ROB ZOMBIE 'Unmasks' GHOST's TOBIAS FORGE In Since-Deleted Instagram Post

Rob Zombie has posted of himself posing backstage with GHOST frontman and founder Tobias Forge, who performs as Papa Emeritus. The picture, which has since been removed from Zombie's Instagram account, was captioned: "Backstage in Argentina after the show with Tobias from @thebandghost"

A screen capture of Rob's post is available below.

GHOST has been the subject of intense speculation recently following the dismissal of the band's entire lineup last December by Forge and a recent lawsuit filed against Tobias by four ex-members, known previously only as Nameless Ghouls. The musicians have accused Tobias of cheating them out of their rightful share of the profits from the group's album releases and world tours.

The four ex-members were offered two separate contract proposals by Forge in 2016, which they rejected as "slave agreements."

The new lineup of GHOST, which made its live debut in late March, is rumored to include musicians who have previously played with THE SISTERS OF MERCY, KORN, PENDRAGON and BLOODBATH.

Since the musicians wear masks and are only identified as Nameless Ghouls, personnel changes in the group over its seven-year existence have gone unannounced.

Forge writes almost all of the group's music and does most of the act's interviews disguised as a Nameless Ghoul.

GHOST's most recent release was the "Popestar" EP, which was produced by Tom Dalgety, who has previously worked with PIXIES, ROYAL BLOOD and OPETH, among others.
