Nearly two years after his death, Lil Peep’s mom has filed a lawsuit against the rapper’s former management and tour company.
Peep’s mother, Liza Womack, filed her lawsuit on Monday (October 7) against First Access Entertainment, who were behind his last tour before his death, as well as the people associated with the company and his management team.
Womack says that her son’s management allegedly “normalized and even encouraged” the use of controlled drugs and illegal substances during the tour. She noted as an example, how, during her son’s tour stop in London, his management presented the rapper with a full bottle of pills at a restaurant during dinner. From that point on, her son’s rapid drug use continued into his final Come Over When You’re Sober Tour. During his time on the road, Womack claims Peep was provided with Xanax, Ketamine and other drugs.
Peep’s mom says that, during a 2017 tour stop in Los Angeles, he was “barely able to communicate, let alone perform, due to his use of drugs.”She says that he was allowed to perform despite being visibly in a “comatose like state.”
Womack also claims that her son wanted to quit the tour due to physical and mental exhaustion, but his request was denied and he continued to be plied with drugs up until his final show in El Paso, Texas, after which he was found dead from an overdose on his tour bus.
Womack even alleges that one of Peep’s managers, Belinda Mercer, told him to take “an excessive amount of Xanax” to get sick and then insurance would cover the cancellation of the show. Peep’s mom also claims Mercer had a sexual relationship with the rapper.
Womack is suing for unspecified damages.
