Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil is being sued by lawyers representing the singer in his assault lawsuit, claiming he owes them nearly $190,000 in legal fees and is refusing to pay their invoices. Neil's lawyers at Howard & Howard Attorneys, PLLC filed court documents last Thursday (December 6th) in the matter, requesting that the judge allow them to hit Neil with a lien for the money.

Despite Neil's alleged failure to pay his attorneys, they say they have continued to work on the lawsuit, which was filed back in 2016 by a woman who said Neil attacked her outside the Aria hotel in Las Vegas. Neil's alleged assault resulted in "substantial medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and emotional distress," according to the lawsuit. She was seeking $75,000 in compensatory damages in addition to $75,000 in punitive damages and legal fees.

Neil has demanded the case be thrown out, denying the allegations of wrongdoing and accusing the woman of only seeking publicity.

In other Crue news, bassist Nikki Sixx has revealed that he will shoot a video with Sixx: A.M. in two weeks. The band hasn't released any new music in two years and has been on hiatus since 2017. But Sixx recently hinted at fresh material from Sixx: A.M., which initially began as a musical companion piece to his memoir The Heroin Diaries and evolved into a full-time group.

Sixx also said that he and drummer Tommy Lee spent the weekend with producer Bob Rock mixing the four new songs Motley Crue has recorded for the film adaptation of the band's 2001 autobiography, The Dirt. The movie will premiere on Netflix in March.
