Hip-hop icon Dr. Dre took a big L in his divorce case with estranged wife Nicole Young. The super-producer and music mogul has been ordered to pay $500,000 to Young’s lawyers.
Dr. Dre Ordered To Help Pay Nicole Young’s Legal Fees
Nicole Young is 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 isn’t too bad by comparison. The payment order comes 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.
New Lawyers For Dre In Divorce Case
At the same time Dr. Dre is dropping stacks on Nicole’s lawyers, he has to pay his own. The Aftermath Entertainment boss recently had to hire new legal counsel after the judge decided Dre’s previous team — including celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser — had a conflict of interest. One of them had been Dre and Nicole’s family attorney for years.
Young’s lawyer, Samantha Spector, had been trying to disqualify King and Wasser from the case, since Young claimed King had acted as she and Dre’s family lawyer since the couple was engaged. The move is a major victory for Nicole and Spector — another of Tinsletown’s biggest legal names, who often faces off against Wasser. (Page Six)
Dr. Dre + Nicole Young Want To Be Single
The estranged couple requested for a judge to sign off on them legally ending their marriage once and for all. The act of a judge signing off is significant because it will free Dre and Young to re-marry even if their divorce case isn’t over.
They have yet to come to an agreement on how to split up Dre’s $800 million fortune, but once the judge signs they will be legally “single” and free to re-marry while they hash out the financial issues. (Page Six)
Dr. Dre’s Still At War With Nicole Young
According to reports, Dre recently filed new legal docs in his divorce with Young. He claims her abuse allegations are bogus and has ignited massive stress for him.
In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Dr. Dre also accuses Nicole of bringing up abuse claims to squeeze money out of him. He says she didn’t even raise the allegations until after she filed for divorce and realized the prenup prevented her from staking claim to half his wealth. According to the docs, Dre claims Nicole’s allegations are “appalling” and false. Likewise, he shoots down her claims he abused her before they got married, including the night before their wedding.
