Hip-hop mogul Dr. Dre's son has died at the age of 20.

Andre Young Jr was discovered in his bed by his mother at their Los Angeles home on Saturday morning. He had been out with friends the night before, but returned home at about 5.30am on Saturday.

Young Jr. was unresponsive when his mother went to check on him at around 10am. She then called the emergency services.

In a statement, his musician father said: 'Dr. Dre is mourning the loss of his son Andre Young Jr. Please respect his family's grief and privacy at this time.'

A post mortem has been completed but toxicology tests could take some weeks, officials said.

Besides Young Jr, Dr. Dre has four other children, Curtis, 27; Marcel, 17; Truth, 11 and Truly, seven.

Dr. Dre lives in Los Angeles with his wife of 12 years Nicole and his two youngest children.
