Dr. Dre Ordered To Pay $300K A Month To Estranged Wife
Dr. Dre has to cough up $300,000 in spousal support to his ex-wife Nicole Young, which totals to over $3.5 million a year.
The 56-year-old entrepreneur (real name Andre Romelle Young) will have to fork over this amount every month until she remarries or enters into a domestic partnership – or unless the court orders otherwise at a later date.
Per The Blast, Dre has also been ordered to pay her health insurance, which will be similar to the coverage she had during the marriage. Nicole will reportedly have to pay all other insurance out of her own pocket.
The judge also ordered Dre to continue paying expenses for the Malibu and Pacific Palisades homes that they once shared.
While it may sound like Dre will be dishing out loads of cash every month in spousal support, he sees the order as a victory. If you’ve been keeping up with this story, Nicole initially requested Dre pay her $2 million/month in spousal support.
According to site:
Dr. Dre looks at the decision as a victory for his team after Nicole originally asked for $2 million a month in support. To those of you counting, that is $24 million a year, so the $300K a month is a bargain! The rapper’s team believes this is only temporary as the couple has an “ironclad prenup.”
It should be noted, the rapper and his ex-wife are currently negotiating an overall settlement of their divorce, and the amount of money to be paid by Dre is temporary. In other words, we are guessing after the couple agrees on a lump sum payment to be paid to Nicole by Dre, the monthly payment may cease to exist. In many wealthy celebrity cases, a divorce settlement will include any future payments to an ex-spouse.
As previously reported, Dre & Nicole had a prenuptial agreement in place, which Nicole claims she filed under duress on their wedding day. Nicole filed June 2020 citing irreconcilable differences.
The couple has two adult children, Truice and Truly, so child support was not an issue.
