Heavy D's brother has filed legal papers to gain control of the late singer's estate.

Floyd Myers, who previously served as the hip-hop star's business manager, claims the "Now That We Found Love" hitmaker wrote a will in 1999 which left everything to his sibling. He reportedly lost the document years ago, but Myers has since found his copy and is now asking a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge to appoint him executor of Heavy D's estate, which included $320,000 in listed assets.
However, Floyd's lawyer tells TMZ.com the court request is simply a formality to clear the title on a condominium the brothers co-owned so it can be sold off.
