American music mogul Andre Romelle Young, popularly called Dr. Dre, has been ordered to pay his estranged wife Nicole Young about $3.5 million a year in spousal support, which breaks down to nearly $300,000 a month, according to reports from Page Six, The Blast and Radar Online.
The millionaire music executive is to do that or take the option of paying $3.5M annually to Nicole until she remarries.
According to the report, the superior court judge’s decision is only temporary until a final decision is reached.
“[Dre] is ordered to pay to the [Nicole] spousal support in the sum of $293,306.00 per month, payable on the first of each month, commencing August 1, 2021,” Dre will pay a total of $3,519,672 per year until Nicole remarries or “enters into a new domestic partnership,” the court document obtained by Radar read.
The judge also ordered Dre to keep paying for Nicole’s health insurance.
Dre and Nicole have continued to fight legally about their prenup.
Nicole has appealed for the prenup to be nullified, but Dre has disagreed with that arrangement.
Young has also alleged that Dre said he wouldn’t carry out the prenup, which he has said, isn’t true.
Nicole filed for divorce from the millionaire rapper back in 2020, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for her split from the hip-hop mogul.
The couple got married in 1996 and are blessed with two adult children, Triuce and Truly.
Young was formerly married to NBA player, Sedale Threatt, and is a trained lawyer.
