Dr. Dre has had quite the week. With the super producer suffering a brain aneurysm and the subsequent robbery attempt as a result of his absence has been quite a bit. And in the midst of all of this, he’s still embroiled in a divorce and alimony battle with his estranged wife, Nicole Young.
But according to TMZ, there is at least some headway on that front. For now, Dr. Dre has agreed to pay Young a one-time sum of $2 million while the former couple continues to iron out their final divorce settlement.
They meet again in April.
This $2 million does not include lawyer’s fees. Nicole Young will figure out how she’ll pay for that herself.
Nicole was requesting not only the $2 million but an additional $5 million to cover her attorney’s fees.
Dr. Dre will continue to cover Nicole’s living expenses in the Malibu home as well as her mother’s home in Pacific Palisades home for the next several months.
He is refusing to pay for the security she maintains.
While the deal was struck between the estranged couple’s lawyers in court, Dre signed the documents from his bed in Cedars Sinai Hospital.
Up until now, Dre had been paying $293,306 per month in temporary support.
Dre is reportedly recovering from the brain aneurysm after he was rushed to the emergency room at Cedars-Sinai in L.A. He was taken directly to the ICU.
Shortly afterward, he told fans, through his Instagram, that he was receiving excellent care and should be home soon.
