Dr. Dre has been ordered to pay over $3 million a year in spousal support

According to The Blast, the judge presiding over Dr. Dre and Nicole Young’s divorce has ordered the Beats by Dre creator to pay spousal support. “[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,” the order states.

Nicole Young is also getting her health insurance paid for by her soon-to-be ex-husband. And Dr. Dre is also required to pay for the expenses on the couple’s Malibu and Pacific Palisades homes.

The judge ordered this support arrangement to continue “until the party receiving support remarries or enters into a new domestic partnership, death of either party.”

Other details are still being negotiated

Dr. Dre and Nicole Young’s divorce is far from over.

Another report by The Blast reveals that the former couple is still negotiating the other terms of the divorce. What’s more, the current spousal support order is temporary. Dr. Dre’s attorney is arguing that his client had an “ironclad” prenup with Nicole Young.

Nicole Young is arguing that she should get half of his business assets. The mogul, whose real name is André Young, is arguing that his soon-to-be ex-wife should get nothing.

Why did Nicole Young file for divorce?

On June 29, Nicole Young filed for divorce from Dr. Dre. According to Entertainment Tonight, she cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for her filing.

She also said that the rapper-turned-mogul was abusive and violent throughout their marriage.

“I have also offered extensive and painful testimony about Andre’s relentless campaign of abuse and control over me for more than half of my life,” she says. “It is misleading, revolting, and insulting for Andre to suggest that I have not been abused because, as a victim of relentless abuse and isolation, I did not create and maintain a contemporaneous record of abuse inflicted on me.”
