Rain Man Sues Jahan & Yasmine Of Krewella For Getting Kicked Out – After Getting Sober

Following a morning of speculation by sites like TMZ, Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Rain Man is suing Krewella for forcing him out of the group. After he left rehab.

Krewella’s music is sweeping the dance clubs from Hollywood to Hong Kong. But their success has come with such stress that the plaintiff has checked himself into rehab. He is now sober. Rather than supporting him, the sister defendants — advised by aggressive and greedy handlers — have pounced on what they see as an opportunity to remove the plaintiff from the group and keep more of the money for themselves, in the process breaching their oral contracts, ignoring their fiduciary duties and violating other substantial rights of the plaintiff.

The lawsuit claims that after Trindl’s stay at rehab Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf, along with Jake Udell, conspired to remove Kris (Rain Man) from the group entirely. ““At this time, Udell, the Yousaf sisters and others conspired to remove Kris from the group altogether. Now that the band was successful, they figured they could always hire outside people to write and produce music for far less money than it would cost to continue splitting their income equally with Kris, as they have done (one-third to each member).”

The lawsuit is for $5 million dollars. It’s a pretty grim story. Boyfriend-girlfriend duo bring in girlfriend’s sister, create Chicago EDM group, skyrocket to stardom, become addicts and sex symbols, and kick arguably the only one creating music to the curb. If entirely true, it seems that Krewella’s “Never Gonna Die, Party All Night” lifestyle comes at a high cost. The worst part is, even if Rain Man wins, we doubt many of Krewella’s fans will ever know or care.

Take a look at the whole legal filing below, and read the original Hollywood Reporter story for even more info.
