“American Idol” contestant Chris Daughtry has been sued by three former bandmates, the News & Record of Greensboro, N.C. reports.

In a suit filed last week in Guilford County Superior Court, Ryan Andrews, Scott Crawford and Mark Perr allege they are owed royalties for four songs the men claim they helped write, according to the News & Record. The songs in question are “Home,” “Breakdown,” “Conviction” and “Sinking,” according to My Fox Memphis.

The three men were in Daughtry’s pre- “Idol” band Absent Element. They released one album titled “Uprooted.”

Daughtry responded to the allegations on his Web site. “I am very hurt by these false accusations,” he said. “The songs listed in this lawsuit were written solely by me and no one else and at this time, I have no further comment.”

The singer is currently on tour with his band, Daughtry.
