Heavy D - Heavy D's Brother Requests Control Over Late Star's Estate
Heavy D's brother has filed legal papers to gain control of the late rapper's estate.
Floyd Myers, who previously served as the hip-hop star's business manager, claims the Now That We Found Love hitmaker wrote a will in 1999 which left everything to his sibling.
He reportedly lost the document years ago, but Myers has since found his copy and is now asking a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge to appoint him executor of Heavy D's estate, which included $320,000 (£206,452) in listed assets.
However, Floyd's lawyer tells Tmz.com the court request is simply a formality to clear the title on a condominium the brothers co-owned so it can be sold off.
Heavy D, real name Dwight Arrington Myers, died from a pulmonary embolism outside his Los Angeles home in November, 2011, aged 44 - before he could update his will to include his daughter, who was born in 2000.
