Mötley Crüe’s Vince Neil sues social media manager for locking him out of Facebook account

Kristy Sinsara is alleged to have sent unauthorised posts to promote her new book

Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil has filed a lawsuit against an Oregon woman after she locked him out of his own social media accounts.

As the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports, Neil filed the suit at Clark County District Court last Friday (March 13) against his social media manager Kristy Sinsara.

The complaint reads: “Sinsara maintains control over the accounts because she is using them to trade on Neil’s fame and celebrity as a means of promoting Sinsara and her work.”

The musician claims that he has fired Sinsara, but she refuses to give him the passwords to his Facebook or Twitter pages. Instead, he alleges that she’s using the platforms to promote her new book. Neil quotes an email from Sinsara in which she supposedly wrote that she would “pay myself for all of my hard work by using Vince’s account to promote [the book]”.

However, Sinsara has denied these claims, telling the Review-Journal that she has “absolute access to [Neil’s] Facebook” and that “the last time I posted something was with his approval”.

Alice Cooper recently offered to chop off Mötley Crüe’s heads to close their final tour.

Mötley Crüe are currently in the middle of an 18-month farewell tour that will mark the end of the group after 24 years. The tour will culminate with a New Year’s Eve show at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and, if Cooper has his way, the band’s deaths.

During an interview with Australian classic rock radio station Triple M, as reported by Ultimate Classic Rock, Cooper – who has been serving as an opening act – revealed he has offered to chop off the band’s heads as a finale.

“They finish up in the United States on New Year’s, and that’s their last gig,” said the 66-year-old singer, who has been known to include guillotines in his live shows. “I told them, ‘Why don’t you let me kill you onstage? That finishes everything.’ Four guillotines, floomp! Done!”
