Dr. Dre‘s estranged wife Nicole Young is demanding almost $2 million a month in temporary spousal support to maintain the life of caviar and champagne that she has grown accustomed to as the wife of a billionaire mogul.
Young filed court documents detailing her monthly expenses to justify the excessive amount of cash sh’s asking for as their divorce battle continues.
According to TMZ.com, 50-year-old mother-of-two is requesting $1,936,399 per month in spousal support, in addition to $5 million to cover her legal fees.
It seems Young and her legal team have chosen to ignore the iron-clad prenuptial agreement Dre has in place.
“Dre’s going to push back, arguing Nicole doesn’t need anywhere close to that amount since her lifestyle hasn’t changed,” a source told TMZ. “Nicole, on the other hand, will argue she doesn’t want to depend on Dre paying all the bills … thus the need for temporary support.”
Young filed for divorce from the rap mogul, real name Andre Romelle Young, in June after 24 years of marriage.
Since her filing, the former couple have clashed over the validity of their prenup agreement, with Young confirming that while she signed the document, Dre ripped it up in front of her as a gesture of his love for her at the time.
Unfortunately, Young didn’t pick up the shredded pieces for safe keeping.
