MESA, Ariz. (AP) -- Former Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks and her family are being sued for allegedly lending credibility to a woman accused of bilking investors in a no-kill animal shelter.

Britney Marx, 34, faces charges of defrauding someone of nearly $400,000 by purporting to build the animal shelter, then spending the money on herself.

Ms. Nicks, her brother and her mother are accused in the lawsuit of assisting Ms. Marx by staying silent about her previous fraud convictions and endorsing the shelter. The lawsuit was filed by Dale R. Lumb, one of the people Ms. Marx borrowed money from.

"God knows we had no idea she borrowed any money," said Barbara Nicks, the singer's mother. "It just kills me to think she borrowed money from people and didn't pay it back."

Ms. Marx goes on trial Monday on theft and fraud charges.
