AHH Stray News: Battle Over Dirty’s Estate Continues

Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s mother Cherry Jones will appear in Brooklyn Surrogate Court on April 1 in the ongoing battle over the rapper’s estate, according to The New York Post. Ol’ Dirty’s mother will challenge the role of Dirty’s widow Icelene Jones as administrator of his estate, once again claiming that Icelene is misusing funds the deceased rapper’s estate earns. The battle over Ol’ Dirty’s estate ensued immediately after the rapper, born Russell Jones, died of drug induced heart attack at Wu-Tang’s 36 Records recording studio on November 13, 2004. Two other women with children by Ol’ Dirty Bastard have also accused Icelene of mismanaging hundreds of thousands of dollars since Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s death.
