Dr. Dre has been going through a very tough divorce with his estranged wife, Nicole Young. Young initially filed last summer and has been requesting legal fees to be covered as well as a requesting millions of dollars in spousal support. Now, things are at the point to where Dre is asking a judge to officially declare that he is a single man amid all of the chaos they’re going through, according to TMZ. This is being filed by attorney, Laura Wasser.
Documents Have Been Filed Requesting Bifurcation Of Divorce
Wasser has since filed documents where it’s requested that a bifurcation of divorce is presented. Here, both Dre and Nicole would be declared single in their relationship and dividing assets in the divorce would also be taken care of at a later date. TMZ also reported that in court documents, the divorce battle has reached a “point of no return.” Dre also says Nicole’s “false allegations of domestic violence” is a huge example of this. Dre also supposedly wants to settle the divorce but Nicole is “dragging her feet.”
Nicole Was Denied Request For Restraining Order
Dre recently scored a legal victory for himself as according to TMZ, Nicole‘s request for an emergency restraining order was denied. This is after Dre played a song on social media where he called Nicole a “greedy b*tch.” She was also labeled as a “b*tch and a perjurer.” She also claimed that with this song, “he has upped the ante and is now outright threatening me to keep my mouth shut or else.” A judge made this decision due to “insufficient evidence” of spousal abuse.
Dre And Nicole Are Also At Odds Over Validity Of Prenup
According to TMZ, another issue in this divorce battle is the validity of their prenup. Due to this, Dre wants that situation to head to a trial. Laura Wasser requested this five-day trial last month. Nicole originally signed the prenup before the two got married but, Dre supposedly explained how he regretted pressuring her but also denied tearing the paperwork up. The report added that the prenup being altered must “be in writing.
Dre Battled Brain Aneurysm In January
Dre also had a serious health care at the start of the new year as he was hospitalized in ICU care in Los Angeles for a brain aneurysm. Dre ended up being fine but the cause of the aneurysm was never found. Dre was released after two weeks as he revealed that he received excellent care at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center but continued to receive treatment at home for precautionary reasons.
“Thanks to my family, friends and fans for their interest and well wishes. I’m doing great and getting excellent care from my medical team. I will be out of the hospital and back home soon. Shout out to all the great medical professionals at Cedars. One Love!!”
