Almost two years after his death, Lil Peep's mother is suing his management team and the company behind his final tour with supplying the emo-rapper with drugs that led to his tragic death.
Lil Peep's mother is suing the late rapper's management company over his death.
Liza Womack, mother of Lil Peep, today filed a lawsuit accusing her son's manager, Sarah Stennett, and employees of her company of negligence, breach of contract and wrongful death in connection with the rapper's death from a drug overdose in November of 2017.
Womack says during a stop in London, her son was gifted a bottle of pills by one of his managers during a group dinner. During his time on the road, Womack claims Peep was provided with Xanax, Ketamine and other drugs. Womack is claiming that Lil Peep's agency, First Access Entertainment, pushed the rapper to perform non-stop while "fostering, promoting, and encouraging" the rapper's drug habit.
Her lawsuit also claims Ahr requested to temporarily halt touring because he was "anxious, stressed, overwhelmed, burnt out, exhausted, and physically unwell", but his managers "ignored" his request and urged him to continue to perform on "stage after stage" after they were done "plying and propping him up" medication and illegal drugs. Peep's mom also claims Mercer had a sexual relationship with the rapper.
It's unclear if he took Mercer's alleged suggestion, but he did perform that night, and it turned out to be his final show.
Lil Peep died in tragic circumstances in 2017, overdosing on a tour bus in Tucson, Arizona just hours before he was due to play a gig in the city. Peep's cause of death was listed asa combinationof fentanyl and alprazolam (Xanax).
Womack is seeking damages, attorney's fees, prejudgment interest and the costs of the suit. "However, the claim that First Access Entertainment, any of its employees, or Chase Ortega, or anyone else under our auspices was somehow responsible for, complicit in, or contributed to his death is categorically untrue".
