Veteran personal manager Gerald E. Heller is suing the estate of the late rapper Eazy-E (Eric Wright), Ruthless Records, and estate co-executors Ronald Sweeney and Tomica Woods-Wright for alleged unpaid management fees. The suit, filed June 6 in Los Angeles Superior Court, states that Heller has not been paid in accordance with the oral agreement established in 1987 between Wright and Heller for deals negotiated by Heller on behalf of Wright and Ruthless Records, later incorporated as Comptown Records Inc. The suit seeks damages of at least $10 million, a reimbursement of legal fees, and a full accounting of all funds collected by the defendants.
