How many disgruntled people has Jack White left behind him? The latest gripe to crawl out of the woodwork is Jim Diamond, who co-produced The White Stripes back in 1999.

He reckons he deserves a bigger slice of the cash for helping the band come up with their trademark sound. Jack White, unsurprisingly, doesn't:

"It is a meritless case which will be defended with vigor," said Bert Deixler, the Los-Angeles based attorney representing the White Stripes.

The White Stripes deny that Diamond helped create the band's style. The band said in court documents that they paid him $35 an hour for time at his Ghetto Recorders studio, which he started in 1996.

Which, we can't help thinking, is probably more than Meg got.
