Dr. Dre's estranged wife fighting prenup in high stakes divorce

Dr. Dre's estranged wife, Nicole Young, is challenging a prenuptial agreement from 1996, claiming she "unwillingly" signed the documents amid pressure from the rapper and his team.


In divorce documents obtained by TMZ, Nicole also claims Dre is actually far wealthier than most believe, listing his net worth at $1 billion — which is about $200 million higher than previously reported.

"I was extremely reluctant, resistant and afraid to sign the agreement and felt backed into a corner," she wrote in her new court filing amid the couple's increasingly contentious divorce. "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."

Two years into the marriage, Nicole contends that the rapper admitted he forced her to sign the prenup.

"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," she wrote. "Since the day he tore up the agreements, we both understood that there was no premarital agreement, and that it was null and void."

Sources close to Dre, though, tell TMZ that this is all false and deny that the hip-hop mogul ever tore up an agreement or expressed regret over the prenup. 

"Nicole had her own lawyer and she had a clear choice on whether to sign or not," TMZ reported, citing Dre sympathizers.


Nicole is asking the judge to separate the divorce from the prenup — meaning she wants a bigger piece of the pie.

In late June, Nicole 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. In his response, he agreed to pay his ex her requested spousal support but said their division of property should be governed by their prenup. 

No love lost

Meghan McCain rips Kathy Griffin after cancer diagnosis

While prayers and support poured in for Kathy Griffin after her cancer diagnosis, Meghan McCain took a different route.

While on "The View," the daughter of John McCain, who famously fought brain cancer before passing in 2018, tore into the comedian for unkind jokes she made two decades ago about singer Clay Aiken.

"My issue with Kathy Griffin is — I'm gonna name drop — Clay Aiken is one of my closest friends in the entire world. He's ostensibly my brother. She made very, very, very cruel and homophobic jokes about him before he was out of the closet," she said. "We have to go back to like 2002, 2003, when that was still acceptable. He is a very strong person, and has a very strong constitution, and he has said himself that he is one of the last people you can make homophobic jokes about and it's still socially acceptable."


Clay came out as gay in September 2008. Before he came out, Kathy often referred to him as "Gayken." 

"I think he's lucky he didn't end up becoming an opioid addict, given the degree of bullying that happened to him when he was still struggling to come out of the closet," Meghan said. "You can just go on YouTube and see a lot of the jokes that she made about him — and other comedians, but she really led it — so I would love to hear an apology, if she's doing this kind of soul searching, for what could've happened with my good friend. So I don't like her, I'm never gonna like her for all the jokes she made about Clay."

Prior to her fiery comments, Meghan did show a bit of compassion for Kathy's fight, but not necessarily for Kathy, who announced on Aug. 2 that she has lung cancer. In an interview with ABC, she also spoke of a secret opioid addiction and of contemplating suicide last year.

For those battles, Meghan seemed to be a little more sympathetic.

"It's terrible and very scary to be diagnosed with cancer, and it's very tragic to hear of her having an opioid addiction," McCain said. "Both things have hit my family very hard, and it's just horrific to go through as someone who's a bystander, let alone actually going through it yourself. So, you know, my heart goes out to her in that way, and I hope for a very speedy recovery."

Unsurprisingly, fans took to Twitter after Megan's comments to rip her and demand an apology. She's has not given one, nor does it appear that one is coming. 

breastfeed debate

Ice-T's wife catches heat for continuing to breastfeed 5-year-old daughter

Ice-T's wife is defending herself after being criticized for continuing to breastfeed their daughter, Chanel, who is now 5 years old.


Interestingly, Coco Austin dealt with similar flak last year for the same exact reason. 

"Chanel still likes my boob. She's 5 years old," Coco told Us Weekly on Aug. 2. "A lot of people are like, 'Oh, you're not getting the nutrition after 2 years old. Why do it?' And I'm like, My child's eating steak and hamburgers. She just likes a little snack every now and then and more of the bonding between the mother. Why take that away from her?"

The rapper-actor's wife insisted that she's not making her daughter breastfeed, and she'll stop when Chanel's wants to stop. For Chanel, it's all about comfort.

"She loves on it and it's not like she's getting milk from it," Coco said, "but she's getting her little snack and it's kind of soothing her to sleep."

