The divorce proceedings between Dr. Dre and Nicole Young will continue for a while, but a judge has agreed to the musician’s request to give them both official status alone, according to Entertainment Tonight.
Nicole and Andre Young, as Dr. Dre is actually called, announced in March 2020 that they were divorcing after 24 years of marriage. They have two adult children.
Since then, she and their lawyers have been squating over the distribution of the wealth he has built up with his music career and electronics brand Beats By Dr. Dre. It would amount to more than USD 800 million (some EUR 656 million).
The two married under prenuptial agreements, but Nicole claims Dr Dre always told her he wouldn’t run them if they ever broke up. She even states in court documents that the musician once tore up the conditions in front of her. Dr. Dre denies that.
Until the divorce is finalized, Dr. Dre will pay for the livelihoods of his ex and her mother, plus nearly three tons a month in child support. She wanted to increase that to 2 million doller per month, but the musician refused. However, he did give her a one-off $2 million perk earlier this year.
