Sly Stone Victory

Legendary psychedelic funk star, Sly Stone, just scored $5 million thanks to a L.A. jury, which ruled the singer was done wrong by former manager, Jerry Goldstein, who pilfered his fortune.

When Sly was on skidrow, his former manager allegedly convinced him to sign over all his royalties to a company the manager picked … “for tax reasons”. Sly says the manager assured him he’d be protected.

But Sly says the manager fleeced him, and apparently the jury agreed. The company that got the royalties must pay the frontman of Sly & the Family Stone $2.5 MIL. The manager, Jerry Goldstein, must ante up $2.45 MIL. And the lawyer who worked with Goldstein has to kick in 50K.

Sly Stone has been destitute with severe drug problems, and for the last few years … living out of his van.

          • That’s you clowning, I am old school baby and I will remember anything in a minute. Gotta get a good laugh in anytime I can. But I pray he will get himself together and squander his money wisely.

            • SHIT DAT NIGGA GONNA BLOW ALL HIS FORTUNE ON CRACK ,…HE GONNA BE A RICH BUM ,…HE AINT GONNA INVEST IN NOTHING BUT A GLASS DIK !
              YES MAIA LAUGHING WITH YOU IZ ALWAYS FUN , IM NOT CLOWNING I DIDNT POST THIS POST- SLAVE PIC UP THERE , LOL!

  2. Oh dear. He is not well. I hope someone in his family takes control of this money and get him cleaned up. We need to pray for him. Jesus!

  3. sly been crazy for years.

    remember when he said he called the police on himself because he was caught breaking in his own hoise.

    patricia banks wrote a book bout sly and larry graham, she said when sly get high he used to get his gun and start shooting at everybodt around him.

  4. Sly Stone was recently scheduled to do a show in Oakland CA his hometown. I have not heard of any of the reviews but hopefully this money will get him back on his feet.

  5. This pic of him is horrifying. Drugs can do a number on a person. I hope that there is someone in his corner who can be trusted to be a guardian to make sure his money is put away so he won’t smoke it up.

    • @anon12:37 I’m pretty sure they wolves are already lined up to help themselves to his settlement money and get him drugged up again to rob him and keep him in the state he is in now. What happened to his band mates and family and friends? Funny how when you’re on top, everybody is down with you, when the fame and money is gone, so are the “friends.” That must a messed up life to live. I will be praying for him.

  6. Goldstein,Goldberg,Rubenstein and Silverstein are all fakeJoo names that anyone in entertainment industry should keep away from because they’re the most bloodsucking evil individual you’d ever mwmwet.When you spot or meet anyone of these names run for the Hills.

  7. Black Men Who Mix Themselves With White Women And Drugs Are Asking For Trouble
    Too Many Black Men Have Fallen By The Waist Side, Because Of Drugs And White Women

    Not Saying Black Women Are Better But Black Women Wouldn’t Allow Their Black Men To Rome The Streets
    Looking Like A Dirty Tramp, Like White Women Do

    Too Many Washed Up Black Rock Star Have Married White Women, Their Either Poor Or Coked Out

    • Well Slash from Guns n Roses is doing pretty well.
      I can’t think of another black rocker who married a ww right off hand tho.

      • @Anonymous

        Slash Is Married To White Woman Like Most Mixed Men Do, He’s Half Black It Doesn’t Count
        There Are A Lot Of Black Singer Who Date Or Marry White Women

        Once The Fame And Money Goes Then White Women Will Leave Them, Is Common Don’t Forget Sly Was Married To A White Women!!

        • Since when does biracial not count? Everyone was saying that Rashida Jones is black no matter what she may think, but now Slash who has a black mother and calls himself black isn’t? That sounds like a real double standard there.

          • Rashida is black.
            I bet her birth certificate says black. Driver’s license too. Maybe even her passport.
            She’d have to claim black when applying o school’s, especially if she ever used her dad’s name to get ahead.
            You’re daddy’s black, but you are not?

            Slash is black. His mama is black, so he is black.
            My mama is black.
            I am black.

    • Being with a white women is so fun and exilirating it’s almost worth it, Most people will never get to experience the times that Sly had

  8. $2.5 million dollars is chump change compared to the amount of money hollywood stole from Sly Stone. Let’s hope and pray George Clinton can win back all o fthe money hollywood stole from him.

    • It is chump change but, I bet if he uses his head and doesn’t overdo the drug thing, he will have enough to make it the rest of life, I mean, by the looks of him I wouldn’t think he’ll live to 80(I mean, I hope he do, but still…)

  9. The Hollywood industry was built off the exploitation, drugging and abuse of black celebrities. Sly Stone’s tragic story is one of several examples of the hollywood mafia making hundreds of millions of dollars off a extraordinary talented black man.

    Remeber, Michael Jackson was highly educated on the business side of the music industry; the hollywood mafia eventually killed him!

    • Sly, George and MJ were all voracious drug takers. If you are going to guard your assets and fortune from bloodsucking advisers, attorneys and accountants, it would behoove one to keep a clear head. It’s difficult to do due diligence when you are hoovering 5 lines of Peruvian marching powder every hour on the hour.
      I think Sly must be some sort of freak of nature, because he has done as many drugs during my lifetime as Jimi, Michael and Ll Wayne put together. And yet they are either dead (or having seizures regularly) but Sly soldiers on. True he doesn’t look good, but damn! My mom said that back in the seventies people thought he would OD any day. He must have some sort of angel looking over him for real.

      • sly has a high tolerance.

        Hendrix was gonna die anyway all the drugs he was taken.

        sly outlived rick james, jerry Garcia, Michael Jackson, ike turner, and whitney.

  10. He made some very good music back in the day. I wish him well.
    But, DANG, somebody somewhere need to make sure he don’t get all that $$$ stole again.
    They is an old sayin’ “A fool and his money are soon parted.” And, as we all know, Sly have been a BIG fool in the past.

  11. I would wipe my ass with $2.5 million dollars. Still got the shaft by the bs jury…Where’s The Rest?

  12. bobby Womack said him and sly missed a concert saying they was smoking crack in the limo all night.

    George recently wrote how him, sly, and david ruffin would make crack runs in the early 80’s.

        • Vomit….I can’t really reconcile such a vile pervert with one quoting bible verses and claiming to be righteous. Busted again SB/ Glok or whatever you came as today. Plus your one-off supporter you always have co-signing yourself. Stay winning freakbwoy.

            • Bitch don’t you do the same troll , and wasn’t he nice to you up top encouraging you to keep your troll name you crazy bitch !lol

            • Lmao. But he can’t maintain their presence for more than one random post. It must be difficult being Glok/ SB/ Fleece/ Cindy/ Phillymofo and all the one-off co-signers and time consuming.

            • Right and I guess you forgot his latest name too, “Lovest love” riiight, save it bitch you been exposed and you cant lay off that man dick can you ?

  13. Damn Freebase is the damn devil I watched Rick James Unsung episode and members of the stone city band said it was Sly who turned Rick on to freebase. Damn shame hopefully he will take his money go to rehab repent and redeem himself before it’s too late.
