Dr Dre officially declared single amid bitter divorce battle with estranged wife

Dr Dre officially declared single amid bitter divorce battle with estranged wife

Dr. Dre is legally a single man after a judge signed off on his request to be divorced from ex Nicole Young.

The 56-year-old rap superstar had been married to Nicole since 1996, but he is now said to be ‘officially divorced’, according to TMZ.

However, the estranged pair are still in a bitter battle over the validity of a prenup.

Dre is insisting the prenup stands, but Nicole claims the hip hop icon said he wouldn’t enforce it and wants it to be declared invalid.

The 51-year-old former lawyer previously claimed the Forgot About Dre hitmaker – whose real name is Andre Young – tore up multiple copies of the prenup after they married because he regretted ‘pressuring’ her to sign it.

But Dre has denied her claims and pointed out a clause within the agreement that stated any alterations must be in writing.

He is said to have wanted to remove the case from the court system and have a private judge handle their divorce, so it could be done out of the spotlight, but Nicole reportedly rejected the request.

In April, Dre was ordered by a court to pay $500,000 (£353,090) to Nicole’s divorce lawyers.

She had asked Los Angeles Judge Michael Powell to force Dre to fork out $2million (£1.4m) per month in spousal support and $5million (£3.5m) for her attorney fees.

But, during a hearing, the Superior Court Judge ordered Dre to pay her lawyers $500,000 within 10 days, while a decision on the spousal support issue has been delayed until another hearing on July 8.

In January, Dre agreed to pay Nicole $2 million in spousal support, which was to cover the period up until April 14.

Nicole had been asking for more than $2 million a month, but Dre’s lawyer previously told the court her client has been voluntarily paying all her expenses since they split.

She also sought $5 million in attorney’s fees but her estranged husband said he has already paid close to $1 million (£706,060) voluntarily, even though the divorce documents weren’t even filed until June last year.

Dre has denied Nicole’s allegations of emotional and physical abuse.
