Nikki Sixx Seems Unfazed By First Lost Case To Mick Mars

Just recently, ex-Mötley Crüe guitarist Mick Mars celebrated a win in the initial phase of his legal battle against his former band. Yet, bass player Nikki Sixx appeared indifferent to the situation.

Choosing to relax, Sixx visited the Porsche Experience Center, sharing his experience on Instagram. He expressed gratitude to his instructor, Johnny Kanavas, and the center’s staff, Michele and Johnny, for an exhilarating day driving a GT3.

On the other side of things, on April 6, 2023, Mars took legal action to scrutinize the financial details of seven entities tied to Mötley Crüe. He alleged that the band aimed to cut his ties with these entities, potentially depriving him of his 25% ownership in the group.

Despite an offer of 5%, later upped to 7.5%, from the band’s ongoing tour earnings, Mars claimed that Sixx misled him about his guitar prowess. He also argued that he was the sole member who consistently played live during their 2022 tour.

Mötley Crüe’s lawyer, Sasha Frid, countered by saying Mars had chosen to leave the band, implying he was not entitled to further claims.

However, on January 16, a Los Angeles judge sided with Mars, stating the band should have earlier provided essential financial documents and agreements. The judge mandated that Mars be compensated for his legal costs, criticizing the band for delaying the disclosure of these documents.

While the band eventually released the records in December, the judge declared their procrastination as unjust, ordering them to cover Mars’ legal expenses. This win for Mars doesn’t resolve the primary disagreement about his expulsion from the band, which is set to be addressed in a private arbitration.
