Dr. Dre is more than willing to pay his estranged wife spousal support, but he’ll get to keep the bulk of his $800 million fortune.
It turns out that the duo had a prenuptial agreement in place, TMZ reports.
In late June, Nicole Young, who married the hip-hop mogul in 1996, filed divorce paperwork, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. In her divorce filing, Nicole, a lawyer, didn’t mention that a prenuptial agreement existed.
In Dre’s new response to Nicole’s divorce filing, he has agreed to pay his ex her requested spousal support but said their division of property should be governed by their prenup.
While Nicole filed divorce paperwork in June, Dre lists the date of separation as March 27, 2020.
Because the couple’s two children — Truice and Truly — are adults, they will not have to battle for custody or child support (Dre has six children in total).
Forbes estimates Dre is worth $800 million.
