Dr. Dre and his estranged wife Nicole Young are going through what appears to be a contentious divorce. On Thursday (September 3), court docs revealed Young is seeking $2 million a month in temporary spousal support, which understandably came as quite a shock to the general public.
Although Dre is one of Hip Hop’s only billionaires, that’s an exorbitant amount of money for anyone. Needless to say, 50 Cent’s response to Young’s request isn’t surprising. Not long after the news broke, the television mogul took his thoughts to Instagram and shared a screenshot of a Daily Mail article with the headline, “Dr. Dre’s estranged wife Nicole Young wants $2M in monthly support.”
Fiddy captioned the post, “these bitches be crazy how do you even ask for 2 million a month.”
Young filed for divorce in June, citing “irreconcilable differences.” The couple was married for over two decades and have two adult children together. Initially, it was believed there was no prenuptial agreement but ultimately, court docs revealed a document protecting Dre’s fortune did exist.
But Young and her attorneys argued Dre forced her into signing, later changed his mind and then ripped it up, which they say renders it invalid.
“I was extremely reluctant, resistant and afraid to sign the agreement and felt backed into a corner,” she allegedly wrote in legal documents filed last month. “Given the extraordinary pressure and intimidation by Andre, I was left with no option but to hire a lawyer and unwillingly signed the agreement very shortly before our marriage.”
Young is currently holed up at their Malibu compound, enjoying the many perks of their lavish lifestyle. Nonetheless, she still wants $1,936,399 in monthly spousal support as well as $5 million in lawyer fees, something Fiddy finds absolutely ludicrous.
