American music icon, Dr Dre has been ordered by a court to pay his ex-wife, Nicole Young the sum of $300,000 in spousal support every month.
The billionaire music guru is to pay that sum or exercise the option of paying $3.5M annually to Nicole till she remarries.
According to Radar, the superior court’s decision is only temporal and will hold until a final decision is reached.
The court document sighted by Radar read: “[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.”
Also, Dre was ordered by the Judge to keep paying for Nicole’s health insurance.
Dre and Nicole have persisted in fighting legally about their prenup.
Nicole once appealed for the prenup to be nullified, but Dre disagreed with that arrangement.
Also, Nicole had alleged that Dre said he would not carry out the prenup, which Dre has said, is not true.
Nicole later filed for divorce from Dre. She cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for her separation from the hip-hop icon.
The couple tied the knot in 1996 and their union is blessed with two adults, Triuce and Truly.
