Heirs of late KISS drummer denounce lawsuit filed against KISS band members

Estate of Denial® readers certainly know (with many having experienced) how unwelcome third parties can insert themselves into estate issues. Loudwire.com reports that’s what is happening with regard to the estate of the late KISS drummer Eric Carr.

From Loudwire:

Yesterday (March 11), we reported that the heirs to late KISS drummer Eric Carr‘s estate had filed a lawsuit against KISS for “untold payments,” according to an article in the New York Post. The supposed heirs were originally labelled as members of Carr’s family, but according to an attorney representing the family, the lawsuit was filed by “a non-related third party.”

KISS members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons have been targeted by the party which filed the suit, demanding $4,000 from a 1989 receipt sent to Carr from KISS Co. along with between a 5 and 50 percent cut on songs ‘Breakout,’ ‘Carr Jam 1981,’ ‘Carr Jam 1991′ and ‘Little Caesar,’ all of which Carr composed for KISS.

“It came to our attention through a variety of different media outlets that a legal proceeding was filed against the band KISS purporting to be on behalf of the ‘The Estate of Eric Carr’ and the ‘late KISS drummer’s heirs,’” reads an official statement released to Blabbermouth from Carr family attorney Mark Abbattista. “This proceeding was filed by a non-related third party without any knowledge, authorization or consent of anyone in the Carr family. The filing party’s attorney has been contacted and ordered to cease and desist from any further statements, actions or allusions purporting to be on behalf of, or in any way relating, directly or indirectly, to Eric Carr and/or the Carr family.”
