Dr. Dre and Nicole Young have reached an agreement in their divorce proceedings. According to PEOPLE the producer has been ordered to pay out $3.5 million per year in spousal support. The annual amount breaks down to $293,306 per month and is in alignment with the couple’s prenuptial agreement. The alimony will continue until Young remarries or enters into a new domestic partnership, either of them dies or “until further order of the Court.” The Beats by Dre businessman’s current net worth is almost $800 million.
The outlet reported, Young’s lawyers sought a $2 million monthly payment. She initially filed for divorce from the hip-hop mogul in June 2020 after more than two decades o marriage. VIBE reported in January, Dr. Dre and his then-estranged wife reached a temporary spousal support agreement of $2 million in their ongoing divorce battle. The publicized divorce proceedings have not left either party unscathed.
In September 2020, VIBE reported Young was accused of embezzling money from Record One, a company founded by Dre and Larry Chatman in 2015. She allegedly had access to the LLC’s checking account and Chatman claimed she wrote herself a check for $353,571.85 and an additional $30,000.
Young accused Dr. Dre of being physically abusive throughout the entirety of their relationship. Entertainment Tonight reported court documents obtained in January 2021 claim he held a gun to her head on two separate occasions in 2000 and again in 2001. The documents also allege he punched her in the head/face twice, and also kicked down the door to her bedroom where she was allegedly “hiding from his rage in 2016.”
