Jerry Heller passed away on Friday at the age of 75, due to a car accident as a result of having what’s been described as “a medical emergency” while driving. (His attorney says the family believes it to be a heart attack.) The former manager of N.W.A. had been in the spotlight a lot more in the last year, after the success of 2015’s Straight Outta Compton film. However, he was not happy with the way he was portrayed, and had filed a $110 million lawsuit for defamation of character against the film’s producers, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and the Estate of Eazy-E. It was dismissed over the summer, however, the judge did say Heller might have a point as it pertained to two scenes, but he had to prove the interaction with Cube didn’t happen and that it was written into the script with malice.
