Eazy-E’s son says his late father was "debilitated" and "under the heavy influence of medication" when his widow had him sign a will that transferred all his property, including Ruthless Records, over to her.

Lil Eazy-E (Eric Wright Jr.) and his stepmom, Tomica Woods-Wright, are currently in the middle of dueling lawsuits over the rights to Eazy-E and Ruthless Records. Woods-Wright sued Wright over his use of the of the Ruthless Records name and N.W.A. and Wright filed a suit of his own in response.

In newly filed court documents, Wright claims Woods-Wright married Eazy in "a death-bed marriage" to his father on March 14, 1995 (Eazy died less than two weeks later). He calls the marriage into question saying the marriage license was filed "confidentially" and did not include Eazy-E’s handwritten signature.

Wright claims on the same day "of the purported marriage," Eazy-E, while in "a debilitated state" and "under heavy medication" was presented with "a last will and testament and a purported declaration of trust" drafted by an attorney under the direction of Woods-Wright that created The Wright Trust and transferred all of the rapper's property, including his interest in Ruthless Records to, Woods-Wright.
