One of the most popular musical groups of the 1980s has filed a lawsuit against some of its fans. ABC News reports that the English group Duran Duran is suing its own fan club.

"The group known for hits like 'Notorious' and 'Hungry Like the Wolf' accuses the suburban Chicago-based club of breaching contract by not paying the band promised revenue," the story reports.

The lawsuit, filed this week in Cook County Circuit Court, names Glenview-based Worldwide Fan Clubs Inc. as the defendant.

"It says the band entered a 2010 contract allowing the club to collect memberships and sell merchandise. The contract also allegedly stipulates Duran Duran would get 75 percent of the profits," the story reports.

The company reportedly declined to comment.
