Rap legend and entrepreneur Dr. Dre suffered a huge setback in court with a judge siding with his estranged wife Nicole Young and ordering the music mogul to hand over all his financial documents. It’s the latest development in a lengthy divorce battle between the former couple.
According to court documents obtained by Daily Mail, the Los Angeles Superior Court judge ordered Dre to hand over the records by Friday. The order states if he doesn’t hand over all financial information he will face a $100,000-a-day sanction until his ex has them in her hands.
The judge said Dre has to reveal the details of how he spends his money and the amount of income he receives from his royalties. Nicole has been fighting Dre over the records and accused him of dragging his feet on producing them in the divorce.
Nicole previously asked for Dre to be sanctioned for allegedly playing dirty legal games. She scored a big win with the court siding with her on this motion.
Earlier this year, Nicole filed for divorce from Dre following 24 years of marriage. In her petition, Nicole did not mention a prenuptial agreement being signed before the marriage. She said they did sign one before getting hitched but said Dre tore it up years into their marriage.
The monthly expenses include $10k for laundry and cleaning, $135k for clothes, $60k on tuition and living expenses, $900k for entertainment, $125k for charitable contributions, and $100k for a mortgage.
Dre fired back at the $2 million a month request. He said Nicole doesn’t need that much money to cover her expenses, especially since he is still paying for a bunch of them.
The music mogul also fought back against her prenup claims. According to him, they have a valid agreement that he never tore up. Dre is asking the court to enforce the terms of the deal.
