Rap mogul Dr. Dre and his estranged wife, Nicole Threatt Young, are at war over personal property he claims she has refused to return from the former couple's Malibu beach house.
In new legal documents, obtained by The Blast, the former N.W.A. rapper, real name Andre Romelle Young, alleges his wife is refusing to give him access to the Malibu beach house she moved into during their divorce proceedings.
Dre, 55, complained she won't allow him to send someone to pick up his golf clubs, a motorcycle, and a gun.
"Mr. Young sent someone to Malibu this morning to pick up some of his personal belongings (something Ms. Young does almost daily at the Brentwood home)," Dr. Dre's lawyer writes in a note to Nicole's attorneys. "At first, your client said ok, but after walking away for 5 minutes (assumedly to call your office) she came back and rejected the request.
"The items in question are Mr. Young's golf clubs, his motorcycle, and his registered firearm for return to the gun safe at Chalon (the couple's former Brentwood home)."
In the documents, Dre claims he has allowed Nicole access to his home to collect various items she has requested and is demanding he can retrieve his stuff from the beach house.
Dre argued his personal items are not community property because a valid prenuptial agreement is in place.
The rapper/producer and his wife also disagree over the validity of their prenup agreement. She confirmed she signed the document but he ripped it up in front of her as proof of his love for her at the time.
In the divorce, Dre claims all of his businesses and a large portion of his $1 billion fortune is his sole and separate property that she is not entitled to.
Dre and Nicole, 50, share four sons, Curtis, Marcel, Andre, and Truth, and a daughter named Truly. They were married for 24 years.
