Big Pun’s Wife & Kids Live In A Shelter

Apparently Pun’s wife, Eliza Rios, isn’t living the glamour life. In an interview with Ms. Drama, she divulges about living with her kids in a NYC shelter. Excluding the 116K she recived after Pun passed, she says that she hasn’t recieved any additional royalties. She also says that she hasn’t communicated with Fat Joe nor any “regular industry heads.” Man, can someone page Steve Rifkind?

    She got “help” & “counseling” from Oprah & Sally Jessie Raphael??? Really? and you wonder why you can’t take care of your kids…I guess she didn’t want to work then huh???

  • naima

    so is she saying he abused her? Is that why she said she’s in a shelter..plz sweetheart get a job. even if you were abused that’s no excuse to not go to work….and after the man dies…classy

    WHy don’t women feel compelled to work to feed their kids? Like he’s dead, gone, why is she looking for his friends, or former colleagues to support her? There’s a young cat near my building in NY that I gave a buck to once. Next day after I had one of those days he was on the corner looking for change again after work. And it hit me. I just sat through a bunch of bs all day and dude just expects me to keep donating to his “i don’t want to work” charity. F’ that.

    Whether she wants to work or not she and her kids deserve those royalties. That’s the bottom line. Where are the royalty checks? And Steve Rifkind doesn’t have anything to do with it. He doesn’t even own the catalog anymore. Sony owns it.

    Eliza should be pursuing legal action against Sony to get the money.

  • “FAITH”from the ATL!

    We get our ASS kicked,because we be wanting them NIGGAS to keep taking care of us and when they’re gone we be stuck LOOKING STUPID!!WOMAN your ass up!!

I’m speaking from experience!Stop waitin on the money he earned,go earn you some! I’m only giving TOUGH LOVE LADIES!

  • Twisted

    you’re right but you got to understand that she and her kids have legal rights to that money. at this point the money is being stolen from her kids. and this is a man speaking.

  • It Fuckin Is What It Is

    Rat Joe Needs A Bullet In The Head For Doin Puns Family Like That. That Bitch Ass MotherFucker Has No Problem Takin Props For What Pun Did, And Has No Problem Scoopin Up Puns Cheques. Fuck Him With A Fuckin HIV dick. Puns Records Sold Millions, He Passed, It Aint like He Spent All That Money. His Family Should Be Sittin Comfortable Right Now, Not Livin In A GodDamn Shelter. Regardless Of Whether She Should Be Out Working, She IS Entitled To Every Last Dollar That Pun Ever Made. Matter Fact She Should Be Entitled To Every Dollar Joe Made Because If It Wasnt For Pun, No-One Ever Woulda been lookin For A Rat Joe Record. He Owes Everything He Has To Pun.

    Most rappes make money off touring, and merchandis. Unless your ghostwriting, publishing only going so far. Real talk, after she got that hundred thousand dollar check, she could have took her ass to nursing school, and stashed the rest…Its fucked up she got beat, but she stayed for those beatings and let her kids see that shit. So come on!

  • Fat Joe Killa

  • SOME ONE WHO KNOWS

    SAY WHAT YOU WANT, THERE IS NO WAY I’M GONNA MAKE MILLIONS OFF OF SOMEONE, FROM ALL HIS ALBUMS ,PLUS THE ALBUMS HE WROTE FOR ME, KNOWING I WOULD HAVE NEVER EVER GONE GOLD WITH OUT HIM!!! EVER!

    THEN HE’S DIES AND NOW HIS CHILDREN LIVE IN A SHELTER AND MY REACTION IS THAT’S FUCKED UP.????????

    REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE MOTHER DOSE.

    FOR SOMEONE I CALLED MY “TWIN”,I WOULD NOT LET HIS KIDS LIVE LIKE THAT. FUCK THAT!

    WHO DOSE THAT???

  • zp

    seriously, if puns kids are really living in a shelter, that’s just fucked.

    before pun, fat joe was making half way decent tracks with half way decent lyrics..and really wack ass videos…pun came along, made it cool for big PR man to hold down crossover hip hop, and he put joe on his coat tales, fuck who came first w/ records, who came first w/ the hits is what matters…ask Weezy (BG anyone). still not a playa is 100% the reason fat joe can sell a million records today. and not to mention that when fat joe’s flow is on point now, you alway hear the real heads talk about how he’s channeling pun (“i’m from NY”).

    116,000 check! She needs to get a job. Sorry! I know they might have been living well when Pun was alive. But he’s not anymore. R.I.P. She needs to get a job. Ppl everyday take care of they kids makin less than 30,000 a yr. She got almost 4 times that. I’m sorry but these rappers ain’t gettin all this money like it seems on tv. So when they pass they usually leave they families fucked up. 116K is a lot of money. I’m playin the powerball tommorrow

  • bpayne

    116,000$ aint shit, and pun is still selling records to this day, and theres a new movie coming out about him, she needs to get a lot more money for his music, and some publishing too, thats how he would have wanted it!!!!!!

    This woman is detailing her struggles through an abusive relationship and now a new chapter in her life where she is trying to move on. If any of the previous people who posted have ever owned a home, or settled a deceased person’s estate, they might know that after debts are settled, bills are paid, funeral and other related costs are taken care of, there may not be much left over if at all. Also, as a NY resident, many people don’t have the courage, guidance, or knowledge to seek help. How many of you know of debt counseling programs or assistance in home purchase from the City? This woman went from living a modest lifestyle to one of flamboyance and no one in her husband’s crew apparently was equipped to counsel HIM the then main bread winner on how to take care of his family financially. I commend her for trying to get her kids what is theirs via their father, and the situation that they are in is deplorable, but not uncommon. It takes a min. of $50k/year to not be “working poor” in NYC. The measly $116k is nothing especially if you have kids to feed. I hope that she does what’s necessary to get her kids in a better situation, but would you all have said he same negative things if she were a man? I am basing my comments on this video and general knowledge of Pun’s life. I don’t have all the facts and am no judge or jury.

  • Babygirl8

    She needs to get a damn job or do what she has to do to make ends meet. Im a single mom as well so what makes her more special than I? There are tons of programs (that work) to help people in her situation. Some situations cant be helped but he’s been dead how long? STOP LOOKING FOR HANDOUTS!
