Dr. Dre Ordered By Judge To Pay Nicole Young $500,000 For Legal Fees

The pair may have been recently declared officially single, but their divorce battle continues to rage on.

The latest development in the ongoing divorce between Dr. Dre (real name Andre Romelle Young) and Nicole Young includes the rapper and entrepreneur being ordered to pay $500,000. This decision was made earlier this week (Tuesday, April 27th) by Judge Powell of the LA Superior Court. The funds are to go to Nicole Young‘s attorneys for her legal fees. Dr. Dre has until May 7th to cough up the cash.

However, this amount is significantly less than the $5 million that Nicole Young originally requested from Dr. Dre for attorney fees. In fact, her $500K award for legal fees is a mere 10% of what Young originally requested from Dr. Dre. In addition to this amount, she also requested $2 million in monthly spousal support. Another hearing to give a ruling on her spousal support claim is set for July 8th.

This development is the latest in the ongoing, messy divorce battle between Dr. Dre and Nicole Young. The pair wed back in 1996, and Young filed for divorce in June 2020. Since that time, allegations of emotional and physical abuse dating back to the ’90s have been brought against Dr. Dre, and arguments regarding how much he should have to pay Young in spousal support have come about.
