In the words of the acclaimed poet Aubrey Drake Graham, “I like when money make a difference, but it don’t make you different.”

When Dr. Dre swept Nicole Young off her feet in 1995 via love letter, I bet neither of them believed they’d be the type of people to handling divorce matters at the funeral of a blood relative.

But. Here. We. Are.

In the latest messy installment in Dre vs. Young, TMZ is reporting that on Monday, Young attempted to serve her ex-husband legal documents at the cemetery while burying his grandmother, the women Dre credits with raising him in the New Wilmington Arms housing project in Compton. All is fair in love and war?

The all-important papers detailed the dispute over Nicole Young’s legal fees necessary to pay high-powered defense attorneys, Samantha Spector (notable clients: Amber Heard and Jenna Dewan) and Lisa Helfend Meyer (notable client: Trevor Bauer’s accuser).

A month ago, a Los Angeles judge ordered Dre to retroactively pay $1.55 million in Young’s legal fees. The music icon paid $325,433 and believes the aforementioned amount is an error. Nicole is demanded the $1.2 million discrepancy.

There is, however, a dispute over how tactfully these papers were served to the near-billionaire.

Sources connected to Dre claim the server burdened him with the papers at the burial site as Dre was standing by his grandma’s casket. But Nicole’s people claim Dre was served in the cemetery’s parking lot after the burial.

Regardless of trivial details, Dre wasn’t having it.

Via TMZ: we’re told Dre recoiled in anger and wouldn’t take the documents in hand. Our Dre sources claim the process server dropped the documents by the gravesite. Our Nicole sources say they were dropped in the parking lot.

Can you imagine being the person tasked with approaching Dr. F*cking Dre at his own grandmother’s funeral with a bill to pay for the professionals whose job it is to ensure he pays even more? That is an utter kamikaze mission.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
