Dr. Dre Agrees to Pay Estranged Wife $2 Million in Temporary Spousal Support

Dr. Dre has reportedly agreed to pay estranged wife Nicole Young $2 million in spousal support as he recovers from a brain aneurysm.

According to legal documents obtained by The Blast this week, the hip-hop producer and the lawyer have reportedly reached an agreement where Young will be advanced the money by this Monday.

Per the agreement, Young will be responsible for covering her living expenses and security fees until April.

On Thursday, People also obtained court documents that said a “stipulation has been reached between the parties.”

“Spousal Support filed by Nicole Young is continued to April 14, 2021 at 8:30 a.m,” the documents stated.

Back in June, Young filed for divorce from the rapper, citing irreconcilable differences. The two have been married for 24 years, tying the knot in 1996.

Since the filing, the two have engaged in a tumultuous legal battle that has made headlines around the Internet. Most recently, TMZ reported on Tuesday that Young’s CPA claimed Dre has $262 million in cash and Apple stock — implying he has enough money to pay her attorney fees and to “maintain the status quo” of her lifestyle.

That same day, the outlet broke the news that Dre suffered an aneurysm on Monday and was rushed by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Later that day, Dre posted an update on Instagram, saying he is doing well and should be out of the hospital soon.

“Thanks to my family, friends and fans for their interest and well wishes. I’m doing great and getting excellent care from my medical team,” he wrote. “I will be out of the hospital and back home soon. Shout out to all the great medical professionals at Cedars. One Love!!”

Unfortunately, hours after this post, TMZ reported that four men were on the rapper’s Pacific Palisades property that night around 2 a.m.

Before the alleged would-be thieves could enter the 55-year-old’s residence, they were confronted by security, who quickly called police. They were eventually arrested for attempted burglary.

Per the outlet, law enforcement sources believe the men saw the report about his aneurysm and allegedly saw an opportunity to steal.
