Dr. Dre Files Suit Against 'Rollin' With Dre' Author

Dr. Dre is suing the author of the book "Rollin' With Dre: The Unauthorized Account: An Insider's Tale of the Rise, Fall, and Rebirth of West Coast Hip Hop" over an alleged loan the rapper gave him, according to TMZ.

Yesterday, Dre filed a lawsuit in the L.A. County Superior Court claiming he loaned writer Bruce Williams $101,377.85, although it is unclear what the loan was for. Dre alleges he's yet to receive the money back and is seeking immediate repayment.

The book, released in March, is about the struggles Dre and other rappers faced in the hip-hop world, and investigates Death Row Records' internal operations. The book also touches on Dre's personal life and describes what it's like to work with the hip-hop mogul. Williams, who claims to have been close with the rapper for a number of years working as his right-hand man, also wrote about a falling-out he had with Dre. It is unclear whether the argument was over the loan.

During an interview with HipHopDX.com in May, Williams described his relationship with Dre, saying, "There was a time where you couldn't speak to Dre unless you spoke to me first. It was that deep. I learned the music business from working with him."
