Default Ol' Dirty Bastard's widow is at it again


ESTATE PLAN: Icelene Jones (center), with (from left) Taniqua, Bar-Son and Shaquita, her children with the late Ol' Dirty Bastard, is allegedly scheming against his other kids.


Ol' Dirty Bastard's widow and a record producer are scheming to keep the star's ex-girlfriend and five of his kids from the millions his new album could generate, the widow's former lawyer alleges.


Steven Mandel claims ODB's "misguided" widow, Icelene Jones, and producer Richard Flanzer plan to ink an "extremely restrictive" deal under which all money created by the estate would go to Flanzer, who would then decide how to divvy up the bucks.

The potential windfall is from the upcoming release of the rapper's "A Son Unique," a posthumous album featuring Missy Elliot, Macy Gray and members of his former hit group, Wu-Tang Clan. The album is set to hit stores Nov. 7, two years after Ol' Dirty Bastard, born Russell Jones, collapsed and died while working on the album.

Mandel's allegations are included in a Sept. 6 motion he filed asking to be released as Icelene's lawyer. The alleged deal, he claims, would leave ODB's ex-gal pal, her child, his four other kids, their four mothers, his former manager and even his own mom in the lurch. But Icelene claims the legal eagle, whom she fired in August, is a bumbling incompetent whose mismanagement of her husband's estate has left her and their three kids "virtually destitute." In court papers, Jones says that Mandel failed to collect royalties, pay out money or file the proper estate paperwork.
"Since my husband's death, my children and I have been virtually destitute, waiting on the unfulfilled promises of Mr. Mandel to administer the estate," she said. She also said the lawyer stood to collect 25 percent of all estate revenues and was being "disingenuous" to the court about his deal.

Flanzer denied his involvement: "There is no scheme. My role has been solely to try to straighten this out. I have no interest in the album whatsoever."

Since the allegations over the estate surfaced, ODB's mom, Cherry Jones, and manager, Jarred Weisfeld, plan to challenge Icelene as administrator of the estate. Together the two revived the rapper's career after he got out of prison in 2002, getting him a new record deal, clothing line and reality shows.

"B ottom line is that the estate is not being taken care of properly," Weisfeld said.

Their lawyer, Mark Frey, said: "[Cherry and Weisfeld] were his co-mangers, and Cherry is very concerned that all the grandkids get their fair share, not just Icelene." Weisfeld scoffed at Icelene's claim of poverty. "Is she destitute? No. She's got a BMW and a Range Rover. I gave her kids $10,000 out of my own pocket last Christmas."
