Nicole Young has some serious allegations about her ex-husband.
Dr. Dre’s estranged wife, 51, claimed that the producer, 56, claimed that the producer owed her money. She reached out to the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department for help to recover more than $1 million from the producer.
According to the Daily Mail, Young’s legal team has filed a writ of execution against the rapper. She accused Dr. Dre of defying a court order to pay $1,224,607 in past legal fees, to which he decided to only pay $300,000, despite a court order.
“Andre is doing whatever he wants to do because he is an enormously entitled and well-funded litigant who seeks to exact revenge on his former wife by decimating her financially leaving her without legal representation in this case,” as per new documents obtained by Radar Online.
The papers asked the Sheriff’s Department to “enforce the judgment.”
Legal Fees With Interest
With this order, Young could then proceed with collecting the full amount, which grows with interest worth $335 daily, from his bank accounts.
The mother of two stated that she couldn’t fight in court because the father of her two kids, Truice, 24, and Truly, 20, could easily pay off a huge legal team to fight her appeal. She also noted that she only has $1 million in her bank account, less than the amount she owed her lawyers.
In July, Dr. Drew was asked to pay Young $3.5 million in annual spousal support by a Los Angeles court, as reported by People. He was ordered a monthly payment of $293,306 that includes expenses of their Malibu and Pacific Palisades residences, along with Young’s health insurance.
The agreement will take place until Young enters into a new domestic partnership, either of them dies, or “until further order of the Court.”
A Messy Divorce
A source revealed that “the support order is consistent with what he has already been paying since the initial separation.” Adding that “it is a fraction of the $2 million per month Nicole and her lawyers demanded.”
Dr. Dre was declared legally single months after Young accused him of physical and emotional abuse during their relationship. The music mogul denied the allegations.
Young also claimed that Dr. Dre “held a gun to my head” around the early 2000s and that he “punched me in the head and face” in 1999.
“Andre has verbally and emotionally decimated my personhood to the extent that I currently suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome,” she said in a statement. Young added that the producer denied her claims by telling the court that “at no time did I ever abuse Nicole or threaten her physical safety.”
The Initial Amount
The Superior Court of California ordered Dr. Dre to pay Young $2 million on or before January 11 in temporary spousal support.
According to the outlet, Dr. Dre’s attorney Laura Wasser filed a motion of bifurcation in March with the assertion that Young’s “false allegations of domestic violence” prove that the former couple’s “marriage has irremediably broken down,” adding that the rapper “no longer desires to be married to [Young].”
Young filed for divorce from Dr. Dre in June 2020 after more than two decades of marriage.
