Dr. Dre Forced To Regularly Pay Ex-Wife
Hopefully the album sells a lot of copies and tops the Billboard charts, because the music icon might soon be crying straight to the bank. His family life isn’t too sweet unfortunately at the moment as recent reports claim the hip-hop icon must pay nearly $300,000 monthly – or well over $3 million combined annually – to his ex-wife Nicole Young as their divorce case nears completion.
According to reports, the Doc is being legally forced to hand over thousands to his former ride or die. The mother of his daughter Truly Young could possibly get more in the future as the ruling is just temporary.
According to court documents, a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge ordered Dre to pay $293,306 per month to Nicole. The decision is only temporary until a final decision is made. The court documents read, “[Dre] is ordered to pay to the [Nicole] spousal support in the sum of $293,306.00 per month, payable on the first of each month, commencing August 1, 2021,” Dre will pay a total of $3,519,672 per year until Nicole remarries or “enters into a new domestic partnership.” (RadarOnline)
Dr. Dre Ordered To Help Pay Nicole Young’s Legal Fees
Dr. Dre also recently took a big L in his divorce case with Young. In April 2021, the super-producer and music mogul was ordered to pay $500,000 to Young’s lawyers.
Nicole Young was seeking $5 million total for her attorney fees in the still-ongoing divorce proceedings, in addition to $2 million per month in spousal support. So this half-a-million-dollar hit for Dr. Dre wasn’t too bad by comparison. The payment order came with a 10-day deadline.
Dr. Dre – real name Andre Young – is reportedly worth nearly $ 1 billion, and his split with Nicole has become increasingly hostile since she filed for divorce in June.
