Drakeo The Ruler's Mom To Sue Over Her Son's Murder

Drakeo The Ruler's mother says she is taking legal action after her son was fatally stabbed at a Los Angeles music festival.

"He was hit in his neck. I saw him when I went to the hospital. They said it's a homicide, so I wasn't able to hug him or kiss him or anything like that. I had to look at him through a window. I need this to be out there. I need people to know. And I do want justice for my son. And I do believe that justice will be served. I will not rest until justice is served," Darrylene Corniel told Rolling Stone.

"We plan to sue. This happened backstage at an event. Someone has to be held accountable," she says of the Once Upon a Time in L.A. festival.

"They let all these people in, and you're not supposed to have all these people backstage. And your security is supposed to be in place. The whole program should have been orchestrated a lot better than what it was. And there should have been more protection. Even if you have metal detectors, even if you pat them down, you let those people come in there. You had more people come in than you were supposed to. And you allowed them to jump my son. You didn't protect my son."
