U2 bassist Adam Clayton is suing the Bank of Ireland Private Banking and the accounting firm Gaby Smyth Co. over €4.8 million in misappropriated funds. According to The Irish Independent, Clayton says that his former personal assistant, Carol Hawkins, took the money over a five-year period ending in November 2009.

The rocker is seeking €4.38 million – nearly $7 million – in damages for the firm’s “alleged negligence and breach of contract.” Clayton says that the accountants told him that the misappropriated sum was €13,585 million when it was actually closer to €4.4 million in a September 2008 report.

Clayton has a separate lawsuit against Hawkins, who was charged with 184 theft and fraud charges in January 2011.
