Dr. Dre's vitriolic divorce is getting more and more personal.
According to a new report, a process server for Nicole Young, Dre's ex-wife, attempted to serve the rapper with legal documents at the cemetery this week. He was there burying his grandmother, who helped raise him.
TMZ reports that the bitterness between the former couple is so bad that they can't even agree on where Dre was confronted by the process server on Monday. Dre and his team allege that he was served at the burial site as he stood by his grandmother's casket. Nicole's team claims the music mogul was served in the cemetery's parking lot after the burial.
The exes also can't agree on what happened next, as Dre sources said he didn't take the documents in hand, prompting the server to leave the documents by the graveside. Sources close to Nicole said the server left the documents in the parking lot.
The report alleges that the paperwork being served involved attorney's fees. In the midst of the couple's legal back-and-forth over the past 16 months, a judge signed an order declaring that Dre (real name: Andre Young) owes Nicole $1,550,000 in attorney's fees. Dre, however, felt that was an error and paid $325,433. The legal docs served to Dre on Oct. 18 demand the difference of $1,224,567.
Dre and Nicole's split has been acrimonious at best. In late June 2020, she 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. However, Dre legally responded to the filing a few weeks later, contending that division of property should be governed by their prenup. Nicole argued that she "unwillingly" signed the prenup in 1996 and said it wasn't valid because Dre "ripped it up" a few years later.
While all this played out, Nicole requested $2M a month in spousal support, but a judge rebuffed that request, declaring Dre pay her $293,306 per month. Throughout the course of the split, Nicole has also accused him of abuse and insisted that she co-owned some of Dre's most valuable trademarks, including his stage name. He accused her of embezzlement.
