(AllHipHop News) Eulahlee Myers, the mother of the late Heavy D, has responded to the speculation as to who will run the legendary rapper’s estate.
Floyd, Heavy’s brother, filed legal documents that would make him the admin for the estate, an assertion rooted in an old will document. The will does not include Heavy D’s daughter Xea in it.
Eulahlee Myers says that the two brothers worked together for many years and that that legal documents are not fully explanatory.
“This close relationship continued through Heavy’s career and through their adulthood,” Myers said in a statement from her representative Rachel Noerdlinger. “The petition filed in the LA Courts is to sell a condominium that they owned together since 1998. California law requires a probate for the sale of the Real Property to clear the title when someone passes. The probate process is a formality that is required by the State of California and nothing more.”
She also said that anything that Heavy does have, including royalty checks, will go to his daughter.
“All of Heavy’s assets are going to his 13-year-old daughter Xea, including his Social Security, Pension, and future royalties. All of Heavy’s personal belongings are in storage for his daughter until she gets a bit older,” Myers continued.
The decision for Floyd to manage the affairs is not a beef, as promoted in various media outlets, she said.
“The family all wanted Floyd as that person to represent Dwight’s estate. The family has a great relationship with Xea and her mother and are all working diligently to raise Xea the way Heavy intended,” the statement finishes. “The Myers family is a close knit family and always will be. Just the way Heavy liked it….”
Heavy D, real name Dwight Errington Myers, died November 11, 2011 of a pulmonary embolism.
