I have been paying attention to the divorce drama between Dr. Dre and his wife, Nicole Young. When I first heard that his wife filed for divorce I said this is going to get ugly. The reason why I said this is most women do not divorce their billionaire husbands unless something bad is going on in their marriage. Mrs. Young has accused Dr. Dre of mental and physical abuse among other things.

Nicole Young, has filed a lawsuit against Dr. Dre that claims she co-owns both the trademark on the “Dr. Dre” name and on his album The Chronic. Dre and Young were married for over two decades, but as the suit puts it, he “forced [her] out of their family home on or about April 2, 2020.” At that point—again, according to the suit—Dre moved to secretly create an “asset holding company” to control his “valuable trademarks” that only he would control, despite the fact that Dre and Young are “presumed” to control these trademarks “jointly” due to how the law works in California.

This is all part of what sounds like it will be an unsurprisingly pricey and contentious divorce. This comes on the back heels of Mrs. Young requesting that Dr. Dre pay her $2 million per month and refused to give him some items that he left behind at the Malibu house where she’s staying because—as someone who is worth $1 billion—Dre can just buy new things.
