Dr. Dre’s wallet is about to run out of cash at this rate.
According to court documents seen by CN News on Thursday, the 56-year-old recording entrepreneur was ordered to pay his estranged wife, Nicole Young, $397,299 each month in spousal support beginning August 1.
This works up to around $4.8 million each year.
Until she remarries or engages into a domestic partnership, or until the court determines otherwise, the former NWA member will be required to pay the huge sum to Young.
Dre was also ordered to continue paying bills for the Malibu and Pacific Palisades residences that the couple used to share, which makes sense given that a source close to the case informed Page Six that he owns the properties outright.
The spousal support sum is also commensurate with what he’s been paying recently, according to the source, and is a fraction of the $2.7 million per month that Young requested in September 2020.
The couple is scheduled to appear in court again today.
In June 2020, Young, 51, filed for divorce from Dre, 56. The couple has two adult children, 24-year-old son Truice and 20-year-old daughter Truly, and have been married for 24 years.
Two months after the filing, he began paying her temporary spousal support.
Dre’s estimated nett worth is currently at $1 billion, and the former marriage had a prenuptial agreement in place.
Despite the fact that they were still working out the details of their divorce, they requested a California judge to sign off on formally dissolving their marriage in April 2021.
Young’s lawyers did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
