VIDEO FAB: Big Pun's Widow, Stephon Marbury, & Maxwell


Big Pun's widow just did an interview talking about how she's living in a shelter and has no money. She talked about this years ago after he died, but apprently the situation hasn't gotten much better. "We're in a city shelter," Rios said in an interview. "It's been very hard for them [the children] to transition. After Pun passed I didn't receive a lot of money. I received $160,000 from publishing. The house I was paying mortgage [on] was my husband's. He bought the house and it wasn't paid out. The five years I was living there I spent over $120,000 just on mortgage [payments]. Then you [have] the kids, and the food, and the clothes and legal fees...when there's no money coming in, there's just money [going] out." Rios also talked about her physically and emotionally abusive relationship with her late husband. "It's through the grace of God that I've survived," she said. "I never knew what domestic violence was until I was in it and even when I was in it I still didn't know what was going on. I thought it was just me I didn't know that it was happening with so many women." And here's Fat Joe's response:

Drama!
I don't know WTF was going on here but apparently Stephon Marbury needs some Jesus in his life. He's been wilin' out on UStream tv all week. And last night's session was Pleasure P'ish. Check it. by the way, the actual song he was dancing to was a Chris Brown song. The uploader just dubbed over it with the Barbie song. In more fab news, check out Maxwell's brand new video for my fave track "Bad Habits" when you read the rest...

Loves it.

Are Pun and Joe brothers

Are Pun and Joe brothers 4real?? I didn't look at the clip. But... if they are..... I would not let my niece and nephews live in no damn shelter... If something happened to my brother and his wife could not pull it together..I would look out for my blood(the kids) as long as I had to.

Foley: Sorry but I’m gonna

Foley: Sorry but I’m gonna believe Fat Joe on this. She’s useless and expects to sit on her ass and collect Money. When Pun died she should’ve stepped her game up and said “boom, let me see what I can do now that we’re in some shit so I can get this paper rolling on a constant basis” She set herself up for that one. Now there could be a link missing but homegirl, tatts aren’t free so you def was spending money on that..and you could’ve cashed in his jewels and what not. She has to work, plain and simple. They cannot support you forever because you are his wife. They tried and you failed miserably. Get it together for not even for yourself but for your kids!! Laziness is what landed her in a shelter.Stephon, cut the shit out loser ass dude. Like that shit is not even funny dude, people are clowning you and these GM’s and Teams are not even gonna mess with you if you keep this shit up. Smdh. If she was a cuter more spanish looking latina,She could sit on her ass... cause at least 3-4 niggas would have brought her and the kids a little 120,000 house somewhere. Also I don't belive that she just want to sit on her ass and collect money.... It was a shock to her when Pun died, not to mention her emotional state before that.

me: People aren’t telling

me: People aren’t telling Toya and all the other baby mama’s living off the strength of their babies father’s with books, reality shows, etc. to go to school & get a job. After living a certain lifestyle many of them just aren’t used to a typical 9-5. Unfortunatley Liza’s look isn’t the type that would have folks banging down the door to offer her a reality show. If she looked more like a video chick, she definitely wouldn’t be living in a shelter right now. Shallow, but true Nobody's asking them to get a 9-5 because their baby daddies are still ALIVE to support them. I feel bad for her but as mentioned by other posters, she should have spent her money WISELY & gotten a job. She's living in a shelter because her behind is lazy & when you don't have a husband and three kids to feed & clothed, being lazy is NOT an option.

I'm sickened by the fcat that

I'm sickened by the fcat that everyone is writing off the fact that Big Pun's wife was brutally abused for years by him as if it were her fault. She probably didn't leave him because she was scared as hell of him. And for Fat Joe to say he never saw her being treated like that sounds like a damn lie. Then he said she is putting his brother on blast as if it was something wrong with that! So what she should have! Domestic violence is a horrible thing to experience and maybe by telling her story she can prevent another woman from going through it.

