American music producer, Dr. Dre, was reportedly served with divorce papers while laying his grandmother to rest in Los Angeles on Monday.
Dre has been involved in a contentious divorce from his ex-wife, Nicole Young, that has attracted numerous headlines since the papers were first filed.
TMZ reports that a process server for the music producer’s ex-wife attempted to serve him with legal documents in the divorce while at the cemetery.
Though the claim has been disputed, the entertainment magazine quoted sources as saying that Dre was standing at the graveside next to his grandmother’s casket when the process service first attempted to give him the papers.
However, the report said it is unknown what transpired afterwards, but sources close to Young confirmed that Dre was served at the cemetery’s parking lot after the burial.
Dre was said to have refused to take the documents and was furious.
Source for the opposing parties disagrees on exactly how service was achieved.
Sources from the music producer said the process server dropped the papers at the gravesite.
But Young’s source disputed their claim, stating that the papers were dropped in the parking lot of the Los Angeles cemetery.
The papers involved payment of Nicole’s attorney’s fees.
There has also been a dispute over how much he was supposed to pay. The music mogul has already paid $325,433.
The judge had earlier signed an order that he owed a total of $1,550,000.
Dre believes that amount is in error and he paid the full fee.
Young argued that the order is clear, and that her ex-husband owes a balance of $1,224,567.
The legal documents that were served included the judge’s final order of $1,550,000.
