Ex-‘Madison Rising’ singer: Band’s founder is a druggie pervert – US Daily News


The ousted lead singer of “America’s most patriotic rock band” turned the volume up to 11 in his battle with the group’s manager and founder — who he accuses of being a secret druggie with a penchant for pleasuring himself in strip-club bathrooms Vocalist Dave Bray filed suit against Richard Mgrdechian, who hired the Navy veteran to front “Madison Rising” — which released a 2013 album that accused then-President Barack Obama of being the “anti-Christ” — before giving him the boot in 2016 The Manhattan federal court filing says that while on tour, Mgredechian “abused prescription drugs and “would make the band take detours to strip clubs for his habitual restroom masturbation issue ” Bray also claims that Mgrdechian “caused a significant problem” at the Texas home of a bandmate’s girlfriend when he “snuck into her room and masturbated, leaving evidence all over her personal sheets and bed pillow ” The suit seeks unspecified damages over claims that Mgrdechian and his company, Purple Eagle Entertainment, ripped off Bray by infringing on his copyright to various songs in the band’s repertoire “Mr. Mgrdechian’s unlawful and abhorrent conduct has done significant damage to the career of a very talented musician,” said Bray’s lawyer, Timothy Parlatore The tunes at issue include “Right to Bear,” “Lock ‘N Load” and Madison Rising’s arrangement of the “The Star-Spangled Banner ” That version of the national anthem was panned as “cringeworthy” and “spectacularly awful” when it was performed in 2014 at the Daytona International Speedway in Florida Bray’s legal action follows a suit that Purple Eagle filed against him and his wife in 2016, accusing Bray of stealing Madison Rising’s gigs, including four at rallies that helped elect President Trump Mrgdechian also alleged that Bray had an affair with former Massachusetts US Sen Scott Brown’s daughter, former “American Idol” contestant Ayla Brown, who toured with Madison Rising in 2015 At the time, she was married to former minor league baseball pitcher Keith Weiser Bray’s suit accuses Mgredechian of using Madison Rising “as a tool to push his personal, divisive, hateful, alt-right agenda ” But in a bizarre twist, Mgrdechian is currently listed as a managing director of two divisions of Teneo Holdings, which has close ties to former President Bill Clinton — who was once its “honorary chairman” — and formerly employed top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin Mrdrechian’s lawyer didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
