Lil Peep had a short-lived career, though only in a few years of his rise to mainstream, he garnered a solid fanbase. The 21-year-old rapper was found dead in his tour bus back in November 15, 2017.
While Lil Peep’s death resulted from heavy drug overdose, his mother blamed the late rapper’s management company. His mom, Liza Womack, has successfully taken her son’s management company to trial.
A Los Angeles judge has ruled to move wrongful death case against late rapper’s former management company First Access Entertainment to trial.
According to Rolling Stone, Judge Teresa. A Beaudet ruled on Wednesday (Feb 16) that the late rapper’s mother “demonstrated a casual connection” when it came to negligence shown by his former management company FAE during the rapper’s drug overdose in 2017.
A trial is now set for March of 2023. A while back, Womack claimed that the drugs were given to her son by tour manager Belinda Mercer. And via unsealed text messages, it is contended that FAE oversaw a culture of “drug-infected mismanagement.”
So far, all the efforts of getting the suit dismissed by Belinda Mercer alongside FAE were rejected by the judge, and now the trial is on. Maybe we’ll now finally see what comes of this. Stay tuned for the updates.
