Wife Of Dr. Dre Boldly Defying Pre-Nup With New Claims In $1Billion Divorce Battle
Well well, well…many folks assumed it was only a matter of time before Nicole Young, the wife of hip hop mogul, Andre “Dr. Dre” Young would push back against their longstanding pre-nup and go after the big bucks…and now, here we are. They married in 1996, but in case you haven’t heard, the Mrs. hit Dre with divorce papers recently. Not sure what sparked the divorce, but clearly, what sparked Nicole’s new ambition within their divorce proceedings is that nearly billion dollars her soon-to-be-ex-hubby is worth, no doubt.
Fortunately for Dr. Dre, they have a pre-nup in tact. Unfortunately for Dr. Dre, his wife is an attorney who seems to know exactly which loopholes to find in oder to get a pre-nup overturned by a judge. Peep what the wifey is now claiming in efforts to trash the pre-nup she signed in ’96…
Wife Claims She Was Forced To Sign
Via TMZ– Nicole says Dre is now worth $1 bil, and says before they tied the knot, “I was extremely reluctant, resistant and afraid to sign the agreement and felt backed into a corner. Given the extraordinary pressure and intimidation by Andre, I was left with no option but to hire a lawyer (of course, with the help of Andre’s team of professionals) and unwillingly signed the agreement very shortly before our marriage.”
She then says 2 years into the marriage, “Andre acknowledged to me that he felt ashamed he had pressured me into signing a premarital agreement and he tore up multiple copies of the agreement in front of me. Since the day he tore up the agreements, we both understood that there was no premarital agreement, and that it was null and void.”
Dr. Dre’s Camp Disputes Wife’s Claims
According to what close sources to Dr. Dre stated, he’s disputing every last one of Nicole’s latest claims. His camp says the Mrs. was never forced to sign the pre-nup, she had a lawyer of her own and had the choice to sign it or not back in 1996. They’re also saying that Dr. Dre never tore up their pre-nup, nor felt ashamed of it and he that he did not tell Nicole it was invalid.
The Mrs. is requesting that the judge separate the pre-nup from the divorce situation.
Nicole may be well versed at knowing how to maneuver in relationships/marriages with wealthy men. *Fun fact: As we previously reported, prior to marrying the N.W.A. icon in 1996, Nicole was married to an NBA baller as well. Only time will tell who is going to win this current divorce battle though. We’ll keep y’all posted ILOSM fam.’
