Dr. Dre will pay a hefty sum for spousal support amid his divorce.The hip-hop mogul was ordered to pay his ex-wife, Nicole Young, about $3.5 million in yearly support, according to court documents obtained by ET.Dre is expected to pay the monthly sum of $293,306, which adds up to $3,519,672 in yearly support, starting in August. Per the document, the payments will continue "in a like manner until the party receiving support remarries or enters into a new domestic partnership, death of either party or until further order of the court."Additionally, Dre will also continue to pay the expenses for their Malibu and Pacific Palisades homes.A source tells ET, "The support order is consistent with what he has already been paying since the initial separation and is a fraction of what Nicole and her lawyers demanded."This latest development comes over a month after a judge restored the legal status of "single" to both Dre and Young.Amid their divorce, the former couple has been fighting the validity of their prenuptial agreement, which will determine their property settlement. Young has consistently argued that the prenup is invalid, while Dre has fought for the agreement to be upheld by the court.Young filed for divorce in June 2020, after 24 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. The pair shares two adult children, son Truice and daughter Truly. Their separation has not been amicable as Young previously claimed in court documents obtained by ET that the "Forgot About Dre" rapper held a gun to her head on two occasions, once in 2000 and again in 2001. She also claimed 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."While in past filings, Dre stated, "At no time did I abuse Nicole or threaten her physical safety," Nicole claims that he "blatantly lies."At the time, she also argued that Dre should pay for all her expenses in the manner he did during the marriage. Per court docs also obtained by ET in early January, Dre did agree to pay Nicole $500,000 in attorney fees and agreed to a temporary spousal support payment of $2 million.RELATED CONTENT:Dr. Dre Now Legally Single Amid Divorce CaseDr. Dre Back In the Studio After Hospitalization for Brain AneurysmDr. Dre's Estranged Wife Nicole Young Claims He Held a Gun to Her Head Amid DivorceDr. Dre’s Wife Nicole Young Requests Nearly $2 Million a Month in Spousal Support Amid DivorceThis video is unavailable because we were unable to load a message from our sponsors.If you are using ad-blocking software, please disable it and reload the page.

She also claimed 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.""His long-term abuse must be a factor that the court takes into account in awarding support and fees," she added in the filing.While in past filings, Dre stated, "At no time did I abuse Nicole or threaten her physical safety." Young went on to argue that Dre should pay for all her expenses in the manner he did during the marriage. Meanwhile, per new court docs also obtained by ET in early January, Dre did agree to pay Nicole $500,000 in attorney fees. Dre also agreed to a temporary spousal support payment of $2 million.The rapper agreed to continue to cover Young's living expenses at her Malibu home, as well as her mother's Pacific Palisades house for the next several months.

Dr. Dre's estranged wife, Nicole Young, is making new claims against the music mogul.In court documents obtained by ET, Nicole claims that the "Forgot About Dre" rapper 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."While 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," she adds.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.""I have also offered extensive and painful testimony about Andre's relentless campaign of abuse and control over me for more than half of my life," she says. "It is misleading, revolting and insulting for Andre to suggest that I have not been abused because, as a victim of relentless abuse and isolation, I did not create and maintain a contemporaneous record of abuse inflicted on me."She goes on to argue that Dre should pay for all her expenses in the manner he did during the marriage.Dr. Dre's Home Target of Potential Attempted Burglary as He Remains HospitalizedThis video is unavailable because we were unable to load a message from our sponsors.If you are using ad-blocking software, please disable it and reload the page.Embed CodeRestartDr. Dre's Home Target of Potential Attempted Burglary as He Remains HospitalizedNicole filed for divorce from Dre on June 29, after 24 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. The estranged couple shares two adult children, son Truice and daughter Truly. The new details come almost a week after ET confirmed that Dre agreed to a temporary spousal support payment of $2 million.
