Mike Love and fellow Beach Boys founders Brian Wilson and Al Jardine are at odds again because of Love’s recent performance at a Donald Trump fundraiser.

“We have absolutely nothing to do with the Trump benefit today in Newport Beach. Zero,” a spokesperson for the two original Beach Boys told Variety. “We didn’t even know about it.”

While Love has been very vocal about his support for Trump, Wilson and Jardine have not, and Wilson has previously denounced performances of Love’s under the Beach Boys’ name in support of Trump.

Though neither Wilson nor Jardine have tweeted about this particular fundraiser, Wilson has tweeted against one of Love’s performances before.

The show in question was a convention for Safari Club International in Reno, Nevada. Just like he did at the Trump fundraiser, Love elected to perform despite the other original Beach Boys’ protests.
