Dr. Dre's Son Found Dead
In sad news, Dr. Dre's 20-year-old son Andre Young Jr., was found dead at his home in Woodland Hills, Calif. on Saturday. According to People, Young's mother told police that she attempted to rouse her son at 10:24 a.m., and when she couldn't, she called paramedics, who pronounced him dead at the scene.
Young "had been out with friends" the previous night and returned home around 5:30 a.m., according to L.A. County Coroner's assistant chief Ed Winter. An autopsy was performed on Monday, but the cause of death isn't likely to be determined for eight weeks while toxicology tests are done.
"Dr. Dre is mourning the loss of his son," his rep Lori Earl said in a statement. "Please respect his family's grief and privacy at this time."
