In another case of music industry relationships gone wrong, Ol’Dirty Bastard’s (ODB) widow is suing Wu-Tang Clan over unpaid royalties. According to Complex, Icelene Jones, who is the administrator of ODB’s estate, has officially filed a lawsuit against the legendary Hip-Hop group. She claims that as a founding member of the Wu-Tang Clan, her late husband is owed at least $1 million in royalties. The lawsuit has been filed in the New York Supreme Court and references a recording contract from 1992 that reveals that founding members ODB, Ghostface Killah, GZA, and Raekwon were to receive equal amounts of 50 percent of royalties from the group’s catalog.
