“[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,” the order states. That comes to about $3.5 million in support per year, not including other expenses.
The couple also reportedly asked the court to declare them officially single, a request the judge granted.
Nicole Young filed for divorce from Dre in June 2020. They had been married for 24 years and have two children together.
Previous reports said Nicole Young had been seeking $2 million a month in temporary spousal support and $5 million for attorneys fees, according to reports.
Dr. Dre's yearly income is 35 million without spikes for business deals... the 3 million he pays to the mother of his children isn't the burden the think pieces tomorrow will indicate. Context is always important.
Dre is one of the founders of West Coast rap and is a former member of the World Class Wrecking Cru and later N.W.A. He’s also known for a remarkable solo career that popularized a trademark “G-funk” sound in the 1990s while he worked as a producer for Death Row Records. He is credited with discovering and launching the careers of Snoop Doggy Dogg and Eminem. He also helped produce some of the final tracks ever recorded by late rapper Tupac Shakur.
