Dr. Dre Mourning the Death of 20-Year-Old Son, Andre Young, Jr.


The young man was pronounced dead at the scene, yet authorities will have to wait eight more weeks to finally find out the precise cause of his death.

Hip-hop icon Dr. Dre is in great loss. His son, Andre Young Jr., was found dead over the weekend at his home in Woodland Hills, California, according to the Los Angeles County coroner's office. He was 20 years old.

According to a representative for the Los Angeles County Coroner's office, Andre spent Friday evening, August 22 with friends. He, according to his mother, returned home the next day, August 23 at around 5:30 A.M. She said she heard him in the bedroom, but when she tried to wake him up at about 10:30 A.M. he was unresponsive.

Andre's mother immediately called paramedics, who later pronounced him dead at the scene. The precise cause of Andre's death has not yet been determined. An autopsy has been done Monday, August 25 and toxicology tests are done already, but it will take eight weeks for authorities before they could finally confirm the results.

A spokesperson for Dr. Dre has on Tuesday, August 26 issued a statement on his behalf that read, "Dr. Dre is mourning the loss of his son Andre Young Jr. Please respect his family's grief and privacy at this time."
