Dr. Dre has been ordered to pay ex-wife Nicole Young spousal support to the tune of $3.5 million a year.
The music mogul must deliver the cash in monthly installments of $293,306 starting Aug. 1, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Michael R. Powell ruled Tuesday, according to a new court filing.
Dre, whose full name is Andre Young, also must continue to cover expenses for the ex-couple’s Malibu and Pacific Palisades homes as well as Nicole’s health insurance, the judge said.
The order shall remain in place “until the party receiving support remarries or enters into a new domestic partnership, death of either party or until further order of the court,” Judge Powell ruled.
Nicole, 51, filed for divorce from the 56-year-old super producer and Beats Electronics entrepreneur in June 2020, citing alleged physical and emotional abuse during their 24-year marriage.
Two months later, she challenged their prenup in court, arguing it was signed under duress and later torn up by Dr. Dre.
The ex-couple’s legal wrangling remains ongoing, but the court agreed to declare each party legally single last month.
Nicole’s lawyers claim the hip-hop icon’s net worth is “in the ballpark of $1 billion dollars” and that the fortune was “largely earned” during the marriage.
The exes share two adult children — daughter Truly, 20, and son Truice, 24.
