Daughter of Wu-Tang Clan’s Ol’ Dirty Bastard Says She and Her Six Siblings Haven’t Received Any Money Since His Death

Known to the world as Ol’ Dirty Bastard, the Wu-Tang Clan’s Russell Jones was just Dad to Ashana Jones and his six other children from five different women.

Though Ashana was only 7 years old when Dirty, as friends called him, died of an accidental drug overdose, she recalls him being “an awesome father. I remember going with him to Coney Island, to Grandma’s house, to Universal Studios.” She even had “good relations” with her half-siblings.

But when the rapper unexpectedly passed away in 2004 at age 35, he didn’t leave behind a will — and his offspring are still fighting for their share of his legacy.

“He was young,” ODB’s former manager Jarred Weisfeld told The Post. “You can’t tell somebody who’s 35 to get a will.”

In 2020, Ashana’s mother, Krishana Rucker, received a $500,000 settlement for outstanding child support, dating back to the time of his death. Payments were completed this past February.
