The legacy of late rapper Nate Dogg continues to be overshadowed by the battle amongst his family over the sale of his California home.
Details of the family’s current internal woes have surfaced online this week.
According to court docs — obtained by TMZ — the estate administrator agreed to sell the house last month for $340K. But we’re told some family members are trying to stop the deal because the administrator wants to use the money to pay off Nate’s debts, leaving them with little … and they want more. We broke the story … Nate’s will provided that his 6 kids get the house, but 2 days after his death in March, 2011, the bank moved to foreclose because he’d fallen behind on his mortgage. Now it’s up to a judge whether the sale goes through. (TMZ)
Last year, two women tried to prevent each other from scooping up additional money from Dogg’s estate.
Two of Nate Dogg’s baby mamas are trading legal blows over child support payments … with one trying to block the other’s attempt to get more money from his estate … TMZ has learned. According to docs filed this week in Los Angeles Superior Court, Rhoda Mouton is asking a judge to deny Omena Norris‘ request for an increase in support for the child she had with Nate back in 2006. In the docs, Mouton (who has a teenaged son with Nate) claims Norris lied in her filing when she said her son received no Social Security payments from Nate’s estate … arguing that Norris and her son receive $694/month.

When hip-hop singer Nate Dogg died last year, he didn’t have his affairs in order. There was no will and no instructions as to how things should be divided amongst his children and other surviving relatives. just as a family feud started brewing, a lawyer was hired to handle the legal wrangling. According to documents filed in L.A. Superior Court, Nate Dogg’s Pomona, California home was appraised and said to be worth $350,000. When Nate Dogg passed, he still owed $150k in mortgage payments. The documents also name Nate’s six children – 2 boys and 4 girls – who will inherit their father’s estate. Along with the $200k in real estate, the children will get all of Nate Dogg’s money made off his music catalog. (Black America Web)
Recently, West Coast rap veteran Warren G named Nate SOHH Underrated.
“I think Nate [Dogg] was underrated as far as being a “song writer” because a lot of people didn’t know he could write songs better than he could write a hook. And a lot of people thought, “Okay, well, let’s just have Nate sing the hook.” But with me and him, we would do a “song.” He was really singing. People can hear that on our records and G Funk Classics. They heard that. He wrote songs and people don’t understand that.” (SOHH Underrated)
