Ol Dirty Bastard Funeral Tomorrow, ODB Reality Show On Hold

odb

Ol’ Dirty Bastard

will be laid to rest tomorrow (Thursday) November 18th at the Christian Cultural

Centre in Brooklyn, New York.

A private ceremony

will take place for the family and friends of the rapper, followed by a public

memorial service, in which thousands are expected to attend.

According to the

deceased rapper’s handlers, his estate is set to be divided among 7 of

his children.

His wife, Icelene

Jones, stated that she expected a battle to ensue over his estate, because the

rapper did not leave a will.

Results from Ol’

Dirty Bastard’s autopsy thus far have been inconclusive, but an official

statement is not expected for another week.

Sources stated

that the rapper complained of chest pains prior to collapsing and dying at 36

Records in Manhattan on November 13th.

The New York Post

reported that the rapper had been “up for two days” snorting cocaine.

Other sources stated that shortly before his death, he was on various prescribed

medications.

His manager dismissed

the speculation, stating that the rapper had been laying low since he had been

released from prison and had turned his life around.

In related news,

executives at Spike TV are trying to determine what to do with a reality show

they created with Ol’ Dirty, titled "Stuck on ODB."

The show was filmed

last summer and one contestant who was fitted with an electronic ankle bracelet

for five days and ordered to stay within 10 feet of Ol’ Dirty at all times.

If the contestant

goes out of the designated 10 feet, the bracelet beeps and the contestant lost

money out of a cash prize pot.

“Right now

things are on hold due to the tragic circumstances," a Spike spokesman

said in a statement.
