Heavy D’s brother has filed legal papers to gain control of the late rapper’s estate.
Floyd Myers, who previously served as the hip-hop star’s business manager, claims the Now That We Found Love hitmaker wrote a will in 1999 which left everything to his sibling.
He reportedly lost the document years ago, but Myers has since found his copy and is now asking a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge to appoint him executor of Heavy D’s estate, which included $320,000 in listed assets.
However, Floyd’s lawyer tells TMZ.com the court request is simply a formality to clear the title on a condominium the brothers co-owned so it can be sold off.
Heavy D, real name Dwight Arrington Myers, died from a pulmonary embolism outside his Los Angeles home in November, 2011, aged 44 – before he could update his will to include his daughter, who was born in 2000.
