Kings Of Leon Laugh Off Sacking Rumours
Apparently the band had fired their singer
The NME says that Kings Of Leon have dismissed reports that they have fired singer Caleb Followill over his "diva like" behaviour."
According to US gossip title Star Magazine, Matthew and Jared Followill had "started to resent Caleb's antics as he was late to rehearsals, neglectful of band meeting and displaying diva traits." The article goes on to say that the band have hatched a plan, which will see "Jared and Matthew take over lead vocals."
However, drummer Nathan Followill has denied this. He wrote on his Twitter account Twitter.com/doctorfollowill:
"BREAKING NEWS: Kings Of Leon has kicked Caleb out and Jared and Matt will be taking over lead vocals. Where do people come up with this shit? Hilarious."
The band have been in a little turmoil in recent weeks after they were forced to cancel more than 25 dates on their US tour due to Caleb's health problems. The cancellations are thought to have cost their insurers a little under £10m.