Despite the judgement, Coco, 42, makes if clear that she's unfazed.

"I don't want to deprive her of something she wants," she said, "just because society says you need to stop after 2."

The criticism is nothing new for Coco. In March 2020, she faced pushback from many on social media after sharing a snap of Chanel breastfeeding. At the time, she was 4 years old.

"I've been getting a lot of props in the breastfeeding community and get tons of emails from woman/moms appreciating me bringing light to the subject," she wrote on Instagram last year. 

Many fans, however, weren't cosigning her message, saying that it was "not normal" for Ice-T's lookalike daughter to still be breastfeeding at her age. One year later, those people still feel the same way.

Sober city

Chrissy Teigen dishes on 'first sober Italian getaway' after quitting drinking

Chrissy Teigen is loving her liquor-less life.

Late last year, the Sports Illustrated model announced that she decided to quit drinking after her 35th birthday. She has continued to follow through on that pledge, and recently refrained from imbibing while in Italy (something she admits that was a new experience for her).

Over the weekend, Chrissy headed overseas to attend UNICEF's summer gala in Capri, Italy, with her husband, John Legend. On Instagram, she detailed the couple's intense path to Capri, noting all the airplane, car and boat rides they took.

"We haven't done something like this for soooo long, it made us feel young again!," she joked. 

After, Chrissy thanked the clothing designers who helped dress her for "making feel so pretty and helping me along in my quest to have my first sober Italian getaway."

"I hate the word sober by the way, it's so rehab/medical," she continued. "Anyhow honestly it was so so trippy being sober at something you typically would have been wasted at. That paired with all the crazy hot young models and club dudes and seeing your young self over and over, oh man it was crazy."

She added, "We had so much fun. I didn't do anything I'd regret and I'm glad I'll get to remember it all!!"

Chrissy's Instagram post comes as she slowly tries to return to normalcy following her cyberbullying scandal. In May, there were endless calls for Chrissy to be "canceled" after disturbing 10-year-old tweets resurfaced in which she cyberbullied reality TV star Courtney Stodden. Chrissy apologized, but her words mainly fell on deaf ears and some brands ended sponsorships with her.

In the immediate aftermath, Chrissy said she was in "a hole of deserved global punishment."

"I'm truly ashamed of [the tweets]. As I look at them and understand the hurt they caused, I have to stop and wonder: How could I have done that?," she wrote on Medium.

On July 14, she spoke of being a part of the "cancel club."

"Cancel club is a fascinating thing and I have learned a whollllle lot," she wrote on Instagram. "Only a few understand it and it's impossible to know til you're in it. And it's hard to talk about it in that sense because obviously you sound whiney when you've clearly done something wrong. It just sucks. There is no winning. But there never is here anyhow."

Looking for love

Rebel Wilson is 'on the hunt' for love

Rebel Wilson is ready to find her person… and chances are, her yet-to-be-determined boyfriend is English.

The actress spoke to The Sun recently about her love life and the London home she recently purchased.


"I love England. I've bought a place in London so I'm sure I'll be spending a lot more time there in future," she said. "I am someone who is established in my career so is definitely on the hunt for love – but it has to be the right person."

Rebel, 41, dated Jacob Busch for about a year, but the duo split in February.  

"I give it a go, I put myself out there. I've definitely been trying to open my heart and find someone amazing," she said. "I've definitely found some amazing people, it just hasn't been totally right. I'm still on the hunt."

The "Pitch Perfect" star said she prefers to meet someone organically, not digitally.

"Don't ever DM me, guys, if you're not someone I follow, because I won't read it," she said. "It's just like opening a gate to things that you don't know… There could be anything in those DMs."

The "Pitch Perfect" star said she's gotten everything from mean-spirited messages to pornographic material sent to her. That played into her decision to stop looking at messages.

"I tend to just not look at it because as a human being you get a bit sad if someone writes something mean about you," she said. "Randoms on the internet don't really know you so you shouldn't get offended about what they might say."

It should be noted that any future mate of Rebel's should probably be open to children. In a recent Instagram Live video, Rebel, who has shed 65 pounds this year, said she decided to get healthier in hopes of starting a family.

