EXCLUSIVE: 50 Hires Attorney; P.I. To Investigate Chris Lighty’s Death

(AllHipHop News) United States Hip-Hop star 50 Cent is bankrolling a probe into the death of his high-powered manager, Chris Lighty, who allegedly committed suicide last month.

50 Cent and Chris Lighty’s family have hired attorney Scott E. Leemon of Leemon Law and private investigator Les Levine  to look into Chris Lighty’s death, which was ruled a suicide by the New York Medical Examiner.

The new investigation will focus on all of the circumstances surrounding Chris Lighty’s death, attorney Scott E. Leemon told AllHipHop.com in a statement.

“I will confirm that I have been asked by Chris’ mother and many of his former clients/business associates/friends (including 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes and Q-TIP) to fully investigate all of the circumstances surrounding his premature death,” Scott E. Leemon told AllHipHop.com.

According to an article by Lisa Evers of Fox 5 in New York, 50 Cent said that Chris Lighty’s mother came to him, asking for help because, she didn’t believe her son would take his own life.

50 Cent shared the same opinion and started the process of investigating Lighty’s alleged suicide.

Although initial reports stated that Chris Lighty could have been distraught over his financial situation, Fox 5 obtained a copy of the high-powered manager’s will, which left over $1.6 million in a trust fund for his children.

Lighty had also just secured a world tour for 50 Cent, which is expected to commence next year.

The will also left Chris Lighty’s entire estate, which is worth millions, to his wife, Veronica, who he was in the process of divorcing.

According to Dr. Michael Baden, who is conducting an independent autopsy, Chris Lighty definitely died of a gunshot wound, but he is investigating other circumstances surrounding Lighty’s death, which have not been revealed.

“His mother has asked me to help her determine if anyone or more people are legally responsible for Chris’ death,” Scott E. Leemon told AllHipHop.com. “And, if so, whether a wrongful death action should be filed against them. As such, the investigation will focus on those questions.”

Scott E. Leemon and Les Levine are currently seeking any parties who may have more information about Chris Lighty and the circumstances surrounding his death.

“The investigation is being lead by private investigator Les Levine and is in its’ extreme early stages. It is being initially funded by 50 Cent with the hope of others helping,” Scott E. Leemon added. “If anyone in the public has information about Chris’ death it may be emailed to: tips@leemonlaw.com.”
