The sudden and shocking suicidal death of music manager Chris Lighty is still a surprise for many people. Lighty was characterized as one of the most loved and humble persons in the music industry. When news spread that Lighty allegedly committed suicide and “shot himself in the head” there were many mixed messages of whether or not the reports were true and a possible homicide was brought into question.
Well, more eyebrows raised following the Lighty’s funeral. Lighty’s mother requested a second autopsy , and Lighty’s Will is also being contested after it was revealed that Lighty’s wife, Veronica Lighty was left to inherit all personal and professional assets of Chris Lighty. In the will [obtained by fox news] Lighty also placed 1.6 million dollars in a separate trust fund account for his children. To honor Lighty’s mother request, rapper 50 cent [who was managed and mentored by Lighty from the start of his career up until his death]y has offered up a top legal team to further investigate the death of Lighty.
According to allhiphop.com:
50 Cent and Chris Lighty’s family have hired attorney Scott E. Leemon of Leemon Law and private investigator Les Levine to look into Chris Lighty’s death, which was ruled a suicide by the New York Medical Examiner. The new investigation will focus on all of the circumstances surrounding Chris Lighty’s death, attorney Scott E. Leemon told AllHipHop.com in a statement.
“I will confirm that I have been asked by Chris’ mother and many of his former clients/business associates/friends (including 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes and Q-TIP) to fully investigate all of the circumstances surrounding his premature death,” Scott E. Leemon told AllHipHop.com.
I really hope that justice in served in this case. Hoping for the best!
