Liza Womack, the mother of deceased rapper Lil Peep, has sued the late rapper's managers for negligence, breach of contract, and wrongful death.

 According to the New York Times, the lawsuit was filed on Tuesday and obtained by Variety.

Peep who died of a drug overdose of fentanyl and xanax in November of 2017, was reportedly "stressed, overwhelmed, burnt out, exhausted and physically unwell." Peep's mother says that he was an "impressionable kid" and that his management coerced him "onto stage after stage in city after city, plying and propping" him up with illegal drugs.

Lil Peep earned his highest-charting single on the Billboard Hot 100 in October 2018 with "Falling Down," featuring XXXTentacion, which peaked at 13th. The single was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) on November 8, 2018, making it Peep's first gold certification. His second studio album, Come Over When You're Sober, Pt. 2, was released on November 9, 2018, and debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200, making it Peep's first US top 10 album.
