LOS ANGELES - Dr. Dre’s 20-year-old son has died, the rapper’s publicist said Tuesday.
“Dr. Dre is mourning the loss of his son Andre Young Jr.,” publicist Lori Earl said in a statement.
Young Jr., who was named after his father, was found dead Saturday by his mother at their home in suburban Woodland Hills, county coroner’s Lt. John Kades said.
An autopsy was performed Monday, but the cause of death wasn’t likely to be determined for eight weeks while toxicology tests are done, Kades said.
