Nicole Young, the estranged wife of American hip hop veteran Dr. Dre, is demanding an eye watering $2 million in spousal support in their divorce case. The rapper’s estranged wife is demanding the amount on a monthly basis. Breaking the expenses down, she stated that the $2 million will be spent as follows; $900.000 for her entertainment, $135.000 for clothes, $10.000 for housekeeping, $60.000 for tuition, $125.000 for her donations, $100.00 for mortgage and $20.000 for telephone and email bills. It is said that her current monthly expenses are actually $2.5 million. This somehow makes the $2 million she is seeking look ‘cheap’.
She also wants Dr. Dre to pay her lawyer fees which she says are in the region of $5 million within the two month period since she filed for divorce. Dr. Dre, born Andre Young, is believed to have signed a prenup agreement with Nicole Young when they married but he later destroyed it, stating that he trusted her. However, Nicole Young now believes that she deserves half of his $800 million wealth because there is no prenup.
Nicole Young is just one of several women to get rich by simply divorcing their wealthy husbands. A recent example is McKenzie Bezos, who became a billionaire simply by divorcing amazon boss, Jeff Bezos, after she was awarded $36 billion worth of amazon shares by the court. She is now the wealthiest woman in the world.
