The Stone Temple Pilots have fired singer Scott Weiland.
In a one-sentence news, publicist Kymm Britton said: "Stone Temple Pilots have announced they have officially terminated Scott Weiland."
It said: "I learned of my supposed 'termination' from Stone Temple Pilots this morning by reading about it in the press. Not sure how I can be 'terminated' from a band that I founded, fronted and co-wrote many of its biggest hits, but that's something for the lawyers to figure out," Weiland said.
"In the meantime, I'm looking forward to seeing all of my fans on my solo tour which starts this Friday."
The band's 1992 debut, Core, has sold more than 8 million units in the United States.
Their hits include Vasoline, Interstate Love Song and Plush, which won a Grammy in 1993 for best hard rock performance with vocal.
Weiland was also in the supergroup Velvet Revolver with Slash and other musicians, basically after he was fired for the first time by STP a few years back.
