Court orders Dr. Dre to pay ex-wife $300K per month in spousal support
Dr. Dre's estranged wife, Nicole Young, won quite the victory in court after a judge ordered Dr. Dre to pay her $300,000 per month in spousal support.
According to legal documents, obtained by The Blast, the music mogul must cough out over $3.5 million per year – as long as Nicole remains a spinster.
Dre, real name Andre Young and Nicole were married for 24 years before calling it quits. They share two adult children – a daughter named Truly and a son named Truth.
It's no news that the duo has been at war over the finances in their divorce after the rapper claimed they entered into a prenuptial agreement that made his businesses separate property.
In regards to the court's ruling, Dre agreed to pay the significant spousal support.
According to the court documents, 56-year-old Dr Dre is ordered to cut a check in the amount of $293,306 per month to his ex-wife, which is due on the first of every month.
"[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. That equals a whopping $3,519,672 a year in support, not including other expenses.
Nicole, 51, is guaranteed $300,000 per month as long as she doesn't remarry, according to the court order.
Dre will also pay her health insurance which will be similar to the coverage she had during the marriage.
