There is a new development in Dr. Dre̵
Dre’s 1996 wife filed legal documents in September, seeking $ 1.9 million in installments each month, plus another $ 5 million to pay her lawyer.
In his official response at the time, Dre said the couple had a prenuptial agreement. Young claims she was forced to sign the document and her husband later tore it up.
Now, in a deal their lawyers have reached, the Next Episode artist won’t pay the $ 5 million. Young is reported to bear his own costs.
Like TMZ Dre, whose real name is Andre Young, will continue to pay for his wife’s living expenses at her home in Malibu and the cost of her mother’s place in the toned Pacific Palisades neighborhood of Los Angeles. He will not be responsible for Young’s security costs. The terms will be valid at least until their next divorce hearing, scheduled for April.
Yahoo Entertainment asked Dre’s representative for comment.
In June 2019 Forbes estimates that Dre is worth $ 800 million – between his music and his many entrepreneurial endeavors – and ranks him second on the list of the richest rappers in the world. Six months later, the magazine crowned him the most lucrative musician of the decade, even over Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Taylor Swift, thanks to the $ 950 million he earned during that period.
He reportedly signed the latest agreement with Young from his hospital bed at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he was taken Monday after suffering a brain aneurysm. However, in an update Tuesday night, Dre himself said he was “doing great.”
