A court has ordered American music executive, Andre Romelle Young, professionally known as Dr Dre to pay his ex-wife, Nicole Young $300,000 (N151M) in spousal support every month.
According to reports, the billionaire music mogul and his ex-wife went to court for a hearing this week, hashing out specifics of the sum to be paid in temporary spousal support.
In the order, Dr. Dre was ordered to pay $293,306 per month to his ex-wife, which is due on the first of every month.
“[Dre] is ordered to pay to the [Nicole] spousal support in the sum of $293,306.00 per month, payable on the first of each month, commencing August 1, 2021. Dre will pay a total of $3,519,672 per year until Nicole remarries or “enters into a new domestic partnership,” the court document read.
Dre is to do that or take the option of paying $3.5M annually to Nicole until she remarries.
The 56-year-old music executive is also responsible for paying his ex-wife’s health insurance and other fees, including “the expenses for the Malibu, and Pacific Palisades homes.”
Reports also say the superior court judge’s decision is only temporary until a final decision is reached.
Miss Young filed for divorce from Dre in June after 24 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for her split from him.
Dre and Nicole Young got married in 1996. It was the first marriage for Dre. Young was previously married to NBA player Sedale Threatt. The pair share two adult children together, daughter Truly Young, 19, and son Truice Young, 23. Dre has four children from previous relationships.
