'My Chemical Romance' Drummer Booted After Stealing From Band

'My Chemical Romance' have booted drummer Michael Pedicone after he was caught stealing from the band.

"The relationship between My Chemical Romance and Michael Pedicone is over," says the group on its website.

"He was caught red handed stealing from the band and confessed to police after our show last night in Auburn, Washington."

"We are heartbroken and sick to our stomachs over this entire situation.

"The band has no intention of pressing charges or taking this matter any further than we have to. We just want him out of our lives."

"The people who play in this band are a family, and family should not take advantage of each other like he did."

"We are currently moving forward, and hope to have a new drummer in place for our show in Salt Lake City, Utah. The show must go on."

Pedicone admitted wrongdoing on Twitter but didn't expand on exactly what happened.

"What happened is more complicated than it sounds but I did make a mistake," he says. "It was never my intention to hurt this band or all of you."

"It was an error in judgement based on a whole other situation that's way deeper but this does not define me."

The band has added Dead Country's Jarrod Alexander as its drummer in the interim.
