Big Pun's widow sues Fat Joe for shared royalties

The widow of rapper Fat Joe's protege Big Pun has slapped the Lean Back hitmaker with a lawsuit, alleging he has reneged on a deal he made with her over song royalties.

Liza Rios claims Fat Joe agreed to split the profits from Big Pun's songs with her after her husband died in 2000, but she hasn't seen a penny for years.


In documents obtained by TMZ.com, she claims she has seen nothing since 2005, even though Fat Joe continued to release several Big Pun projects.


She is demanding over $1 million (GBP625,000).
