Despite a messy and ongoing divorce from his estranged wife, Nicole Young, and a recent medical scare, Dr. Dre seems to be doing just fine. The super producer was even spotted out having dinner recently with a new lady friend.
In new footage captured by blog site The Shade Room, the former N.W.A. band member was seen arriving and leaving BOA Steakhouse with “Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood” star Apryl Jones in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Feb. 10.
The pair’s outing quickly sparked rumors of a new relationship, and social media had plenty to say about the rapper having dinner with the reality star. “Apryl Jones got Lori Harvey beat idgaf 😂,” one Twitter user wrote. “My sis leveled up and got a billionaire! That alone surpasses everyone Lori has ever dated 😭💰💰😭🤑😂😂😂#Drdre #apryljones.”
“Apryl Jones done went to where the money reside and that’s a fendi 😭,” another expressed.
“You get off your death bed and the first person you choose to date is Apryl Jones lmfao” a third wrote. “Gone head and throw the towel in.”
As previously reported, Dr. Dre is currently going through a tumultuous divorce battle with his wife Nicole that has made headlines on several occasions, with one update being messier than the next. Nicole filed for divorce last June after 24 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason. The pair share two adult children, Truly and Truice Young. However, Dre does have children from previous relationships.
As for the VH1 reality star, Apryl had remained relatively out of the spotlight since her breakup with fellow cast mate Lil Fizz in January 2020. Some saw their relationship as taboo, seeing as Fizz is former band mate of B2K member Omarion, the father of Apryl’s two young children.
Apryl was accused of creating bad blood between the two men, which ultimately affected their musical group. However, Omarion has said that Apryl’s love life doesn’t bother him. “I don’t feel any way about it,” he said in November 2019. “I think that if they’re happy, then they should be happy. I think they should change the narrative, though. She’s still the mother of my children.”
