Dr. Dre Agrees to Pay Estranged Wife $2 Million in Spousal Support
Dr. Dre has agreed to pay his estranged wife Nicole Young $2 million in temporary spousal support.
Amid their contentious divorce, Dre and Nicole’s lawyers struck the deal in court this week while Dre signed off from his hospital bed at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where he is recovering from a brain aneurysm.
According to TMZ, Dre will write Nicole a one-time check for $2 million, but he won’t pay the $5 million she demanded in attorney’s fees. He won’t make another payment at least until the next divorce hearing in April. It will be up to Nicole to decide how much she pays her lawyers.
Additionally, Dre will continue to cover Nicole’s living expenses at her Malibu house, as well as her mother’s Pacific Palisades home for the next several months. However, he won’t cover her security costs. Nicole had been receiving $293,306 a month in temporary support.
Dre suffered a brain aneurysm on Monday (Jan. 4) and was rushed by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai. He remains in “stable and lucid” condition in the intensive-care unit. He told fans that he is “doing great” and expects to be released from the hospital soon.
While he was hospitalized, a group of men tried to break into his house, but they were caught by police and arrested for attempted burglary.
