Voletta Wallace Net Worth: Voletta Wallace is an American businesswoman who has a net worth of $40 million. Voletta Wallace was born February 1953 in Trelawny, Jamaica. She is best known as the mother of the late rapper The Nortorious B.I.G. (also known as Biggie Smalls, big Poppa, Frank White, King of New York and by his given name Christopher George Latore Wallace). On March 9, 1997, Voletta's only son, Christopher Wallace, was killed by an unknown assailant in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles. Voletta filed a suit against the City of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Police Department for wrongful death, accusing them of conspiring to kill her son. In June of 2014, Voletta gave an online interview to HIPHOP DX to clear up some of the controversy over her rift with Lil' Kim, explaining at one point, "After my son's death, believe it or not, Lil' Kim and I were close…but I guess she doesn't. I'm a woman who speaks my mind… I did not like the way she was [parading around] national television and radio about Biggie, the love of her life. Her heart, her nose, her mouth, her butt, every part of her. Christopher is not here to defend himself. I was offended. I was offended and I let her know…I might tell them to go to hell and mind their own damn business but deep down I wish them well." After the death of her son, she became the manager of Biggie's estate and founded the Christopher Wallace Memorial Foundation. Voletta Wallace published her memoir in 2005 titled Biggie: Voletta Wallace Remembers Her Son, Christopher Wallace, aka Notorious B.I.G. She also produced and starred in the 2009 film Notorious.
