Her Husband Eazy-E Died After 12 Days of Their Marriage
Wright got married to rapper Eazy-E, originally known as Eric Lynn Wright, at the age of 26 on 14 March 1995. They had been dating for four years before getting married.
The couple first met in a Los Angeles nightclub in 1991. After that, they began dating following a friendship.
The pair tied the knot when Eazy was still in the hospital because of health issues. He was diagnosed with AIDS a month before the wedding, in late February, after being hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for a violent cough. From there, his health continued to deteriorate.
Despite Eazy's health problems, the pair married in the intensive care unit. But unfortunately, the pair were only married for 12 days before Eazy died of AIDS-related pneumonia on 26 March 1995.
Eazy was buried in a gold casket at Rose Hills Memorial Park on 7 April 1995.
In 2016, E.B. Wright, Wright's stepdaughter and Eazy's daughter crowdfunded Ruthless Scandal: No More Lies, a documentary film about her father's death.
Eazy's son, Yung Eazy, claimed that Suge Knight killed his father by injecting him with HIV. He also shared a post on Instagram, which had since been deleted, with the caption, "I've been known my pops was killed. His death never added up 2 what ppl have always said maybe they think we're idiots blind to the truth idk….but 4 u new fans, youngsters & ppl who just don't know much notice in #StraightOuttaCompton Eazy did not get sick until after the studio incident with suge and look how he acknowledged & admits on this interview with #JimmyKimmel injecting ppl instead of shooting them is a new thing that's done. the truth is out there its just blinded by the fact that Eric had a lot of s*x."
She Has Two Kids with Eazy-E
Wright has two children with Eazy-E. Before the couple met, Eazy had five children from five different marriages.
In 1994, Wright gave birth to their son, Dominick Wright, now known as Lil Eazy. She then became pregnant with their daughter, Daijah Wright, who she gave birth to six months after her husband passed away.