So Mean ***CHECK OUT MY BLOG***: ok, i have a prob w/this mrs pun’s story! first off, why did she continue to live in a house she knew she could not afford instead of putting it on the market (housing market was hella good then)??? i have a hard time feeling sorry for that situation…i do feel for her on the abuse…cause i saw the clip…and he fucked her up…bad…although, i did wonder (don’t get mad ya’ll) how she let his fat ass get across the room to even lay a hand on her!! i wish a nigga would!stephon marbury needs to go sit the hell down somewhere…he’s throwed the hell off! For her to be a widow is saw, but if she got 160k, dang, that's more than most folks would get. If he was the breadwinner, and he is gone, why can't she support her children? After all this time? Being an analyst I see situations like this all the time...people, get those insurance policies! Especially if you are unwifed or hell, even if you are...term life is hella cheap, you do not want your children to be a burden on anyone, even worse if they are a burden on family cause when you are gone you don't know if fam will/can/or even want to take in your kids.

I agree with Joe. Pun's wife

I agree with Joe. Pun's wife needs a J-O-B. I'm sorry for her kids because she made bad financial decisions after Pun's death. But there is no reason for them to be in a shelter. Clearly she was intelligent enough to do that interview about her circumstances, so she could have gone on a job interview too. And she's blaming Joe for her situation? Get real. Fat Joe had no obligations to her or her children. She, on the other hand, is supposed to provide for them. Joe was right. People were not going to be paying her bills forever just because she was Pun's wife. Stephon Marbury needs Jesus and a full on exorcism because that has got to be the work of the devil. Real talk.

Write a book or start talking to some kids about domestic abuse. just do not sit around and complain. If Toya or whomever else was doing the same I believe the comments would be similar. You need do do something. But maybe she has we just do not know the whole story.

Whew! Just finished watching

Whew! Just finished watching (and laughing my @ss off) at Stephon and his stripperific dance number. Dude, seriously??? He needs Jesus...and a hobby. And one that requires you leave his bedroom/house from time to time. Crazy shyt happens when he's got too much time on his hands. LMFAO!!!!! No sympathy for Mrs. Pun here. Why the heck didn't they have life insurance? He's kicking her @ss and big as a house! So it was just a matter of time before he either killed her or himelf with his weight and lifestyle. Obviously she wasn't planning on doing anything with her life other than raising their kids and living off his "talent".

Niecy: Pun’s wife has every

Niecy: Pun’s wife has every right to get paid off of her husband’s legacy. Other YT women do it all the time, but “colored” girls are suppose to take all the crap as the wife and still suffer after the husband passes. She has every right to want more for her children and for herself because apparently they sacrificed alot for his career and for their sanity. We need to stop demonizing woman all the time and giving men excuses. apples and oranges. This has nothing to do with color. If she waits, she will find more nights in the shelter. She needs to use common sense and either find work or get another sugar daddy (like what some YT women do) Just sitting on her arse waiting for a paycheck is a grave mistake.

Its sad that he beat her and Im glad that she is alive and well for the children. but why would she stay in a house that she could not afford? She got $160,000 liquid cash, she should have moved her kids from that house and got something more affordable. Then GET A JOB. I say that because she said there was no money coming in but there was money going out. You can't wait on royalities to pay your way, because they can take forever. Work now and use that money to raise your kids and when the money comes, use it. Don't wait around for what you should be expecting. that is messed up with Big Pun did. She should have thrown a hamburger at him. That would have delayed him chasing her and she would have a major headstart in running from him. lol

I’m sorry Mrs. Pun but I

I’m sorry Mrs. Pun but I agree with Fat Joe!!I have no sympathy for you. It’s your own fault that you are broke living in a shelter. Poverty is a “mind set”, you chose poverty. Get off your fat ass get a job or a trade and get money management skills ASAP. Change your mind set and you will change your life. Stop waiting on a hand out damnit!!!!

