John Oates shares cryptic message amid Daryl Hall lawsuit, restraining order

John Oates shared a message asking for a “more compassionate and supportive world” in the midst of a legal squabble with his musical partner, Daryl Hall.

“During this time of communal reflection and connection with loved ones, let’s not forget those experiencing challenges globally,” Oates tweeted Wednesday.

“As we come together, consider reaching out to support those in need—whether through local charities or international humanitarian initiatives,” he continued in his pre-Thanksgiving post.

“May our collective efforts contribute to a more compassionate and supportive world.”

Oates, 75, penned his plea for empathy and kindness the same day that the news of his legal skirmish broke.

News broke earlier this week that Hall is suing Oates.

Earlier this week, music lovers were shocked to learn Hall, 77, had filed a lawsuit against his longtime collaborator in a Nashville court.

The case is sealed, but sources told TMZ that the legal battle is over “the ground rules of who can sing what as a solo artist, along with money issues.”

Hall also requested a restraining order against Oates, which a judge granted.

The pair formed Hall & Oates in 1970.

The pair formed Hall & Oates in 1970 and released a string of hits like “Maneater,” “Kiss on My List,” “Rich Girl” and “You Make My Dreams.”

They released 21 albums together and sold over 80 million records, making them the most successful duo in music history.

Although they never officially broke up, they have recorded separately for years, occasionally coming together to tour.

Nevertheless, there have been cracks in their working relationship recently.

Last year, Hall slammed Oates on Bill Maher’s “Club Random” podcast, scoffing, “You think John Oates is my partner? … He’s my business partner. He’s not my creative partner.”

In interviews last year, Hall belittled Oates’ contributions.
Hall claimed he and Oates are not “creative” partners but rather “business” partners.

He went on, “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.”

In another 2022 interview, Hall complained about being part of a duo.

“Everything you do is juxtaposed against another person. Try doing that sometime,” he told the Los Angeles Times while discussing his latest solo record. “I don’t want to use the word ’emasculating,’ because that’s male, but it takes away your individuality.”