"It first started when I was looking into fertility stuff and the doctor was like, 'Well, you'd have a much better chance if you were healthier,'" she said, noting that she was offended at the initial comment. "I thought I was pretty healthy. That's, kind of, what started it, if I lost some excess weight, it would give me a better chance for freezing eggs and have the eggs be a better quality. At first, it wasn't even really [about] myself, it was more thinking of the future mini-me really."

Gifting guy

Ben Affleck gave Jennifer Lopez $45,000 birthday gift

Money can't buy love, but it can help impress.

Ben Affleck opened up his wallet in a big way last week for Jennifer Lopez's birthday. According to new report, the Oscar winner partnered with two luxury jewelry designers to make a custom piece for Jen that was both thoughtful and pricey. The cost? Just under $45,000.

Beth Bugdaycay, who helped design the piece with Murat Bugdaycay and Ben, told The Adventurine, "Ben wanted to get something really special for her birthday. He wanted to put together a meaningful story. He didn't just get her the biggest diamond he could find, he wanted to say something about their relationship."

Eventually, Ben decided on a hodgepodge of jewelry, that included chains, charms, pendants and a key.

J. Lo wore the birthday gift in a series of Instagram photos on her 52nd birthday. The last picture of the slideshow shows her kissing Ben, which is the first time either of them have shared an intimate photo from the rekindled romance.

"The way Ben put the necklace together is really meaningful," Beth said. 

Ben and Jen haven't exactly been shy about their relationship, as they've been seen kissing and globetrotting. The pair was most recently photographed in the Mediterranean.

The couple famously dated in the early aughts and got engaged in 2002. They later split in 2004 and called off their engagement. In April 2021, after Jen and Alex Rodriguez broke up, Jennifer and Ben rekindled their romance and even vacationed together in Montana, where he owns a home. The reconciliation reportedly occurred after Ben began writing love letters to Jen.

In early July, Jen indirectly addressed the relationship, telling Apple Music's Zane Lowe, "I'm super happy. I know people are always wondering, 'How are you? What's going on? Are you okay?' This is it. I've never been better." A few weeks later, she ducked a question about Ben when she was on "Today."

Picture perfect?

Britney Spears posts fourth topless picture in a week on Instagram

Britney Spears is again baring it all, but fans are beginning to wonder if something more sinister is at play. 

On July 23, the pop star shocked her 32.7 million Instagram followers when she posted a topless image with only her hands covering her breasts. Four days later, she posted a similar image. On July 29, a third topless image was shared. A similar photo also went up on Friday night, July 30. Britney captioned all the snapshots only with emojis.

While fans initially praised Britney for her daring posts, many have changed their tune and now fear that the snaps could haunt her concerning her conservatorship case

"Sooooo, no one thinks her account is getting trolled by someone else to manipulate her case…," one fan commented.

A slew of others mentioned being "concerned" about the posts and the singer. Others said this fourth post seemed "suspicious."

"I feel these are private and being posted without her consent," another person said after the July 30 image was shared.

Britney has been very active on Instagram this week. Just before her newest topless post, she posted a meme that appears to be a direct shot at those involved in her conservatorship case.

"If standing up for yourself burns a bridge, I have matches. We ride at dawn," the message said. 

The wording appears to refer to everyone involved in her case, but mainly her father and her family, of whom she's not minced words of late.

Around the same time all these posts went up, Britney had a little fun, sharing fan art of herself and Cher eating ice cream in St-Tropez in France, a reference to an exchange the women had on social media last week

"Maybe I'll just be nice and plant here and keep my dreams alive by thinking about visiting St. Tropez with @cher and eating ice cream… She was one of my favorite singers as a kid and I loved to dress up as her," Britney wrote on Instagram. The following day, the "Believe" icon saw the message and responded. "When #FreeBritney is FINALLY FREE, I'm Taking her to San Tropez & We'll Eat Ice Cream To Her Hearts Content."

On Saturday night, the couple had dinner at their favorite restaurant, O Ya in Boston, which was the site of their very first date. The couple shared several images on their Instagram Stories to document the occasion.

"If it weren't for this place, we wouldn't be together. No joke," Blake sincerely wrote. "No restaurant means more to us."

She also posted another smiling image with her husband, writing, "10 years later. We still go out on our 'first date.' But in much more comfortable shoes."

