50 Cent Hires High-Powered Team To Investigate Chris Lighty's Death - Fox 5 News Exclusive Report (Video)

MyFoxNY reports that at the request of Chris Lighty's grieving mother, superstar artist 50 Cent has brought in a high-powered team to investigate the hip hop mogul's death, sources confirmed.

Fox 5 News has obtained a copy of his will, which leaves everything to his wife. What is on page 3 is raising eyebrows. Except for a fund set aside for his children, the will says if he is survived by his wife, "I give my entire residuary estate, real and personal, to her."

One of the country's top attorneys, Arthur Aidala, said the will gives his wife a lot of power.

Lighty managed the careers of superstars like 50 Cent and Diddy and orchestrated multimillion-dollar deals. He died last month allegedly from a self-inflicted gunshot wound after an argument with his wife.

The will, drafted in 2007, provides a separate $1.6 million trust fund for his children.

Aidala said establishing that trust shows great care and planning, especially for a man who at that time was only in his late thirties.

Lighty was laid to rest earlier this month after a star-studded sendoff. But many of those who knew him still can't it believe it was a suicide, as the New York City Medical Examiner ruled.

Dr. Michael Baden, a former New York City chief medical examiner, was called in by the family for a second autopsy. The results so far are inconclusive.

Baden told Fox 5 that the cause of his death, by gunshot, is not in question, but he is waiting for other test results.

Sources also said Lighty was not deep in a bottomless financial hole and that he had just secured a world tour for 50 Cent for next year.

Newskull you sound like a dimwit... Doing too much? that was a close friend beyond the business. Your telling me that if you had the resources and money to look into your friend dying you wouldn't if you didn't agree with the coroners report? 50 was merely stating a situation where chris needed immediate funds but paid it back. That was to prove he wasn't in financial debt as it was falsely reported...Newskull is fitting your brain clearly hasn't developed..still got amniotic fluid pouring out of your ears..easy

Oh come on!!!...I think 50 is doing too much... even expose the fact that he loan Chris money on radio and all that was not right to me... that was the first step into family business... 50 should not go deeper in it?... Family business is still family business, you don't want to get caught in the drama...

How stupid to think that, when you are worth millions that you kill or contract out a hit. Not use investigators to find facts.
