In a new legal filing, Dr. Dre's estranged wife, Nicole Young, has detailed why she allegedly needs nearly $2 million a month in temporary spousal support.
In the legal paperwork obtained by TMZ, Nicole is asking for $1,936,399 to cover her expenses, indicating she needs $100,000 a month for her mortgage and $900,000 a month in entertainment. She lays out the cost of more monthly necessities, as well, claiming she needs $135,000 a month for clothes and $20,000 a month for her cell phone, email and telephone.
Nicole, who's currently staying at the duo's house in Malibu, claims Dre cut off her access to her American Express Black card, for which he supposedly foots the bill.
In late June, Nicole filed to divorce the hip hop mogul, to whom she was married for 24 years. It was later revealed that the duo has a prenuptial agreement in place — but that has become a point of contention.
Nicole previously claimed she "unwillingly" signed the documents amid pressure from the rapper and his team. She also claimed Dre, who's valued at around $1 billion, ripped up the agreement a few years into their marriage — which he's denied.
In her new documents, Nicole alleges that Dre has a "history of violence and coercive control, both before and during the marriage."
According to TMZ, she does not elaborate on those claims, though she shared one text message that Dre allegedly sent her after they separated.
"Why are you ignoring me? Why are you ignoring me … should I come see you?" he allegedly texted her.
Nicole claims she found the message "frightening."
