Can you confirm, if this is true, then what was the outcome of the lawsuit?

Its interesting that the FM counsel have made a public statement today, saying they have yet to see this legal complaint even though it is in the press?

The stories were planted. Cui bono?

Maybe it's time for Fleetwood Mac The Opera.

Capital "P" Partners indicates they have legal agreements wherein certain parties are named as Partners with defined benefits assigned to being a Partner.

Fleetwood Mac Partnership, capitalized, would be the name of the agreement drafted by all the concerned Partners and their legal and management teams in which who gets what is clearly laid out and binding.

As others have noted, this is BIG business, and this is not just a group of friends traveling around having fun together. It's a corporation, and each of them unto themselves is a corporation of whatever size, with employees and benefits and such (for example, you can bet Karen gets a salary and health benefits and probably contributions to a retirement plan as part of her employment package with Welsh Witch Incorporated (or whatever Stevie's biz division is called). And not just Karen, but whoever else works full time for her.).

This could get beyond ugly.

It also raises the question of how the contracts with Neil and Mike are drafted. Are they Partners too? That would dilute income. Dirty, dirty laundry about to get washed.
But Lindsey's not about money! He's got integrity! Otherwise yeah.

he wants the band to make new music, big money or not. he surely doesn't make money off his solo tours.

but if they're gonna screw him, he's apparently decided to hit back where he knows it matters most to them.

karma.

I wouldn't assume anything when it comes to that guy. I do see that FM's tour is Live Nation (which is Irving or at least used to be) and Lindsey is playing AEG venues on his tour. Plus his voice isn't any higher.

You DO realize that's he hurt right???? The fact that you have NO sympathy for him and all the sympathy in the world for the others (who didn't have the decency to call him back) tells me everything I need to know about you.

Not a surprise. He is talking to RS and leaking news of the lawsuit to undermine the FM tour and Stevie's RRHOF bid.

So Lindsey's supposed to let $14 million walk out the door even though he signed a contract and was ready to fulfill it? Come on, get real!

I think we have a winner. If FM77 is correct and they usually are the lawsuit is settled then this is a smear campaign and not a counterattack by Azoff at all. Time for the opera!

But he doesn't care about money! Only greedy Mick and horrible, shallow $tevie! Lindsey is Mother Theresa and sometimes Jesus with a paint brush all rolled into one!
