Motley Crue star Tommy Lee has won a legal battle against an engineer who alleged the rocker stole his idea for a drum kit rollercoaster.

The musician used the stunt during the band's 2011 tour, where he could be seen turning upside down as he played, but Los Angeles-based engineer Scott King claimed he pitched a similar idea to Lee in 1991. In 2012, King filed a lawsuit in L.A. County Superior Court demanding at least $400,000 in damages over allegations the rocker stole his idea.

However, King has lost the legal battle after a judge ruled he never obtained exclusive rights to the concept and Lee created his own version of the rollercoaster drum set, according to TMZ.
