*The legal drama over the estate of the late Nate Dogg is still alive and well as the singer’s ex-girlfriend pleads for child support for the former couple’s 17-year-old son Jayden.
Radar Online reports a petition for child support was filed by Jayden’s mother, Shereda Williams, in Los Angeles Superior Court.
In her filing, Shereda stated Jayden is currently 17 and will turn 18 on April 8, 2024. In addition, she mentioned she was granted sole physical custody of Jayden, adding that Nate Dogg was ordered to pay her $4,358 per month in child support in 2006.
Although the court approved Shereda to receive monthly payments of $3,000 in 2013, Shereda revealed a mistake with the court order was made. As a result, she is now at risk of not receiving any more payments.
Shereda is currently pleading with the court to order Nate Dogg’s estate to pay for her child support. Her court battle comes amid another legal situation involving the former Death Row Records artist, who passed away on March 15, 2011, without a will in place.
Before his death, Nate Dogg had six children. At the time of his death, Nate Dogg was married to a woman named LaToya Calvin. Radar Online notes that LaToya nominated herself to be the administrator of Nate Dogg’s estate. Despite the nomination, Nate Dogg’s children are fighting with LaToya over her attempts to take control of the famous father’s finances.
Countering Latoya is Nate Dogg’s son Naijiel Hale, who accused LaToya of being responsible for the car accident that left his father severely injured. As a result of the crash, Naijiel claimed Nate Dogg suffered strokes that eventually led to his death.
Supporting her son’s fight against LaToya is his mother, Rhoda. According to TMZ, it was Rhoda who informed the court that LaToya did not attend Nate Dogg’s funeral.
Court documents surrounding the case reveal the family stating that Nate Dogg filed for divorce 19 days (about 2 and a half weeks) before he died. The couple’s divorce was never finalized, Radar reports.
The family’s legal drama over Nate Dogg’s estate has been going on for years, as far back as 2012, when they revealed the “Regulate” vocalist owned $350,000 worth of real estate. Nate Dogg owed $150,000 on the home. As a result, $200,000 was left to be divided between his children.
Earlier this year, court documents were filed by LaToya, who demanded that a judge allow the sale of Nate Dogg’s music catalog. In the documents, she accused the current administrator of refusing to take offers presented to the estate seriously, Radar Online noted, adding that a judge has yet to rule on the situation.
“No less than 4 parties have expressed interest in purchasing either the entire music catalog or in many cases a percentage of the rights, with management control,” LaToya said.
“The latter option in particular (in addition to full sale options) should be explored, because she is informed and believes it would both yield substantial immediate case for all the heirs, but also involve a better ongoing professional management team which should improve and increase the performance of the remaining unsold income producing shares that are not sold for all the heirs.”
