The documents reveal the company was originally valued at $50 million, but after the deal was made where the three would pay $5 million for their share, they were told the company was actually valued at $170 million.
It was at that point that they got Dre and Xzibit allegedly demanded more money.
Dr. Dre's lawyer, Howard King stated that this case is “nothing more than a blatant and short-sighted attempt by the plaintiffs to generate publicity for their cause."
