Manowar Bassist Sued
Manowar bassist Joey Demaio is being sued by a photographer who claims she was imprisoned and coerced into writing a cheque for $25,000.
Yasha Young says she went to Germany to discuss collaborating with the band – only to end up a hotel room and threatened with being sued herself unless she handed over the money. Apparently, it’s all to do with unauthorised photos of Manowar appearing on a make-up artist’s website.
Young says she fled in fear – not for her safety, but at what a lawsuit might do to her financially.
Now she’s taken out a $5 million suit of her own in New York against Magic Circle Films, the music management company of which Demaio is president.
