Nicole Young Accuses Dr. Dre Of Holding Gun To Her Head
The worst of Nicole Young’s domestic abuse allegations include Dr. Dre holding a gun to her head, punching her in the face and attempting to choke her. Dre, who is still recovering in the ICU from a brain aneurysm he suffered last week, denies the claims.
Five months after filing for divorce, Nicole, 51, alleges that Dre (né Andre Young) “held a gun to my head” twice in 2000 and 2001, that he “punched me in the head/face” in 1999 and 200 and that he “kicked down a door” while she hid “from his rage” in 2016, among other instances of abuse. “Andre has verbally and emotionally decimated my personhood to the extent that I currently suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome,” she said in the documents, filed to the Superior Court of California.

Sources connected to Dre with direct knowledge tell TMZ … Dre’s where he’s been since last Monday — in ICU at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A. Our sources say doctors continue to do a battery of tests to get to the root problem. Doctors also want him in ICU in case, God forbid, he suffers another aneurysm … if that happens, time would be of the essence. (TMZ)
