(AllHipHop News) “The Myers family is a close-knit family and always will be. Just the way Heavy liked it,” says Eulahlee Myers, mother of Dwight Myers better known as legendary rapper Heavy D.
Earlier this week reports began to circulate that Heavy’s brother, Floyd Myers, was seeking to take control of the rapper’s entire estate, but according Eulahlee, all of Heavy’s assets are going to his surviving daughter Xea.
In a statement issued to AllHipHop.com, Ms. Meyer says that 13-year-old Xea will obtain all money collected from her father’s social security, pension, and future royalties. Xea will also get all of Heavy’s personal belongings that are currently being held in storage.
As far as Floyd’s involvement with the estate, Eulahlee explains that the petition filed in the Los Angeles court in his name was to sell a condominium that both Heavy and Floyd owned together. A California law requires that this action be taken by a probate when a property owner passes.
Ms. Myers goes on to say:
Heavy’s Estate needs to be managed. It cannot be self-managed or self-administered and it has to be Court approved. Open bills, unfinished business, taxes and day to day decisions including future plans for his daughter all need be done. This management needs someone who is capable, smart, honest and close to this family.The family all wanted Floyd as that person to represent Dwight’s estate. This decision was made by Heavy’s mother Eulahlee, Heavy’s father Cliff and Heavy’s sister Portia. The family has a great relationship with Xea and her mother and are “all” working diligently to raise Xea the way Heavy intended.
Heavy D passed away in November of 2011 at the age of 44.
