Dr. Dre-Unknown Instagram Imposter Posing As His Son
The mysterious account has changed their ways.
An Instagram user who describes himself as "the Son of Dr. Dre," and boasted of almost half a million followers has been called as false by Dr. Dre himself.
On Wednesday (1 November), the super producer told his followers that he was in no way related to the verified user, who went by the name of @jetpacknyc.
"This person who claims to be the son of Dr. Dre. He is not. He is a complete fake. There is no relationship," said Dr. Dre wrote in the title of a screen-shot taken of @jetpacknyc account. The screenshot also shows a picture with DJ Khaled and Tyga.
