Lil Peep’s mother, Liza Womack, has reportedly filed a lawsuit against First Access Entertainment and the people associated with the company. According to TMZ, Womack claims during The Peep Show Tour, management “normalized” and “even encouraged” the use of controlled substances beginning in 2017.
She says during a tour stop in London, the late rapper was given a bottle of pills as a gift from one of his managers and the “rampant” drug use continued through the Come Over When You’re Sober Tour.
The docs reportedly state Peep was regularly supplied with Xanax, Ketamine and a multitude of other substances while on the road.
During another tour stop in Los Angeles, Womack alleges he was “barely able to communicate, let alone perform, due to his use of drugs” and despite being in a “comatose-like state,” his managers allowed him to perform.
Womack also claims her son wanted to quit the tour, but his managers allegedly ignored his pleas and “pushed [Peep] onto stage after stage in city after city, plying and propping” him up with drugs.
Before Peep’s death, he did a final show in El Paso, Texas where his mother says manager Belinda Mercer encouraged him to take “an excessive amount of Xanax” so he could cancel the show and collect insurance money for being “sick.” Womack also says Mercer had a sexual relationship with Peep.
Womack says the lack of concern for her son’s well-being ultimately led to his overdose death on November 15, 2017. His official cause of death was listed as a combination of fentanyl and alprazolam (Xanax). He was 21 years old at the time of his passing.
She’s seeking unspecified damages.
