Scott Weiland Terminated by Stone Temple Pilots

Stone Temple Pilots have issued a short statement, revealing that frontman Scott Weiland has been fired. "Stone Temple Pilots have announced they have officially terminated Scott Weiland," read the statement.
The band and the singer have had quite the rocky history through the years.
Weiland responded a few hours later with a statement of his own:
"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. In the meantime, I'm looking forward to seeing all of my fans on my solo tour which starts this Friday."
His Purple at the Core tour will see him playing STP songs.
