Odb Mother And Manager Sue For Exploitation

Late rapper OL' DIRTY BASTARD's mother CHERRY JONES is suing production company AGU ENTERTAINMENT, for allegedly exploiting her dead son.

The former WU TANG CLAN star's mother and manager JARRED WEISFELD have filed a $1.8 million (GBP) lawsuit against the Florida-based firm, claiming they failed to fulfil deals for a hip-hop album and DVD, while continuing to use ODB's name to attract investors.

ODB, whose real name was RUSSELL JONES, collapsed in a Manhattan recording studio in November (04) after an accidental overdose on cocaine and a prescription painkillers.

Weisfeld's attorney MARK FREY says, "We're just saddened and shocked that AGU would do this, given what everyone had been through with Dirty's death."
