Dr. Dre has filed a lawsuit against Bruce Williams, author of Rollin’ With Dre: The Unauthorized Account: An Insider’s Tale of the Rise, Fall, and Rebirth of West Coast Hip Hop for a sum of $101,377.85.
According to TMZ.com, Dre alleges that he loaned Williams the money, which was never returned.
Williams released the book last march, which detailed his life working alongside the Hip Hop producer. He was described as Dr. Dre’s go-to guy for over 16 years. The book touches on Dre’s personal and professional life, as well as describing some of the more mysterious events in Hip Hop, such as Death Row’s internal operations.
It is, at this point, unclear what Dre’s alleged loan was for ; in Williams’ book, he details a falling out with the Hip Hop producer, though has been no indication that it is related.
