The rumor began in January when the man published a blog post of the alleged wedding. Per CNBC, the wife of the country’s late President Kim Dae-jung, planned to marry the Beats by Dre founder “in order to launder the late Kim’s slush funds.”

Seoul Western District Court handed down a 5 million won ($4,400) fine for “defamation against the deceased.” Judge Lee Eun-hee said, “The rumor about the slush fund and the marriage between Lee and Dr. Dre is groundless.”
