Dr. Dre’s Estranged Wife Nicole Young Says He Punched Her In The Face & Held A Gun To Her Head
As previously reported, Nicole Young filed for divorce last summer. She and Dr. Dre were married for 24 years.
In court documents filed days ahead of his hospitalization, she alleged that he once held a gun to her head, punched her in the face, and pinned her against a wall as he held her by her neck.
She detailed the abuse after Dr. Dre previously claimed:
“At no time did I abuse Nicole or threaten her physical safety.”
Nicole Young alleged in court documents, according to The Daily Mail:
“I have explained in excruciating and painful detail the abuse that Andre has perpetrated against me over our more than 25 year-relationship. Andre held a gun to my head on two occasions, on January 8, 2000 and November 20 2001. Andre has punched me in the head/face on two occasions, in 1999 and on January 8, 2000.”
“Andre kicked down the door to a bedroom in which I was hiding from his rage in 2016. Andre has verbally and emotionally decimated my personhood to the extent that I currently suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome.”
While she confirmed Dr. Dre’s claims that police were never called to their home during their marriage, she also added:
“Andre conspicuously omits the fact that the police were called in approximately September 1995, shortly before our marriage, after he slammed me up against a wall and lifted me off the floor by my neck. During our marriage, I considered calling the police several times but, as I fell deeper into the abusive relationship, my fear of Andre outweighed any confidence I had that the police could help me.”
She then responded to Dr. Dre’s statement that there’s no proof of the abuse.
“First, there is documentary evidence of his abuse which has been produced. Second, I have also offered extensive and painful testimony about Andre’s relentless campaign of abuse and control over me for more than half my life. It is misleading, revolting, and insulting for Andre to suggest that I have not been abused because, as a victim of relentless abuse and isolation, I did not create and maintain a contemporaneous record of the abuse inflicted on me. It is well known and accepted that most victims of domestic violence do not have documentary evidence of their abuse.”
Doctors are reportedly performing tests to determine what caused the aneurysm. They also want him to stay in intensive care in case he has another one.
