Despite his death being ruled a suicide by the medical examiner, the circumstances of Hip-Hop mogul Chris Lighty’s untimely passing left many skeptical about its cause. Now 50 Cent, at the behest of the late “Baby Chris’s” mother, has hired a “high-powered” investigative team to look into his former manager’s death.
Fox 5 News has obtained a copy of Lighty’s will, and all his worldly possessions have been left to his wife, Veronica Lighty.Although Chris Lighty was in the process of moving out of the Riverdale home he shared with his wife and was reportedly in an argument with her moments before he allegedly shot himself in the head, his entire estate has been left to Veronica. “I give my entire residuary estate, real and personal, to her,” reads the will. The last will and testament was created in 2007 and also leaves a $1.6 million trust fund to his children.
Although they were reportedly in the midst of a divorce, Monica Lighty has stated that she called off the proceeding as a Father’s Day gift. Lighty’s family hired Dr. Michael Baden to conduct another autopsy before the Violator Management founder was laid to rest, but so far results beyond his being killed by a gunshot wound to the head have been inconclusive. Baden is awaiting further test result.
With all these conflicting opinions (the couple’s relationship has been describe as volatile by many different source), things may start to get uglier. Nevertheless, Rest in Peace Chris Lighty.
