General Larry Platt, whose “Pants on the Ground” American Idol audition song won him a pop culture 15 minutes, has been sued by a production company, American King Music, for expenses related to the song’s production.

AKM reportedly funded a recording session with Platt and the rapper Mims to produce a full-length version of “Pants,” but Platt subsequently changed management, and, the company claims, “failed or refused to sign the final draft of the distribution agreement,” according to court papers obtained by EW.

The plaintiffs are seeking a court judgment recognizing their partial ownership of the song, and authorization to distribute it.
