A week after Dr. Dre won that big settlement against his ex wife, she had more drama to deal with. According to TMZ, Nicole Young is being investigated by the LAPD for alleged embezzelment. Dre’s business partner, Larry Chatman filed a report claiming Nicole had unlawfully taken thousands of dollars out of their joint account. Dre’s team is claiming Nicole embezzeled $385,029.
Rumors were going around that lawyers from both sides met last week and Nicole’s attorneys told the judge she had been receiving death threats, but the judge came back and denied that claim because Nicole fired her security staff, which Dre had been paying for.
In June, Nicole filed for divorce from the rapper and he’s awarded to pay her $300,000 a month in spousal support until the courts made a final decision. That decision ended up being $100,000 million; where he will pay half now and the other half next year.
Dre will also keep their real estate properties; and rights to his music and stock options, including the money earned from his sale of Beats by Dre.
Young, meanwhile, will keep four vehicles: a Rolls Royce, Cadillac Escalade, motorcycle and Range Rover. She’ll also keep her clothing; jewelry, bags and furs, which are estimated to be worth millions.
Dr. Dre Says He’s Glad He Doesn’t Have To Pay More
Dr. Dre has made it clear that he does not want to pay his estranged wife more than $2M in spousal support and characterized her demands as opportunistic and rooted in anger. So the $100 million he’s grateful. He says she could have gotten more if she would have gone to court sooner.
