George Clinton is being accused of turning Parliament/Funkadelic band members into drug addicts. Supposedly George did it by constantly offering them bumps of cocaine from his “long fingernail.” George 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 George Clinton’s songs for both Parliament and Funkadelic in the 70s and 80s. His widow claims Worrell and George Clinton agreed on a deal regarding royalties that dates back to 1976. Bernie Worrell’s widow brings up a documentary with other band members saying George Clinton supplied them with drugs and then took the payment(s) out of their earnings. The lawsuit says “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.’” 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.
