Dr Dre 's divorce from ex-wife Nicole Young has reportedly taken another nasty turn.

The split has been bitter so far with accusations being thrown around, and now it's said that the rapper was handed court papers while he was at a cemetery to bury his beloved grandmother.

According to TMZ, Dre - real name Andre Romelle Young - was handed legal documents by a process server during the funeral.

Sources say the 56-year-old, who married Nicole in 1996, was at a Los Angeles cemetery on Monday to bury his grandmother, who helped raise him.

However there are conflicting reports over exactly where he was confronted with the papers, as sources connected to Nicole claim it actually happened in the car park afterwards.

Sources connected to Dre told the US site the process server approached him at the burial site while Dre was standing by his grandma's casket.

And sources connected to Nicole say it actually happened in the parking lot after the burial.

Whatever happened, it's said that Dre was so angry that he wouldn't accept the documents, and sources claim the server dropped them, either by the gravesite or in the parking lot depending on which version of events you believe.

It's said that the papers involved payment of Nicole's attorney's fees, and that there's a dispute over how much Dre was supposed to pay.

The Mirror has contacted Dr Dre's representatives for comment.

Dre officially became a single man in April, but his divorce battle is still far from over.

And it was reported in June that the exes were still warring over the validity of their prenup and how their assets will be divided.

Nicole filed for divorce in June last year.

The former couple have two grown up children - son Truice, 24, and daughter Truly, 20.

According to Forbes, Dr Dre's net worth is estimated at around $800 million.

Nicole, who works as a lawyer, is said to be seeking spousal support.

She was previously married to NBA player Sedale Threatt.
