Wu-Tang Clan's Russell Jones, known worldwide as Ol'Dirty Bastard, is Ashana Jones and his other six from five different women. He was the father of the children.
As Dirty was called by a friend, Ashana was only seven years old when she died of an accidental drug overdose, but she called him"a wonderful father. I remember that it was. She remembers going with him to Connie Island, his grandma's house, Universal Studios. She had a "good relationship" even with her half-brother.
But when the rapper died suddenly at the age of 35 in 2004, he didn't leave a will — and his descendants still fought for their share of his heritage. I am.
"He was young," Jarred Weisfeld, a former ODB manager, told The Post. "I can't tell a 35-year-old to get the will."
In 2020, Ashana's mother, Krishana Lacquer, dates back to the time of his death and her excellent child support. Received a $ 500,000 settlement for. Payment was completed this February.
"This time, I approve that the case was closed. Must. Lacquer told the post. "Then I give the lawyer a vassal and ask his daughter to get an inheritance from Russell's property."
"I I haven't seen anything yet, and I don't have any brothers, "Ashana told The Post. "I don't know what I'm borrowing. But I just want what I'm borrowing. The total can be quite large and I'm currently receiving zero."
In 2007, two other mothers of ODB's children, Cheryl McCall and Suzy Wong,failed to bid on ODB's widow and administrator Icelene Jones in a surrogacy court.. Real estate deleted from her position.
Since the court's objection The descendants of ODB are not particularly willing to make any move that would lead them to inheritance. But that may change soon.
"I contacted Greg [Watts, a real estate lawyer] to clarify the situation regarding the share of the heirs," Ashana said. "I contacted in the hope that someone would tell me when and who would be established and when I would receive the payment, so I could avoid going to court. I don't want to. But if I have to, I do. I'm ignored. I'm sloppy. I have to quit the game. "
ODB Did not leave a will, so New York decided how to divide the rapper's money. Icelene was considered to earn half the money on his property, and the rest was split among his apparently recognized seven children. (Reportedly, there could have been as many as 13 children.)
They haven't been paid yet.
Lacquer, who has never married a rapper, said Iseren, "By claiming she is not Russell's child, she tries to separate her four children who are not her from her inheritance. I did. " She went to the point of filing a frivolous proceeding against my daughter in California, and I claimed that we lied to Russell as her father. She finally withdrew the proceedings. But that's the worst you can do.
Rucker insisted in the post, "Icelene ... doesn't give us real estate money accounting."
Icelene married to ODB His death Thirteen years ago,told The Post in 2004, "On record, he has only three children. Nothing else has been proven. Blood tests and births. There was no signing of the certificate. He has three children and what we know is by his wife — by me. "
According to Rucker. , ODB loved his seven children.
"He's all seven babies I met their grandmother and helped raise all the children, "Raker said. "He was a wonderful father. He took care of her from the first breath to the last breath of my daughter."
But that was the relationship between Lacquer and Iselen. Did not help. "A few months [from ODB's funeral]," Lacquer said. "I got a call from a lawyer at the time of [Iselen]. He was annoying. His words permeated my soul. He said," She is his wife, [you] say No, and she inherits everything, "I said," not after all debt has been paid, "he said," no debt, "I said Russell was nurturing. He said the cost was paid. I was awarded $ 1,719 per month. We have been fighting since 2004 and [Real Estate] has finally settled down with me.
Nevertheless, lacquer believes there is much more. "Without a lot of money, no one would pay $ 500,000."
2021, Wu-Tang Productions, Inc. In addition, we received "fixed payments" for 2019 and 2020. Moreover, in a proceeding filed against Wu-Tang Clan in February,,ODB's real estate is obliged to pay royalties from his copyright and images, dating back to 2011. Insisted. $ 1 million in damages.
As for how much the rapper's real estate is currently worth, real estate lawyer Watts wrote in a post, "Real estate is in flux. You ... have to explain debt and debt. "Hmm."
"There is no doubt that this estate created seven people after his death," Weissfeld said. "It would have been brought about by the song's royalties, documentaries, and the use of his song in the opening credits of'Knockup'. With that alone, he should have gotten six numbers.
According to Watts, money is coming — Just slowly.
"The people identified as Ashana and heirs are real estate distributors," he said. "When it was first formed, there was no money in real estate. Russell Jones died and there was nothing. His wife touts his image and music with other marketing executives. [And] made money for real estate. ”— Apart from what Icelene claims that Utan owes to real estate. "Heirs can potentially get a distribution. As soon as we accumulate it, they sometimes receive a distribution. For example, if the property gets $ 1 million, after deducting the cost.
Watts claims that the heirs have not been paid because of the precedent for child support claims for lacquer.
"We are the heirs of money However, Ashana's mother objected to distributing $ 500,000 to heirs, including her daughter, "Watts told Post. "She wanted to be paid first regardless. We had to do that."
Lacquer said: The next step is for Ashana and her other siblings to acquire the rights.
Regarding what Ol'Dirty Bastard himself would do with all of this family drama, his former manager Weissfeld said: If he could see this, he would tell me he should have divorced him. He got out of jail and asked for three things. He wanted a record deal, a clothing line, and a divorce. Before he died I took him to two out of three.
