Virgin Sues 30 Seconds to Mars for Breach of Contract

Actor Jared Leto's band, 30 Seconds to Mars, is being sued for only delivering 2 of the 5 albums agreed upon when they signed with now-defunct Virgin Records imprint Immortal in 1999.

Citing the 7 year limit imposed on contracts by the California Labor Code, 30 Seconds to Mars opted out of their recording contract in writing last month. Sources close to the band allege Leto and co. have not been remunerated accordingly for over 2 million copies sold of their albums, the 2002 self-titled debut, and 2005's A Beautiful Lie.

The label is suing them for $30 million.
