Dr. Dre agreed on January 6 to “advance” his estranged wife, Nicole Young, $2 million — and cover all of her bills for now, according to a recently filed court document. TMZ appears to have first reported on the deal.
The rapper, whose legal name is Andre Young, agreed to “maintain the financial status quo, including but not limited to‚ the payment of all of Nicole’s expenses consistent with her spending since their date of Separation, which includes paying for all expenses relating to the Malibu residence and the residence in the Palisades,” the stipulation states. As for the $2 million, he agreed to “advance the sum … on or before January 11, 2021.”
Dre is not going to pay for Nicole’s protection, though. Per the paperwork, Nicole is “responsible for the payment of her security expenses” until April 14, when both sides are expected in court to discuss her request for spousal support and legal fees.
News of the agreement comes as Dre recovers from a brain aneurysm. He reportedly had an aneurism on January 5 and was hospitalized in Cedars-Sinai Medical Center’s intensive care unit. Dre's legal team should be very suspicious about his mental capacity right now. The timing of this sudden agreement of "an advance" seems strange after previous legal battles denied his former wife any monetary compensation and Dre's current health.
