Michael Keith of 112 just went on record as saying the group broke up because another member took money that was intended for him and Slim. This is quite a surprise. Although nothing indicated the foursome would be reuniting for another album, we never suspected there was internal strife. Creative differences are to be expected in partnerships, but one thing youjust don't mess with is someone's money. In an interview with Eurweb, Mike states:
"Because I am such a trustworthy person, and I teach my son the value of being a trustworthy person, once you negate all that, it's something there that's irreconcilable in my opinion. I've put so much of myself into 112 and into the brand and into these guys. For it to be a situation that boils down to simply money, that's something I can't forgive."
Even worse is that this looks like it will result in litigation, pending talks with his business manager. At that point, we'll know if the party in question is Daron, who largely played a producer role in addition to vocals, or Q. Parker, who has dropped some solo tracks of his own in recent months. At any rate, Mike is also releasing some music, so the timing of this bombshell is serendipitous to say the least. I hope they work it out, because this fan did not enjoy writing this. [EUR]
