The heirs of Four Tops founding member Renaldo “Obie” Benson are suing the group’s sole surviving member to find out what’s going on with their money.
The Detroit News says Benson’s daughters, Tobi Walker and Eboni Benson, filed suit in Wayne Circuit Court this week claiming Abdul “Duke” Fakir has failed to collect and account for money owed to The Four Tops LLC.
Obie Benson died in 2005. His daughters claim Fakir “failed to collect all revenue owed to the company” and it “lost revenue and profits” because of him. They are seeking at least $25,000, dissolution of the business and removal of Fakir as its manager.
Walker said the suit does not seek to stop Fakir from performing.
Benson declined comment. Fakir and his attorney were not immediately available for comment.
