Angela Lowe filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Cleveland prison officials, accusing them of neglecting Levert’s medical needs, citing Levert was denied his prescribed anti-anxiety medication while behind bars for failing to pay $90,000 in child support.

Lowe reached an agreement with Cuyahoga County and a jail medical services contractor in Cleveland federal court on Wednesday (16Jun10). The terms of the deal include no official admission of liability.

A coroner ruled Levert, the son of The O’Jays star Eddie Levert , had died of natural causes, citing lung disease, heart disease, high blood sugar and withdrawal from anti-anxiety drug Xanax as the reasons for his death.

Levert was 39 when he died.
