Dr. Dre

Loses $3 Mil Lawsuit

But Who the Hell Cares?

Dr. Dre
just lost a bid to squeeze a quick $3 million out of bankrupt Death Row Records ... but $3 mil is pretty much beer money these days for a guy who's zeroing in on billionaire status.

We did some digging and found Dre filed a claim in DRR's bankruptcy case, claiming he's owed millions in royalties ... for records Death Row sold while the company was in bankruptcy.  

Dre feels ... since the money was raised off of his back in bankruptcy ... he should get his cash before the other creditors.

The judge shut down Dre's motion ... so it looks like he won't see a dime.

How's he gonna eat?

Man, Dre's 50... The Chronic was 22 years ago. The average black man lives 70 years, it's even shorter in California. All that money and not much time left. Sad...

Jiat couldn't avoid printing something negative after this guy has such good news recently. Typical. Build em up and tear em down. This guy is too rich to care. Tmz can't touch him, Just like with Sterling. Nice try tho

3 million seems to be a magic number, especially since Apple just purchased "BEATS" for - you guessed it - 3 million. I wonder what Dre needed 3 million so bad for.
