Dr. Dre's Estranged Wife Claims He Held a Gun to Her Head
Dr. Dre's estranged wife, Nicole Young, is making new claims against the music him.
In court documents, Nicole claims that Dre held a gun to her head on two occasions, once in 2000 and again in 2001. She also claims that he punched her in the head/face twice, as well as kicked down the door to her bedroom when she was allegedly "hiding from his rage in 2016."
In past filings, Dre stated, “At no time did I abuse Nicole or threaten her physical safety.” Nicole claims that he "blatantly lies."
Nicole goes on to allege that throughout their marriage, Dre has "verbally and emotionally decimated my personhood to the extent that I currently suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome. His long-term abuse must be a factor that the court takes into account in awarding support and fees.”
Nicole also notes in the court documents that the police were never called during their marriage because she feared her husband. However, she does claim that he omitted "the fact that the police were called" in September 1995, before their marriage, when he allegedly "slammed me up against a wall and lifted me off the floor by my neck.”
She goes on to argue that Dre should pay for all her expenses in the manner he did during the marriage. Meanwhile, per new court documents, Dre did agree to pay Nicole $500,000 in attorney fees.
The new details come almost a week after Dre agreed to a temporary spousal support payment of $2 million. The rapper will continue to cover Nicole's living expenses at her Malibu home, as well as her mother's Pacific Palisades house for the next several months.
