Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine vs. Monster

The ink is barely dry on Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine's multi-billion dollar deal with Beats by Dre and Apple, but Dre and Jimmy's old business partner is calling foul. Monster CEO Noel Lee has hit Apple Inc.’s Beats Electronics, Dre, Jimmy and smart phone company HTC with a lawsuit claiming that Beats “fraudulently acquired” the Beats by Dr. Dre line of headphones through a “sham transaction” with HTC. 

According to The Wall Street Journal,  Lee’s 5 percent share in Beats would have been worth more than $100 million. The suit also claims that the defendants tried to downplay Monster's role in designing and engineering the Beats by Dr. Dre line.

As things get heated for the Aftermath boss and crew, let's take a look at more lawsuits music stars are involved in.