Stephon needs psychiatric

Stephon needs psychiatric help. There should be some sort of public order to section this dude before some stupid girl goes on and has his kids or marries him or something. He needs help, the little blue/white pill type of help! Thank you Maxwell for showing us what's really supposed to happen to men as they progress in age. Someone send a memo to fiddy and them. We need for ya'll to tone it down a bit and flow with a hell of a lot more sex appeal and less ummm dare I say, thug appeal. Fat Joe, well said, well bloody said. Big Pun's wife needs to hear that she is perfectly capable of taking care of her kids on her own. Handle your business girl if not for you then for the kids. It's no good playing the permanent role of a victim. You were already victimised by Pun, god rest and bless his soul. Don't go doing it to yourself damn it. I don't think money is the issue with Mrs Pun...no I think she has not yet dealt with her past hurts. She is still suffering from post traumatic stress. Girl get off the tv and radio interviews and get into counselling, it will be of far more use. You'll be a different person in no time.

Stephon, must be SUPER BORED..I think he should go get married and have some kids to occupy his time.. Mr's. Pun Sorry I agree with FAT JOE..I at no point ever condone a man beating his wife..HOWEVER waiting until after the man passe is not the time to drag his name through the mud. Because it's always two sides to every story. I completely understand why Fat Joe feels the way he does..

Mo: In the case of Big

Mo: In the case of Big Pun’s widow, I think we’re all forgetting that they were from the hood. It’s not like people were giving free advice on life insurance and other stuff that would help her family in the event of either or their untimely deaths. Plus, being abused isn’t just the physical part. I’m sure he made sure she couldn’t work, that she wasn’t allowed to be around other people and stuff that would keep her isolated and dependent on him. So, while it’s fucked up, it’s not really uncommon for abused wives to be left hanging if their rotten husband dies. GIRL PLEASE!! HE DIED TEN FUCKING YEARS AGO!!!! SHE SHOULD HAVE BEEN MOVED ON!!!

hot_mama's picture

I don't understand why she

I don't understand why she didn't get life insurance. You're married to someone, get life insurance on him. You have kids with him, get triple the life insurance. And he was large in size so she should have anticipated some health risks. Joe sounds genuine in that he gave assitance but damn, she and her children are living in a homeless shelter. He should have established a trust (and can still do this) for the woman and her children instead of giving her cash...regardless of the things she said about the man (Pun or Fat Joe). The woman, like many Americans who've never had money, has no skills in finances. You'd be surprised that so many people fall into this trap. So few Blacks have life insurance; they simply don't believe in purchasing security for their children in the event a spouse/parent unexpectedly passes away. I formerly worked for a finance company and sold life insurance on loans customers took out. When trying to sell the insurance to a married client, the husband would say, "I don't want her spending my money on some other man when I'm gone." Dumb, dumb, dumb!!! We need to view money differently. So it's not surprising that Pun's family is left with nothing. He should have been smarter and cared more adequately for his FAMILY.

It's sad about the abuse and what not but he should have had something planned out for his family in case of his untimely death. And being that he was damn near 600lbs especially. That's just the responsible thing to do. She can't expect to sit around and act like money is going to fall from the sky and that Fat Hoe will take care of them.

I can sympathize with the

I can sympathize with the domestic violence situation but once Pun passed it was fight or flight and she chose wrongly. With $160k I would have purchased me a home with no payments, Sold the big house, cars, furniture,clothes, and hired me a lawyer with the proceeds to straighten my business affairs so Pun's Royalities would be in tact. I really think the public schools should have mandatory business education classes so everyone can have some knowledge of business. What I need Ms. Rios to do is show some proof she's in a shelter for some reason I just can't believe it.

I feel sorry for Big Pun's children but I think his family is entitle to some money, however, I think Rios should get a job! But I think it was truly sad how he use to beat her constantly.
