Dr. Dre, the American music mogul, has been ordered by a court to pay his ex-wife Nicole Young $300,000 (N151M) in spousal support on a monthly basis.
The billionaire music executive must do so or pay Nicole $3.5 million per year until she remarries.
The superior court judge’s decision, according to Radar, is only temporary until a final decision is reached.
“[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 obtained by Radar read.
Dre was also ordered by the judge to continue paying for Nicole’s health insurance.
Dre and Nicole’s legal battle over their prenup has raged on.
Nicole has asked for the prenup to be annulled, but Dre is not on board with that plan.
Young has also claimed that Dre said he would not honor the prenup, which he denies.
Nicole filed for divorce from the multimillionaire rapper in 2020. She cited irreconcilable differences as the cause of her breakup with the hip-hop mogul.
The couple married in 1996 and has two adult children, Triuce and Truly.
Young is a trained lawyer who was previously married to NBA player Sedale Threatt.
