UB40 singer sued by his brothers

UB40 singer sued by his brothers

It seems the brother love between former UB40’s Ali Campbell and his brother Duncan could be threatened in the latest development is that Ali is being sued by his brothers!

The former lead singer who quit the chart-toppers in 2008, which led to sibling Robin, 61, inviting their brother Duncan to replace him.

But legal action began after Ali set up his own UB40 group – featuring Mickey Virtue and co-frontman Astro – which sparked a big family fall out.

Robin, Duncan and their four other original members are now suing their rivals for damages at the High Court, where they want judges to rule they own the ban name.

Who does the public really want to see Ali and his group or his brothers with a few of the original members also?

The court case has now triggered a family rift with the financial fallout seeing a liquidation of the group’s management company, the sale of its back catalogue and a rash of bankruptcies amongst band members.

We will be watching this one closely to see how it will all play out.
