The legal divorce battle between Dr. Dre and his estranged wife Nicole Young has come to rest.
The hip-pop mogul who’s real name is Andre Romelle Young, has secured a major victory in his divorce battle after a Los Angeles judge ruled that he doesn’t have to pay his estranged wife the $6.5 million she requested for legal and living expenses amid their split.
Dismissing Nicole request, the judge noting that she had previously fired a security team Dre was originally funding. But Young’s legal team argued he was too “controlling” and wanted her own security team.
The judge rejected her request and ordered that Nicole could select a private security company for her personal protection.
The judge also said this case did not appear to be critical in terms of the presence of domestic violence, and that if Dre was overpowering her in any way, she should file for a restraining order from the rapper.
Young filed for divorce in June, citing “irreconcilable differences.” She requested $2 million per month in temporary spousal support in addition to the $5 million for her legal fees.
Nicole Young had requested Dr. Dre pay $5 million for her lawyers’ fees and $1.5 in incidental expenses including security after her legal team said she’s getting death threats,TMZ reports.
They both got married on May 25, 1996, have two adult children together: son Truice and daughter Truly. In all, the producer has six children, four sons, and two daughters by five different women. One of his sons called Andre Young Jr is late.
