Dr. Dre and Nicole Young Reach an Agreement in Principle to Finalize Divorce

Dr. Dre and Nicole Young have reached an agreement in principle to finally put their divorce to bed.
The two had been at war over money for well over a year, Nicole wanted $2 million a month in temporary spousal support, and Dre ended up ponying a one-time check for $2 mil and $500k in attorney fees.
A photo showing the producer and businessman with balloons that read “Divorced AF” started to make rounds on social media Friday.
Sources with direct knowledge says that no deal has yet been signed, and as one source put it, “This whole thing could blow up again.”
Dr. Dre and Nicole Young got married in 1996 and broke up in March 2020, with Young moving out of their home and into a Malibu property owned by Dre. She then filed for divorce in June 2020, with the case taking many twists along the way. Dre was accused of domestic violence and having a number of mistresses throughout the trial, with Young requesting $4 million to pay for her lawyers.
During a recent court declaration, Dr. Dre’s final text message to Nicole Young in August 2020 was revealed to be, “Let’s keep it friendly and peaceful. Over and Out. I love you.” In November, he admitted he “did not know the woman” he married.
“There were never any domestic violence claims made by Nicole before or during our marriage, formal or informal,” he said. “At no time were the police ever called during our marriage. I was present for Nicole’s deposition. She testified that there are no witnesses to the alleged abuse and she admitted that she never told anyone, including her mother or siblings or other family or friends about any alleged abuse.”
