When did hayley williams and josh farro start dating
He claims that Williams is the only member of the band signed to Atlantic Records, and that her bandmates were simply "riding on the coattails of 'Hayley's dream.' " "Hayley's manager would tell the band to be in the lobby of the hotel at a certain time, but he and Hayley wouldn't show for hours.
We found out that they had been meeting with record label executives all morning without us, which is totally weird given that this wasn't simply a solo artist, but we were a band," Farro writes. After many meetings between Hayley, her manager and the labels they decided to sign her to Atlantic Records.
If music is what God calls us to in the future, we hope that you all will be a part of it." A spokesperson for Paramore's labels, Atlantic/Fueled By Ramen, could not be reached for comment on Farro's statement.

I had a statement typed ready to post to you guys but Hayley released one without my permission," his statement begins.
"I wish it didn't have to happen that way, Zac and I wanted to be the ones you heard it from.
Farro also claims that, despite the fact that he came up with the name Paramore, the project was always meant to showcase Williams, and that, at her insistence, they were meant to operate under the assumption that they were an actual band.
The friendships our band once had were no longer existent." He closes the statement by saying he didn't intend "to belittle or disgrace" his former bandmates and that he simply wanted "to clarify our decision for leaving and our desire to finally tell you guys the truth." He also adds that both he and his brother were trying to figure out "a friendly way to leave our part of Paramore intact." He closes the letter by saying, "We want to thank you guys for all of your love and support over the past seven years.
It's been an honor creating and playing music for you.
"The management then decided to build our band up the grass-roots route.
They put Hayley on Fueled by Ramen not making it known she was signed to Atlantic as well," he writes.
