It has been confirmed that Dr. Dre's son Andre Young Jr., who died at his home in Los Angeles last August, took a lethal overdose of heroin and morphine.

The coroner's report on the 20-year-old claimed that his death was accidental. He was found in his bed by his mother on August 23rd.

The release date of Dr. Dre's unfortunately-titled new album 'Detox' has been continually pushed back since the tragedy, although it is rumoured for release in the coming months. The rap mogul is also said to be involved in the production of Eminem's new album 'Relapse'.
