the suit, but it sounds like she just needs to “move along,” if you know what we mean.