Ryan, to no surprise, took a little more humorous route, initially sharing a selfie with Blake, saying they were at their "favorite restaurant" with his wife's "4th favorite person." Two hours later, he posted a similar image, but this one less cropped.

"Posting this again because I cut out my wife's cute earrings. She trained me better than this," he hilariously wrote. "Sorry if I let anyone down."

Blake reposted the uncropped image after reposting the faux apology, commenting, "That's better."

Ryan and Blake met while filming 2011's "Green Lantern," which was a box office flop. Warner Bros. had initially planned to make "Green Lantern" a franchise, but plans were scrapped due to the negative reviews and the film's severe underperformance.

Hot look

Chrishell Stause rocks jaw-dropping pink bikini after debuting new romance

Chrishell Stause is pretty in pink. 

On Aug. 1, the "Selling Sunset" star stunned while posing in a hot pink bikini during a Greek vacation. In the Instagram image, the reality TV star stood next to oversized bottle of vodka. As she was surrounded by neutral colors, the cute pink swimsuit (and light pink nails) perfectly popped.

"'Trust me, you can dance!' -Vodka," she joked in her caption. 

While many fans chuckled at her joke, the majority of them awed at her gorgeous look and enviable body. 

Hannah Ann Sluss of "Bachelor" fame commented with four fire emojis. Other fans left heart emojis or swimsuit emojis or sweating emojis. Her 2.1 million followers threw out words such as "beautiful" and "gorgeous."


The sun-kissed look comes just days after Chrishell debuted her hot new romance with "Selling Sunset" co-star and boss Jason Oppenheim, the co-founder of The Oppenheim Group, the high-end real estate brokerage firm at the center of their hit Netflix reality show.

On July 28, Chrishell raised eyebrows when she took to Instagram to share a slideshow of photos from a vacation with several of her castmates. The slideshow included a shot of the former soap star kissing her boss on the head and a sweet shot of him nuzzling her neck. 

Jason's brother Brett seemed to confirm the romance in the comment's section, writing, "Love you Chrishell. Thank you for making my brother happy." His girlfriend, Tina Louise, wrote, "Awwwww!!!! Congratulations you guys!! Finally IG official."

In the wake of the Instagram images, Jason publicly confirmed that he and Chrishell are dating.

implants are out!

Clare Crawley gives update after removing breast implants

For Clare Crawley, less is more… at least when it comes to her chest. 

Over the weekend, the former "Bachelorette" star announced that she had successfully removed her breast implants, something she has planned to do for months. 

"Surgery is officially done + I am on the road to healing!," she wrote on Instagram while also thanking her doctors. "It wasn't an easy decision, but they truly are the most compassionate team who truly want to help women like me heal from BII (Breast Implant Illness). On top of that, having the overwhelming support and love from family and friends has just meant the world to me."

She added, "Having you all give me a boost when my brain has slipped into moments of doubt, truly lifted me up. And so I will continue to pass It on to anyone else who needs to hear this… our body shape does not define us or make us any less lovable or worthy. We are perfectly made just the way we are!"

On her Instagram Story, the reality TV star said she felt "amazing" and had not taken any pain medication.


The surgery wasn't a surprise, as Clare had previously said she was getting her implants removed due to health issues she's been experiencing. 

"My body is fighting [my implants]," she said in July. "My body can't heal. My body is in fight mode constantly."

Just a few days before the surgery, she opened up about her flawed decision to get implants in the first place — and also why she's so proud to remove them now.

"As a child of sexual abuse, my young adult years were spent in unhealthy relationships feeling unworthy of the good ones. It was a vicious cycle, because the more I chose the wrong men who treated me poorly, the more I believed I wasn't good enough," she said. "Enter the breast implants. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't excited to get them, but the truth is it was money that would have been better spent on therapy to heal my wounded heart. I ended up spending the money on therapy anyway."

Now though, she's "a woman who has learned to love herself deeply on the inside, knows her worth, and will fight for herself no matter what."

"I've learned the toxicity that these implants can cause on our bodies, as it has done to mine. So I am stepping away from something that no longer serves me… not my heart, and certainly not my health," she continued. "We are taking it back to Clare 1.0, who is lovable and worthy just the way she is."
