Dr Dre ‘to pay estranged wife $2million’ in temporary support amid divorce

Dr Dre has reportedly agreed to pay his estranged wife Nicole Young $2million (£1.47million) in temporary support ahead of their next divorce hearing. 

The music mogul, 55, who is currently in hospital recovering from a brain aneurysm, is said to have made the one-off payment to Nicole, but she will be liable for her own divorce attorney fees according to TMZ. 

The site reported that Nicole had allegedly asked for $2million (£1.47million) a month plus another $5million (£3.7million) in attorney’s fees, something a court recently denied and the pair are due to have another divorce hearing in April. 

Sources have claimed Dre is going to continue paying Nicole’s living expenses at her home in Malibu as well as those of her mother’s home in the Pacific Palisades for the next few months, but he will not pay her security costs which she is expected to cover from the $2million. 

Dre, who is worth an estimated $800million (£650million) according to Forbes magazine, married Nicole in 1996 and the couple share two children – a son, Truice, 23, and a daughter, Truly, 19.

He reportedly had to sign the deal for the one-off payment from hospital, where he is still receiving treatment. 

Dre had been rushed into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles earlier in the week after suffering a brain aneurysm, but told fans he was ‘doing great’. 

He shared an update on Instagram, telling his followers: ‘Thanks to my family, friends and fans for their interest and well wishes. 

‘I’m doing great and getting excellent care from my medical team. I will be out of the hospital and back home soon. Shout out to all the great medical professionals at Cedars. One Love!!’

His home in the Pacific Palisades was also said to be targeted by burglars after he was taken to hospital in an ambulance, with TMZ reporting that four men had been caught on the property though thankfully were spotted by security before they could gain access to the house.
