John Mayer‘s expensive watch taste isn’t quite the wonderland he had hoped. Who says you need a real watch?

The singer reports he has spent over $5 million on watches. But, what he originally thought were authentic Rolex watches have since been deemed counterfeit by the watch brand. So, he’s suing.

Mayer filed a complaint against watch dealer Robert Maron in California Superior Court on Tuesday (March 18), according to Billboard. The case he filed is a “complaint for rescission and restitution due to fraud, rescission due to mistake, breach of contract, fraud and negligent misrepresentation.”

In the complaint, Mayer states Maron is a “self-described preeminent expert on wristwatches and person of impeccable integrity” and his “trusted friend.” After Mayer discovered his watches’ counterfeit parts, Maron allegedly refused to take the watches back.
