Former Evanescence guitarist Ben Moody has been sued by his managers, who say the song-writer owes him $500,0000 in unpaid commissions.

According to TMZ, Rider Management Inc. has sued Moody, claiming they signed a deal with him in 2006 that would entitle them to receive commission on his songs. They say they haven't seen that money.

Moody left Evanescence in 2003 after a falling out with Amy Lee, and has written a ton of hits for singers, including Celine Dion, Daughtry, and Kelly Clarkson.

Evanescence announced their hiatus in September 2012.

Moody is now a member of We Are the Fallen and the Halo Method.
