A report from TMZ also stated that Shekoski had troublingly made a threat of suicide. Speaking via their social media today, The Used stated:

“Due to personal and artistic differences, Justin is no longer the guitar player for The Used. As a band we strive for an honest transparent connection with our fans. Despite the sensationalism and immoral reporting of media publications that we have had nothing to do with, we as a band had to take the proper legal precautions.
