Music mogul Dr Dre has been ordered by a court to pay his ex-wife, Nicole Young $300,000 in spousal support monthly.
According to court documents, a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge ordered Dre to pay $293,306 per month to Nicole. The decision is only temporary until a final decision is made.
The court documents read, “[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,” Dre will pay a total of $3,519,672 per year until Nicole remarries or “enters into a new domestic partnership.”
The judge also ordered Dre to keep paying for Nicole’s health insurance.
In the petition, Nicole said they did sign a prenup before they got married. However, she claimed Dre tore it up a couple of years into their marriage.
Nicole filed for divorce from the millionaire rapper back in 2020. She cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for her split from the hip-hop mogul.
The couple got married in 1996 and are blessed with two adult children, Triuce and Truly.
Young was formerly married to NBA player, Sedale Threatt, and is a trained lawyer.
During their marriage, Dre amassed nearly $1 billion through his music and Beats headphones.
