    The Farro Brothers, who split with Paramore earlier this week, posted a lengthy blog on Tuesday. While the post references both Zac and Josh, Josh appears to be the main writer. The brothers make a lot of statements about their situation in the band and the details they reveal have the makings of a soap opera.

    Josh says that Hayley Williams released her statement first, besting him from revealing the information. They also say that Hayley's manager and parents wanted her to be a solo artist and forced her to initially leave the band and that she returned to ask for the Farros' services.

    Farro also says that Hayley is the only one contractually obligated to Atlantic, meaning they were hired guns essentially.

    A rep for Paramore said, according to Billboard, that "we have no further comment other than the announcement that has been posted to paramore.net."

    Team Hayley or Team Farro Brothers?
