Nicole Young, Dr. Dre’s estranged wife, has detailed why she claims to need $2 million a month in temporary spousal support in a new legal filing.
In the legal paperwork, obtained by TMZ, Nicole is asking for $1,936,399 to cover her expenses, indicating she needs $100,000 a month for her mortgage and $900,000 a month in entertainment. She lays out the cost of more monthly necessities, as well, claiming she needs $135,000 a month for clothes and needs $20,000 a month for her cell phone, email and telephone.
Nicole, who’s currently staying at the duo’s house in Malibu, Calif., claims Dre cut off her access to her American Express Black card, which he supposedly pays for.
In late June, Nicole filed for divorce from the hip hop mogul, who she was married to for 24 years. It was later revealed that the duo has a prenuptial agreement, but that has become a point of contention.
Nicole previously claimed she “unwillingly” signed the documents amid pressure from the rapper and his team. She also said Dre, who valued at around $1 billion, ripped up the agreement a few years into their marriage, something he denies.
In her new documentation, Nicole also alleged that Dre has a “history of violence and coercive control, both before and during the marriage.”
Although TMZ she does not elaborate on her claims, she detailed one text message that Dre allegedly sent her after the divorce.
“Why are you ignoring me? Why are you ignoring me … should I come see you?” he allegedly text her.
Nicole found the message “frightening.”
