Kings Of Leon’s Caleb and Nathan Followill ‘have tried to stab each other’

Documentary director says brothers have fought a few times

Kings Of Leon frontman Caleb Followill and his brother, drummer Nathan Followill, have tried to stab each other in the past, the director of a documentary on the band has revealed.

Stephen C Mitchell, who has put together the film, Talihina Sky: The Story Of Kings Of Leon, has said the brothers have physically fought with each other a number of times during the band’s career.

Speaking to Spinner, Mitchell said: “Those two [Caleb and Nathan] have notoriously gone at each other over the years. I mean broken shoulders, pulled hair, trying to stab each other. Those two are like twins almost. They’re so close but they’re too close, if that makes sense.”

Mitchell was responding to a question about a scene in the trailer for the documentary, which you can see by scrolling down and clicking below.

In the trailer someone off camera is seen saying to Caleb Followill: “We made you, you little piece of shit,” which Mitchell has revealed is his older brother Nathan.

The documentary is set to be screened this month at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York. It does not have an official release date as yet.
