Hip-hop legend Dr. Dre has been going through a lot lately that he hasn't spoken about publicly. It sounds like the Doctor is going to tackle those topics with some new music, however. On a track featuring West Coast rap veteran KXNG Crooked, Dre opens up about his ongoing divorce case and near-fatal brain aneurysm.
Dr. Dre Raps About Recent Drama In His Life
Aftermath affiliate DJ Silk posted a snippet of a song by Dr. Dre and KXNG Crooked. Dre references his medical scare and the ugly divorce he’s been going through with estranged wife Nicole Young, who has accused the artist/mogul of domestic abuse and infidelity.

Reality TV star Moniece Slaughter recently confirmed rumors that Dr. Dre is dating her fellow “Love & Hip-Hop” alum Apryl Jones. Since then, Slaughter says she’s been receiving threats.
“As a woman, in a time where we’re told we should be valued, exalted, and protected, I’ve been conflicted as to how I was going to proceed, or address last night’s chain of events. Torn between allowing men to intimidate or bully me into being silent, or to speak up for myself and stand firm in my position. Torn between acquiescing to my friend’s and family’s please to not speak up to defend myself, or to ignore them as well, and still stand firm in my position. Upon waking up today I was told that my life, along with my son’s life, and my family’s lives were in danger. That I was dealing with a very powerful man, and that I needed to be quiet, to disappear from social media, and even think about taking a vacation to ‘clear my mind.’ For no reason than the safety of my loved ones, moving forward, I will not be speaking out publicly about all that has transpired. I will not be accepting any media or interview requests or inquiries. I will continue to live my life as I do on a day to day basis. I will continue to care for my son. I will continue to sing and make music. I will continue to be happy. I will continue to do any and all things that contribute to my happiness and success. Thank you for the outpouring of love and support. I’ll be back in a bit.” -Moniece Slaughter
Moniece Confirms Dr. Dre + Apryl Jones Are Dating
Before the alleged threats, Moniece did an Instagram Live interview revealing Dre’s new relationship (and throwing shade at his new woman). Moniece and Apryl are linked through “L&HH,” and for both having children fathered by members of the R&B group B2K.
“To the person that asked me if Apryl and Dre are together, yes they are. And it’s been a while that they’ve been together. It’s been a while, it’s not new. I’ve known for a while. … I was shocked that someone so established and refined as Dre would almost wife her.”
