Dr. Dre has denied his estranged wife’s abuse claims amid their ongoing divorce battle.
The 56-year-old hip-hop mogul filed new legal documents in his already ugly divorce with the 51-year-old mother-of-two as he claims that her abuse allegations are false, according to a report from TMZ.
In the documents, Dre real name Andre Romelle Young called the claims “appalling”. He also denies abusing Nicole before they were married, including the night before their wedding.
He also accused Nicole of bringing up abuse claims in an attempt to squeeze money out of him as there is $1billion on the line.
The new documents come after Dre was granted “single status” from a judge during their divorce.
The music mogul ‘s attorney Laura Wasser had filed court documents ‘requesting a bifurcation of Dre’s divorce,’ which would declare himself and Young ‘single.’
“Dre says his divorce from his estranged wife, Nicole Young, has gotten to the point of no return,” the court documents read.
He also alleged in the court docs that he has ‘been trying to settle the divorce with Nicole since she filed in June 2020,’ but claimed she is purposely ‘dragging her feet.’
It also comes after Dre recently agreed to pay Nicole US$2 million (approx. $3.2 million) in temporary spousal support to cover her living expenses. In the legal docs obtained by The Blast, the money should be used to cover her living expenses until they can agree on a final figure.
The former couple has been trying to settle their divorce since Young filed in June last year.
Young and Dre share two children: 23-year-old son Truice and 19-year-old daughter Truly. Dre also has four children from previous relationships. The exes tied the knot in 1996.
