breaking news

0227-tmz-scott-weilandStone Temple Pilots front man Scott Weiland says he had NO IDEA his band was planning to fire him today ... but according to Scott, it doesn't matter ... because he can't be fired from a group HE created.

Scott just released a statement in response to STP's press release this morning -- in which the band claims they "officially terminated" Weiland from the group.

Scott said, "I learned of my supposed 'termination' from Stone Temple Pilots this morning by reading about it in the press."

He added, "Not sure how I can be 'terminated' from a band that I founded, fronted, and co-wrote many of its biggest hits, but that’s something for the lawyers to figure out."

Sh*t just got real.

LMFAO, this would be like Paul Stanley firing Gene Simmons from Kiss. Ain't gonna happen. Hell, Scott just let it go and go out on your own.

Watch this will somehow turn into a mistake, and they will announce another reunion tour and play at coachella.

Yup. That's about right. I know of a guy who got voted out of his own band. The band decided to get another name (the name was his too), & since, has disappeared off the face of the earth. He practically lost his mind. This is why i trust no one. There are NO friends in this business. Can't wait to see what happens.
