There’s word that funk legend Sly Stone is homeless and living out of a van in parks in the Crenshaw neighborhood of LA. A retired couple is letting him use their shower and feeding him meals.

According to the New York Post, the musician, born Sylvester Stone, has been plagued by drug use and bad financial decision.  He stopped receiving royalties checks from his manager back in 2009. Stone is accusing him of fraud and filed a $50 million dollar lawsuit. He sold his music publishing rights for just $1 million to Michael Jackson.

Stone alleges that the FBI is after him and hit men want to do him in.

Stone says he’s still recording music on a laptop computer
