With 'Detox' delayed, Dr. Dre sued for unpaid studio bills
Dr. Dre's record company, Aftermath Entertainment, rented the studio from April through June 2010 and failed to make payments, according to Paramount Record Studios.
Aftermath Entertainment has used Paramount Studios for about 10 years. Dr. Dre allegedly agreed to settle the payments by July 13, but Paramount claims he failed to do so, thus leading to the million dollar-plus lawsuit. Dr. Dre was working on his long-delayed "Detox" album.
He also owns Beats by Dr. Dre headphones, a popular consumer electronics imprint. As one commenter on SoundSlam put it, "you would think with the amount of money he's making with these expensive headphones, he'd pay his bills." Either that or he turned the grooves up so loud, he can't hear the creditors knocking.
In 2008, 'Forbes' magazine estimated Dr. Dre's net worth at $15 million.
