"Dr. Dre is mourning the loss of his son Andre Young Jr. Please respect his family's grief and privacy at this time," the spokesperson said.

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.

Young was discovered in his bed at around 10:30 a.m. Saturday by his mother, who attempted to rouse him, the coroner's spokesperson told MTV News. Young was unresponsive, so she called paramedics, who responded to the scene. After their efforts to revive him failed, he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Just found out about Dre's son. Heartbreaking news.

Probably also means Detox will be pushed back yet again & rightfully so in this case.

yea it kinda is but its cool cuz your intentions werent to be mean or anything unless you didnt even care about his son dieing. when i herd about this on some other site everyone just posted comments saying "now detox wont drop" and i got pissed cuz someone has just died and all you can think about is music? and i dont think it should effect it that much cuz he has ghost writters.
