CHICAGO (AP) -- Popular 1980s band Duran Duran is suing its own fan club.

The group known for hits like “Notorious” and “Hungry Like the Wolf” accuses the suburban Chicago-based club of breeching contract by not forwarding promised revenue to the band.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Duran Duran’s lawsuit names Glenview-based Worldwide Fan Clubs, Inc. as the defendant. The suit was filed in Cook County Circuit Court this week.

It says the band entered a 2010 contract allowing the club to collect memberships and sell merchandise. The contract also allegedly stipulates Duran Duran would get 75 percent of the profits.

Someone who answered the phone Wednesday at the Glenview office of Worldwide Fan Clubs said the company had no comment.
