Four Tops Heirs Sue Surviving Member Fakir
The heirs of Four Tops founding member Renaldo “Obie” Benson are suing the group’s sole surviving member for money they say they are owed.
The Detroit News says Benson’s daughters, Tobi Walker and Eboni Benson, filed suit in Wayne County Circuit Court this week claiming Abdul “Duke” Fakir has failed to 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.
A message seeking comment was left Thursday by The Associated Press at the last known numbers for Walker and Fakir. No listing was available for Eboni Benson.
