Late rapper Big Pun's mom suspected in bank robberies

2014-10-04 18:51:15

A woman busted for robbing a bank in South Florida late last month is believed to be the mother of late rapper Big Pun.

Miami-Dade Police arrested Gail Simpson, 63, on Sept. 23 after she walked into a Wells Fargo branch at around 3:30 p.m. and demanded money from a teller. Simpson got off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

It wasn't until after her arrest that word came out about Simpson's true identity. Her real name is Gail Tirado, and she's been in trouble for robbing a bank before. She’s currently on probation from a June attempted armed robbery conviction. 

She reportedly started robbing banks because the family has blown through the funds from Pun's estate. The Bronx-born rapper's family has been struggling to survive ever since he died of a heart attack in 2000. Last month Pun's widow, Liza Rios, sued, claiming Fat Joe hasn't paid her royalties from Pun's 1998 single "Still Not a Player." She’s asking for more than $1 million.

Meanwhile, Pun's mom has a good relationship with Joe despite the money matters.
