My Chemical Romance Drummer FIRED For Stealing From The Band!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooMusic Minute


This is absolutely devastating.

My Chemical Romance drummer Michael Pedicone, who replaced Bob Bryar in March of 2010, has been fired from the band after he was caught stealing after Friday night's show in Washington.

Guitarist Frank Lero announced in a statement yesterday:

"The relationship between My Chemical Romance and Michael Pedicone is over. He was caught red-handed stealing from the band and confessed to police after our show last night in Auburn, Washington. We are heartbroken and sick to our stomachs over this entire situation. The band has no intention of pressing charges or taking this matter any further than we have to. We just want him out of our lives."

Meanwhile, Pedicone wrote via Twitter:

"What happened is more complicated than it sounds but I did make a mistake. It was never my intention to hurt this band or all of you.

"It was an error in judgement based on a whole other situation that's way deeper but this does not define me."

What an unbelievable betrayal of their trust and friendship.

Regardless of whatever reasons or excuses he has, stealing is unacceptable, and unfortunately, the band had to do what was right.

Stay strong, guys! We're thinking of you!

    It's Frank Iero, not Frank Lero.

    I love it when people say, "this does not define me" after being caught stealing, drunk driving, having sex with a minor, etc. Um, yeah, actually it DOES define you.

    Every fucking time you post about them, you spell someone's name wrong. Just because they aren't your precious Gaga, it doesnt mean they aren't worthy of some spell check.

    I have been friends with Pedicone for several years! He has speant time with my family and friends. And if he says there is a deeper situation, then there is! I wish for him to get whatever help he needs to get out of the situation. It may be drugs it may be fame has gotten to him. We don't know we weren't there! I do know that I will stand by him and support him. He has done the same for me when I lost my brother to a heart attack, and had to take his kids and help raise them for a while! He was there for me! I wish him luck and I wish him to get well! I you knew him personnaly you'd understand why this is so out of hid character!

    Re: hloktygrl – If you really were his friend, you wouldn't be blabbing about him on a gossip website. Any friend of mine who did that would be cut out of my life permanently. The fact that you're yakking about your "friend" on a celebrity gossip website shows that you're just as low-class as this thief who stole from his friends and fellow band members.
