LMFAO ‘disagreeing over money’

LMFAO are reportedly in dispute over the millions they have made from their hit songs.

The Grammy-nominate electro-pop duo, Redfoo and Sky Blu, are said to be booking separate DJ appearances at clubs.

Their hits, including Party Rocking and Every Day I’m Shufflin’, have shot the two to fame and fortune. Their catchy songs have been covered by the likes of Bruce Springsteen and Ricky Martin on Glee.

This year they performed alongside Madonna at the Superbowl halftime. But since the NFL show in February, the singers have seldom taken to the stage together as they are believed to have been arguing over their profits.

“Redfoo has always been promoting himself, doing his own thing,” a source told the New York Post.

This means Redfoo has been scoring more $100,000-a-night DJ shows than Sky Blu, according to the source.

It is understood Redfoo’s use of the band’s Party Rock title for his own events have been his prime marketing tool.

Sky Blu performed Tuesday at the three-year anniversary party of the Chandelier Room at the W Hoboken. He told the crowd it was his first performance in three months.

LMFAO are planning a world tour together with shows beginning in Sweden in May. They also performed on American Idol last night. Representatives for the duo did not return calls.

Redfoo, real name Stefan Kendal Gordy, and his nephew Sky Blu - called Skyler Austen Gordy - are the son and grandson of Motown founder Berry Gordy.

    Driving a $900,000 Porsche 918 Spyder to the future

    It’s more than just its inherent speed, or the whooshing noise that fills the cabin like a school choir jamming with James Hetfield. It’s what it represents in an industry full of skeptics. It’s a portal into the future – a time capsule left by some mad scientist born decades too soon. It’s something that shouldn’t exist. And yet it does.
