George Clinton Accused of Turning Band Members Into Addicts and Taking Drug Fees Out of Earnings

*George Clinton is facing accusations that he turned his Parliament/Funkadelic band members into drug fiends. He supposedly did it by constantly offering them bumps of cocaine from his “long fingernail.”

Clinton is being sued by the estate of keyboardist George “Bernie” Worrell Jr., who died in 2016. Worrell co-wrote and performed on a bunch of Clinton’s songs (including Parliament and Funkadelic) in 70s and 80s. His widow claims Worrell and Clinton agreed on a deal regarding royalties that dates back to 1976.

“Clinton has a history of fraud, deceit, and delinquency when it comes to the performance of contracts that he has entered into on behalf of himself or his companies,” Worrell’s widow claims in the lawsuit.

The Blast notes that to help make her case, the widow brings up a documentary with other band members who point the finger at Clinton as the one who supplied them with drugs and then took the payment(s) out of their earnings.

“Apparently, Clinton did this despite many band members not wanting drugs and needing money to provide for their families. Drug use was encouraged and pushed by Clinton. Another band member Grady Thomas recounts how, “[Clinton] had a long fingernail. And he would go around and…, ‘hey man, here. Have some.’”

Here’s more via The Blast:

The documents claim Clinton used his ability as the de facto “drug supplier” and the near constant drug use on tour as a means of controlling the band members and justifying retaining the majority of money received from both royalties and live performances.”

She also argues that, “Clinton’s drug culture caused many of the band members to become addicts who had to seek treatment for their addiction later in life.”

Bernie’s widow is adamant that many “members of the band members never recovered and drug addiction cost them their lives. Clinton manipulated the band members with drugs and promises which were never kept.”

The estate is suing for an unspecified amount of damages.
