The musical duo ‘LMFAO’ has been hit with a $7 million-dollar breach of contract lawsuit by their former management team. According to TMZ, ‘LMFAO’ member Stefan Kendal Gordy, known as DJ RedFoo, was severed with the lawsuit papers just prior to their Thursday night guest performance on the ‘American Idol’ stage in Los Angeles.

Reportedly, the management company Rpm Grp. claims that they signed both Stefan and his nephew, and fellow ‘LMFAO’ member, Skyler Austen Gordy, to a contract in 2008. They claim that they were instrumental in making the group a hit success and then when they made it big were “shown the door.”

Also Rpm is accusing ‘LMFAO’ of tortious interference and accounting, saying that they tried to poach the company’s employees to be their new managers and pay them a salary rather than give Rpm a commission check.

According to TMZ RedFoo was a amused by being served the papers and laughed while taking a picture with the person who served him.

LMFAO has seen great success in the last year or so with the release of two singles, ‘Party Rock Anthem’, and ‘Sexy and I Know It’. It is a common misconception that the name of the band is meant for a slang texting term ‘Laughing My F***ing A** Off’, but they maintain it actually stands for, ‘Loving My Friends and Others.’
