Former Swedish House Mafia member and EDM superstar, Steve Angello, is in a legal battle due to allegations of fraud. Angello has been sued for about 116 million [SEK] ($1.3 million) by a music colleague and former business partner. The charges against Angello include “fraud, broken business contract and crimes against property management.”
The former colleague is suing Angello for having been promised a monthly salary as well as a “five percent stake in a company.”
Angello doesn’t seem to be concerned by the lawsuit; the DJ spoke to Expressen stating the lawsuit “lacks grounds and is a lot of fabrications and lies…I do not think about this. Had there been something serious, I [would have] been familiar with it. But I do not care. There are no grounds.”
Angello continued by stating he and his team have filled counterclaims, however there are no reports out to claim this is true.
The trial will be litigated in the Los Angeles Court system.
