Dr. Dre’s estranged wife, Nicole Young, is seeking nearly $2 million per month in spousal support — as well as $5 million in legal fees — according to new court documents filed Thursday in the epic divorce battle between the hip hop mogul and Young.
Attorneys for Young claim in California court papers that Dre should pay $1,936,399 in monthly support, and allege that Young’s having trouble paying her bills since her marriage of 24 years broke up, and Dre controls all their assets. The court papers further allege that the rap star kicked Young out of their 43,000-square-foot Brentwood mansion, April 1, “in the middle of the night” and “in a drunken rage.” And that he banished Young to their Malibu beach home, but then threatened to sell it, and texted her, “Do not spend one more cent… You can’t be mean and disrespectful and spend my hard-earned money. F–k that!”
The papers paint Dre (aka Andre Young) as a control freak who “forced” Young to sign a pre-nup on their wedding day “under extreme duress.” The couple has been battling over the pre-nup since filing for divorce in June.
Young also alleges Dre has blocked her AmEx charges.
The papers assert that Young — who does not work, but claims she “played an important role” in Dre’s career and “was integral” to naming his hit record label Aftermath — should enjoy the same lifestyle she did before the split. The documents reveal their lavish lifestyle — including five LA residences, multimillion-dollar private jet and yacht trips, numerous luxury cars, and an army of staff including a private chef, 12 security guards, 7 housekeepers, and more.
The documents also accuse Dre of engaging in a scorched earth campaign of costly litigation against Young, and claim he’s stonewalling her team over revealing his finances. His lawyers have alleged that Young has refused to turn over his belongings from the Malibu home where she’s staying, including his golf clubs, a motorcycle, and a registered handgun.
But Young fires back in court papers that, with his $1 billion worth, Dre can afford to buy replacements. She also said Dre sent his brother-in-law with no warning to pick up his “Glock,” but she wouldn’t give it to him, and claims Dre has sent her texts that, “caused me to feel afraid and extremely uneasy.”
Young also alleges that Dre agreed to go to counseling, and stop drinking, to patch up their relationship, but did not follow up on the promises. The couple have three grown kids.
Young is being repped in the case by LA power attorney Samantha Spector, while Dre’s lawyer is another celebrity go-to, Laura Wasser.
