According to court documents, a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge ordered Dre to pay $293,306 per month to Nicole (which totals up to a little over $3M a year). The decision is only temporary until a final decision is made.
The court documents read, “[Dre] is ordered to pay to the [Nicole] spousal support in the sum of $293,306.00 per month, payable on the first of each month, commencing August 1, 2021,” Dre will pay a total of $3,519,672 per year until Nicole remarries or “enters into a new domestic partnership.”
The judge also ordered Dre to keep paying for Nicole’s health insurance.
Nicole filed for divorce from Dre in June 2020. The two had been married for 24 years and share two adult children.
In the petition, Nicole said they did sign a prenup before they got married. However, she claimed Dre tore it up a couple of years into their marriage.
Dre scoffed at the suggestion and is demanding the agreement be enforced as part of their divorce. During their marriage, Dre amassed nearly $1 billion through his music and Beats headphones.
In court documents, Nicole claimed Dre had $262 million in cash and Apple stock. She said they spent $2.3 million a month on their living expenses.
Since the divorce was filed, Dre and Nicole have played dirty in court. She even filed subpoenas demanding his three alleged mistresses show up to court. Her lawyers served Jillian Speer, Crystal Sierra aka Crystal Rodgers, and Kili Anderson.
The women banded together and hired a lawyer to fight the request. They accused Nicole of trying to learn information she could kind out through other venues. The judge presiding over the judge wasn't persuaded by their argument and sided with Nicole.
The judge ordered the three alleged mistresses to sit and be grilled about Dre. At one point, Dre even accused his ex of stealing money from one of his music companies.
Recently, the couple asked the court to declare them officially single. The judge granted the request. The decision seems to be the only thing the two can agree on. The divorce is still pending.
