The mother to Lil Peep has reportedly filed a lawsuit against his former management and tour company, over his death, two years after.
According to a report by TMZ published today (Oct. 8), the late Lil Peep’s mother, Liza Womack filed a lawsuit on Monday against First Access Entertainment, which facilitated Lil Peep last tour before his death, as well as the people associated with the company and his management team. Legal documents detail Womack’s claims, which date back to early 2017 during The Peep Show tour
Peep’s mother says that her son’s management allegedly “normalized and even encouraged” the use of controlled drugs and illegal substances throughout his tour. She cites an instance from her son’s tour stop in London, where his management allegedly gifted 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 Lil Peep was provided with Xanax, Ketamine and other drugs.
On one tour stop in May 2017, Peep’s mom asserts that he was “barely able to communicate, let alone perform, due to his use of drugs” during his show in Los Angeles. Although he was visibly in a “comatose-like state,” Womack claims Peep’s managers let him perform.
Womack also claims her son wanted to quit the tour due to the fact that he was physically and mentally exhausted, but they allegedly denied his pleas and continued to make him perform while giving him drugs up until his last show in El Paso, Texas, before he was found dead of an overdose in his tour bus.
His mother alleges one of his 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. So far, Peep’s former management and tour company have not commented on her claims
