Ol' Dirty Bastard's Widow Hits Rock The Bells With Cease & Desist

Remember that feeling when you got all excited that Hologram Ol' Dirty Bastard would be preforming at Rock The Bell just like Hologram 2Pac did at Coachella? And you were all like, "FUCK YEAH!!! ZUUUUUU!!!" 

Well just forget that feeling completely because now there's some internal drama within the ODB estate about the whole thing.

ODB's widow, Icelene Jones—who is the administrator of ODB's estate and claims to be the sole controller of Ol' Dirty Bastard's lyrics, performances, and likeness—has filled a cease and desist against Rock The Bells. 

“I am disappointed that Rock the Bells would not contact me directly about the use of my husband’s image," said Icelene Jones, in a statement. "I am looking forward to talking to Wu-Tang about this matter and coming up with a positive solution in order to bring my husband to the stage once again.”

News of Icelene Jones' disappointment comes after ODB's mother, Cherry Jones, expressed approval of the ODB hologram.

All the drama aside, can you imagine being married to ODB? That had to be quite the adventure.
