July 28 [14:00 EDT] -- Another salvo was reportedly launched on Friday in the legal battle over the estate of late rapper Eazy-E.
The Associated Press reports that Ruthless Records, Tomica Woods (Eazy-E's widow), and Ronald Sweeney are charging the rapper's former manager, George Heller, with draining excess profits from the rapper in a suit filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court.
The AP reports that the estate claims Heller created a hidden expense account for himself with Ruthless Records funds. The estate also reportedly accuses Heller of taking more than his share of profits from Ruthless, and of failing to share in the company's losses.
Heller himself had reportedly already filed a suit of his own against Ruthless on June 6 claiming that he helped the rapper build Ruthless into a successful label, and consequently was due 20 percent of the company's profits.
