Following a tumultuous week that included a trip to the hospital for a brain aneurysm and an attempted burglary on his home in Los Angeles, Dr. Dre has reportedly struck a temporary agreement in his legal battle with his estranged wife.
TMZ reports the 55-year-old music mogul has agreed to make a one-time payment of $2 million to Nicole Young — that is, until their next divorce hearing, set for April.
Nicole was demanding $2 mil per month, plus another $5 million in attorney’s fees. Nicole was seeking $2 million a month in temporary spousal support from Dre, according to documents obtained by the gossip website.
The settlement calls for Dre to continue to cover Nicole’s living expenses at her Malibu home, as well as her mother’s Pacific Palisades house for the next several months, according to TMZ.
Additionally, he won’t have to cover Nicole’s security costs. That will have to come out of the $2 million.
The ex-couple’s lawyers struck the deal in court, but Dre reportedly had to sign the agreement from his bed at Cedars Sinai Hospital.
Nicole filed for divorce from Dre in June, after 24 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. The estranged couple shares two adult children, son Truice and daughter Truly.
