Daryl Hall gets restraining order against John Oates as Hall & Oates face off in legal battle

Daryl Hall gets restraining order against John Oates as Hall & Oates face off in legal battle

Pop duo Hall & Oates are embroiled in a legal battle

Daryl Hall has been granted a restraining order against his bandmate.

Hall is one half of the 70s pop duo, Hall & Oates, with John Oates making up the other half.

Now the pair are reported to be in legal battle after Hall filed a lawsuit against Oates earlier this month.

He has since been granted a temporary restraining order against Oates, which is set to come into force on Thursday, November 30, Variety reports.

A hearing is currently scheduled in the case on the same day at 9:30am, a Public Records Request Coordinator from Nashville Chancery Court confirmed to UNILAD.

According to court documents obtained by Philadelphia magazine, the restraining bond has been set at $50,000.

UNILAD have contacted both parties for comment.

Reportedly the court documents are sealed, therefore little is known about the lawsuit itself, but Hall has previously hinted that the relationship with his Hall & Oates bandmate wasn't as it once was.

"You think John Oates is my partner?" he said on the Club Random podcast last year.

"He’s my business partner. He’s not my creative partner."

But the 'Say It Isn't So' hitmaker went on to hail Oates as his 'brother'.

He explained at the time: "John and I are brothers, but we are not creative brothers. We are business partners.

"We made records called Hall & Oates together, but we’ve always been very separate, and that’s a really important thing for me.”

Elsewhere, Hall also spoke of how he was interested in doing his own thing - despite the pair having worked on music together in recent years.

"Perceptions changed, life changed, everything changed," Hall told the Los Angeles Times last year when asked if he would be reuniting with Oates anytime soon.

The duo have several hit songs under the belts.

"I’m more interested in pursuing my own world. And so is John," he went on.

The duo formed in Philadelphia in 1970 and went on to release hit tracks such as 'I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)', 'Maneater', 'Rich Girl,' 'Kiss On My List,' 'Out Of Touch' and 'Private Eyes' - a handful of which went on to be No.1 songs.

And just last year, Hall and Oates were touring together despite Hall's comments about wanting to 'pursue [his] own world'.

They both have their own solo careers alongside the success of Hall & Oates, but have never officially disbanded as a duo.
