Kings Of Leon deny reports they've sacked Caleb Followill
Nathan Followill dismisses US magazine reports as 'hilarious'
According to US gossip title Star Magazine, Matthew and Jared Followill had "started to resent Caleb's antics as he was late to rehearsals, neglectful of band meeting and displaying diva traits." The article goes on to say that the band have hatched a plan, which will see "Jared and Matthew take over lead vocals."
However, drummer Nathan Followill has denied this. He wrote on his Twitter account Twitter.com/doctorfollowill:
BREAKING NEWS: Kings Of Leon has kicked Caleb out and Jared and Matt will be taking over lead vocals. Where do people come up with this shit? Hilarious.
The Tennessee stadium rockers have endured a difficult few weeks. They were forced to shelve their US tour after Caleb Followill stormed offstage and was deemed too ill and exhausted to tour. The cancellation is reportedly set to cost their insurers over $15 million (£9.14 million).
