Odb's Widow Branded 'Greedy' By Late Rapper's Manager

LATEST: OL' DIRTY BASTARD's manager has branded the late rapper's widow "greedy" for her claims she's owed child support payments.

ICELENE JONES, who was estranged from ODB at the time of his November (04) death, claims that neither she nor her three children with the star are set to receive any royalties or funds from the GOT YOUR MONEY rapper's upcoming album A SON UNIQUE.

In 1997, ODB - real name RUSSELL JONES - was arrested because he was $35,000 (GBP18,400) behind in child support payments to his spouse.

But ODB's manager JARRED WEISFELD has hit out at the claims, telling ALLHIPHOP.COM, "Since 3 September 1997 Russell Jones has paid Icelene Jones $272,906.97 in child support. If Icelene hasn't received any money it is because she hasn't taken the proper steps to create an estate."

The couple had three children together and according to published reports Dirty fathered at least seven other offspring starting in his teenage years.

Shortly after ODB's death, the Jones family began fighting over the rapper's estate, which had been largely controlled by his mother CHERRY JONES and Weisfeld.

Branding Icelene "greedy", Weisfeld adds, "(DAMON) DASH wants all of (ODB's) children to benefit off this album, not just a certain three. Cherry and I have always said that we want all the children to be taken care of, that's including Icelene's three."
