    My prayers go out to this family… What a tragic preventable loss

    Drug experimentation can be tragic you never know what combo can be lethal… I too cleaned up in 90 at age 21 Thank God!

  21. 21

    If its any consolation at least it wasnt a painful death! feel bad for Dre though whats the worse thing for a parent but to bury a son or daughter?!

  22. 22

    RIP! Prayers to the family.

    Re: Swords Woman – good on you, still haven't made it after 30 years

  24. 24

    You reap what you sow……

  25. 25

    damn!Heroin (not Heroine Perez) AND morphine?2 opiates together is 100% death.heroin alone is 100 % death.it couldn't get worse than this.such a waste for this kid…very sad indeed.I hope he's in God's hands now.

  26. 26

    At least the family knows the cause so they can attempt to find closure.

  27. 27

    Well his life's work has come full circle. Hustling drugs as a teen, as well as his music encouraging people to blazed have come to a complete end now that his son lost his life due to drugs. Parents warned him about his lyrics and songs, maybe now he can understand what parents go through when rappers glorify that lifestyle.

  28. 28

    I think it's terrible when a parent loses a child regardless of the circumstances. I hope his son is resting in peace & the family/friends he left behind are finding solace.

  29. 29

    Which Heroine? Was it in Jane Austen or one of the Bronte sisters, darling?

  30. 30

    What happened to just smoking weed? Dr. Dre of all people should've taught his kids that weed is the best stress relief!

  31. 31

    yo yo yo …yooz razists bedder not be tokkin' sheet ’bout myz homeboyz…weez
    gunna cap yo azz..fo shizzit.

  32. 32

    Who would have guessed that a rap star('s son) would have died from DRUGS.


  33. 33

    Why are people saying they are not surprised, did any of you know his son personally?? or just assuming because of the business his dad is in drugs are just a part of it, damn, thats ignorant.

  34. 34

    Damn…sorry so sorry

    accidental overdose, meaning he didn't intentionally want to die…. It's so sad. And to all the assholes, there are millions of people in our country with addiction problems. He made shitty choices but he's still a person and didn't deserve to die. I'm glad I got help. Been clean 3 years on January 9th!


  37. 37

    Oh my, this is sad. And I didn't hear about this…

  38. 38

    What a surprise. What do you expect with a dad like that?

  39. 39

    "Heroine" - sheesh! I didn't know you could die from consuming a female role model. Well, at least I know who's lurking under a different screen name at The Daily Dish. Same spelling mistake time after time. (shaking head) "Heroine"…

    Re: King_K_Rool – Well that would prove that your head is in your ass then right? Grow up loser

  41. 41

    That is so sad…God bless his family.

  42. 42

    Re: Kellergirl – With a dad like that? What exactly does that mean? I am just wondering.

  43. 43

    who does heroine anymore?

  44. 44

    Re: IUsedToLoveYouButNowYouAreAManWhore – A lot of people do heroin…just because they aren't sitting next to you doesn't mean they don't exist…………….

  45. 45

    I hope this isn't another case of one more child of a rich person growing up without discipline, responsibility, purpose, or goals. Too often, it seems that rich people give too much to their kids without expecting anything from them.

    Re: Kellergirl – Have you ever looked up the statistics about heroin addiction? It can happen to anyone at any age and any time. Dre was and always has been a good dad to his kids, I don't see anyone saying mean things about Mr Travolta, his son would probably still be alive if it was for that stupid cult they're in.
