The family of late music manager Chris Lighty is seeking further investigation into the circumstances surrounding Lighty’s apparent suicide. The family has launched a petition urging that certain forensic tests be conducted that were not taken care of at the time of the famed industry mainstay’s August 2012 death. “The main problem that we encountered was that the NYPD did not do a thorough investigation into Chris’ death,” Attorney Scott Leemon said in a statement. “In fact, what they did do was cursory, at best.”
Leemon states that a gunpowder residue test was not conducted at the death scene, nor was a DNA test conducted on the weapon used in the death. “We have uncovered real information that needs to be followed up on by those in authority,” said Lighty’s mother. The family’s petition is available to sign at iPetition.
Rappers, careful what you boast and brag about. Future’sfirst baby mama is taking the struggle falsetto king back to court over child support payments. She wants more cash. In early January, Future came to terms with Jessica Smith over child support payments. A DNA test proved Future, born Nayvadius Wilburn Cash, was the father of a 10-year-old son. Citing a monthly income of $16,516, Future agreed he would pay $1,662 a month in child support. However, Smith alleges that shortly thereafter the “Same Damn Time” rapper claimed to carry 25 large on his person at all times, reports TMZ. Note: This not that safest things to do in the hood, just saying. Smith felts that she was duped, and immediately filed paperwork to get their child support terms updated. Smith claims Future makes $50K a month, which if the math stays the same would mean about $5,000 in child support payments.
A couple of points to be made here. Rappers lie about their net worth all the time. But Future is making bank considering he is a hot commodity in the game and even has penning hits songs for Rihanna to his credit. Also worth noting, it seems like Future didn’t know about his son until Smith came out the woodwork and sued him last year. Where was she when he was broke? But hey, all the money will be going to the child, right? Just saying. Future’s new album, Future Hendrix, is due out later this year.
The courts haven’t been kind to Future in 2013, as the rapper faces new paternity suit drama. TMZ reports that a woman has filed suit against Future earlier this month, claiming that she gave birth to his son on December 4th.The woman is seeking child support payments. In the suit, the documents provide that if Future disputes the paternity, the woman wants a judge to order a DNA test. Earlier in January, Future settled another paternity suit that resulted in him agreeing to pay $1,662 a month in child support for his 10-year-old son. Future recently dropped the mixtape FBG: The Movie.
Future has to pay up after confirming that he has a son.
Future has settled his baby mama drama, but it looks like it’ll cost him. TMZ reports that the rapper recently took at DNA test which confirmed that he’s the father of a 10-year-old boy. Future was sued in 2012 by Jessica Smith, who claimed that the rapper had impregnated her in 2001. Smith sought child support. Reportedly, the DNA test confirmed with 99.9 percent certainty that the child was his. As a result, Future entered into a settlement with Smith, agreeing to be legally recognized as the father, pay $1,662 in child support per month (he listed his monthly income at $16,516.30) and pay the $889 tab for the DNA test. Future most recently released his new mixtape, F.G.B. (The Movie) for free download this month, and is contemplating recording a mixtape with Drake. In recent years, much has been made of high-profile child support cases like those of Nas, Gucci Mane and Scott Storch.
Chris Rock has reached a confidential settlement to end a lawsuit that involves a Hungarian model, paternity, Anthony Pellicano and a Kleenex tissue kept in a freezer. The legal claim was filed byMonika Zsibrita in Los Angeles Superior Court. She brought a paternity action against Rock more than a decade ago, but DNA tests showed that he was not the father of her daughter. Nevertheless, according to a later lawsuit that was first filed asJane Doe v. John Doe to keep secrets, Rock and Zsibrita executed a confidentiality agreement to cover up what allegedly happened in 1998 in a Four Seasons hotel in Beverly Hills. According to Zsibrita, Rock attacked her and attempted to force her to perform oral sex on him. A week later, the two went out on another date, and there allegedly was forced intercourse. In the pleadings, Rock denied all allegations of rape and other wrongdoing. Zsibrita became pregnant and believed the child to be Rock’s, but the paternity test said it wasn’t. During the paternity proceeding, Rock hired Pellicano, and Zsibrita reported that her house was broken into and pictures of her daughter were taken. The two sides agreed to confidentiality, but that started to unravel when Rock appeared on the Howard Stern radio show, saying that he was scammed, that he was approached by a woman saying she was a big fan, that he forgot to wear a condom, that a Nigerian got her pregnant and that it was all a setup. via:TheUrbanDaily
