Lil Peep’s Mom Sues, Claims Record Label “Fostered, Promoted and Encouraged” Drug Use

Lil Peep’s Mom Sues, Claims Record Label “Fostered, Promoted and Encouraged” Drug Use

Rapper Lil Peep’s mother is suing his talent company and record label for negligence, breach of contract and wrongful death, according to <i>The New York Times</i>. Liza Womack is suing First Access Entertainment and certain individuals she says “fostered, promoted and encouraged” drug use to control the artist. The rapper, born Gustav Ahr, overdosed on a tour bus and died in 2017. Among other charges, the lawsuit claims Belinda Mercer, tour manager, had a sexual relationship with the rapper and provided him with ketamine. According to Womack’s attorney Paul A. Matiasic, the record label “had the power, they had the influence and control over Gus’s career, and specifically this tour. There are duties associated with having that type of control.” Womack said, “What Gus had to live through is actually horrifying to me, and I’m sure he’s not the only person his age in this situation.”
