Lil Peep’s mom, Liza Womack, has actually settled her wrongful death suit versus First Access Entertainment, ending their multi-year legal fight.
The legal fight over obligation for Lil Peep’s deadly drug overdose at age 21 has actually ended more than 5 years after it started. According to a notification submitted in Los Angeles County Superior Court, the rap artist’s mom, Liza Womack, has actually settled her wrongful death claim versus First Access Entertainment (FAE). FAE is the management and label services business that dealt with Lil Peep, whose genuine name was Gustav Elijah Åhr.
According to Womack’s attorney, Paul Matiasic, the settlement terms were private. The court filing reveals that the settlement was dated February 14, while a trial was set up to start on March 8.
” Liza has actually been indefatigable in her pursuit of justice for her kid,” stated Matiasic “With the conclusion of the lawsuits, her focus will move to shepherding his tradition and continuing to launch his music for the pleasure of his fans.”
” Today, Gus’s music got home,” starts a declaration on Lil Peep’s social networks pages. “From this day forward, his music will remain in the care of his mom and bro and nobody else.”
Womack at first submitted the suit in October 2019– almost 2 years after her child’s death– declaring wrongful death, neglect, and breach of agreement versus FAE, supervisor Bryant Ortega, and trip supervisor Belinda Mercer.
In January 2022, texts and files unsealed in court revealed Womack’s legal representatives asserting the “inefficient, deadly state” of the trip throughout which Peep passed away in2017 In February, Judge Teresa Beaudet ruled that the case versus FAE and Mercer move forward while dismissing the majority of the claims versus Ortega.
Court files in 2021 reveal that Mercer rejected any participation causing Peep’s death, while FAE formerly called Womack’s suit “groundless and offending.” Ortega has actually called the claims versus him “unwarranted, misdirected, and without benefit.”
Lil Peep launched just one studio album throughout his life time, Come Over When You’re Sober, Pt. 1 The follow up record, Come Over When You’re Sober, Pt. 2, and the collection album, Everybody’s Everything, were shared posthumously. Womack has actually just recently been re-releasing her child’s self-released product, consisting of Crybaby, Live Forever, and Hellboy
