Divorce proceedings can get ugly and expensive. After Nicole Young filed for divorce from Dr. Dre in June citing “irreconcilable differences,” court docs revealed on Thursday (September 3) she’s looking for a shade under $2 million per month from the billionaire Hip Hop mogul.
According to TMZ, the eye-opening monthly breakdown goes as follows: $10,000 for laundry, $135,000 for clothes, $60,000 for education, $900,000 for entertainment, $125,000 for charitable contributions, $100,000 to cover the mortgage, and $20,000 on a cell phone and other forms of technological communication.
Dre is reportedly covering all of her expenses in the meantime, which includes the Malibu house she’s currently occupying with security, chefs and more. Young is also claiming that Dr. Dre isn’t letting her spend their money, as he’s remained in control of the finances. She alleges that Dre has been verbally abusive toward her, citing a late-night incident at their West Los Angeles home on April 1.
As far as their prenup, Young says she was essentially forced to sign the document just before their wedding and claims Dre ripped up the prenup years ago, which he vehemently denies.
“I was extremely reluctant, resistant and afraid to sign the agreement and felt backed into a corner,” Young reportedly stated in legal documents filed in August. “Given the extraordinary pressure and intimidation by Andre, I was left with no option but to hire a lawyer (of course, with the help of Andre’s team of professionals) and unwillingly signed the agreement very shortly before our marriage.”
With up to $1 billion at stake in the coming months, Young’s also asking Dre to cover her $5 million legal fees.
