LAS VEGAS (AP) — A lawyer for Motley Crue frontman Vince Neil says the rocker got back his social media passwords after suing a consultant he hired and accusing her of posting online without his consent.

Attorney James Kohl confirmed Friday that Kristy Sinsara handed over the passwords and the case was dismissed in early June.

In the March lawsuit filed in Las Vegas court, Neil said he gave his Facebook and LinkedIn profile passwords to Sinsara, who said she was a social media branding expert and would manage the accounts.

The lawsuit accused Sinsara of holding the passwords hostage and making unauthorized posts. Sinsara had said that it was a misunderstanding and that she had handed over the information in February.

Sinsara did not immediately respond to calls and emails seeking comment.
