AceShowbiz - XXXTENTACION's mother Cleopatra Bernard is secretly battling his ex and the late rapper's father Dwayne Onfroy in court. According to The Blast, the parents to the slain star are fighting over their son's estate.
Court records show on February 18, Cleopatra filed a proof of service against Dwayne and served him with some sort of legal notice. The exact reason of their dispute, however, is unclear as the majority of the estate court filings are sealed.
In 2019, Dwayne showed up to court for a hearing to ask to be involved in the handling of his son's estate. He notified the a judge that he would like to be included in decisions about his son's music, business and money, but did not fully explain the reasoning for him filing court documents.
On the same day she filed the legal notice to her ex, XXXTENTACION's mom Cleopatra filed a notice to creditors who believe they are owed money from the estate. Cleopatra is also fighting a separate legal battle with music producer James "Jimmy" Duval.
The producer claimed to be owed $2 million from the late rapper over unpaid royalties, but Cleopatra believes he is not entitled. Cleopatra demands the $2 million claim be dismissed and demanding attorney fees from the producer.
XXXTENTACION and Jimmy were close friends and worked on music together, including the song "Look at Me", prior to his death on June 18, 2018. They also had collaborated on another song that has not been released. When asked about their unreleased music, Jimmy told Billboard, "We didn't even finish it. I don't know. I don't even know whose decision that would be which is kind of interesting."
In a separate case, Cleopatra has settled a custody battle with XXXTENTACION's baby mama Jenesis Sanchez over her grandson Gekyume Onfroy. According to court records, the two parties reached a "Confidential Mediated Settlement" and a "Irrevocable Trust for Gekyum Onfroy" was established to benefit the 1-year-old boy.
