Rap mogul Dr. Dre is facing a $1.2 million (800,000 pound sterling) lawsuit for allegedly failing to pay for studio time. The legendary producer is being sued by Paramount Recording Studios in California for breach of contract.
In a lawsuit filed at Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday, July 23, the claimants allege that Dre - real name Andre Young - failed to pay for the use of a recording studio between April 2009 and June 2010. The papers claim that Young promised to pay the amount by July 13 this year, but failed to do so.
It is reported the rapper has used the recording studio for a decade and got a cheaper rate on the space, according to Allhiphop.com.
Earlier this year, Dr. Dre sued Death Row Records for re-releasing his iconic 1992 album "The Chronic" without his consent, claiming he has not received any further money from album sales since he left the company in 1996. However, a California judge dismissed his claims in June.
