Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s widow Icelene Jones claims that ODB’s cousin and Wu-Tang leader RZA has stiffed her on ODB’s royalties.
According to a lawsuit she has filed in New York, the RZA run Wu-Tang Clan Productions didn’t pay out any royalties to ODB’s estate between 2011 and 2021. ODB died in 2004 of an overdose.
In 2021, Jones finally got a 130K check. But she doesn’t believe that amount covers the 50 percent of net earnings on the publishing of ODB’s copyrighted songs that she says a 1992 contract with RZA entitled ODB and his estate to.
Jones is asking the court for royalties from merchandising and videos, damages of at least $1 million, interest, attorneys’ fees, and costs.
