In a lawsuit against George Clinton, the estate of the late George “Bernie” Worrell Jr. is claiming that Worrell and Clinton had a deal on royalties they agreed on back in 1976, as well as accusing the Parliament-Funkadelic frontman of turning his bandmates into drug addicts.
In a report from The Blast, Worrell’s widow claimed that Clinton manipulated his bandmates by giving them drugs in place of money, alleging that he retained the majority of money received from both royalties and live performances. The estate is suing for an unspecified amount of damages.
“Clinton has a history of fraud, deceit, and delinquency when it comes to the performance of contracts that he has entered into on behalf of himself or his companies,” the widow said in the suit.
