Turmoil is still brewing with the estate of the late Chad Butler, also known as Pimp C, almost a decade after his death.

Butler, one half of the rap duo Underground Kingz, or UGK, died in California on Dec. 4, 2007.

A court hearing is on the docket to remove Chimera Butler, the late artist’s wife, as administrator of his estate. The case is set for 9 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 26, in County Court at Law No. 1.

Butler did not leave a will, according to court records.

In August 2008, the court entered into an agreement declaring heirship and gave Chinara Butler the title of administrator but by February 2010 the court removed her from this and later concluded Chinara Butler was negligent in management of the estate.

The problems continued, according to the legal document filed with the county clerk.

The law firm of Benchekstein and Oxford LLP is representing Chad Butler Jr.

Butler, along with childhood friend Bernard “Bun B” Freeman, made up the Grammy nominated duo UGK who were known for appearing with Jay Z on “Big Pimpin’” and for “International Player’s Anthem (I choose You).”
