Dr. Dre has been ordered to temporarily pay his ex-wife, Nicole Young, nearly $300,000 a month in spousal support starting in August, court documents obtained by Billboard show. That amounts to more than $3.5 million a year.
The court order, which The Blast was first to report, states that Dre will have to pay "until the party receiving support remarries or enters into a new domestic partnership, death of either party." He will also be responsible for maintaining her health insurance, as well as the expenses of their Malibu and Pacific Palisades homes.
"The support order is consistent with what Dre has been paying since their initial separation," a source familiar with the situation tells Billboard about the $293,306 a month the rap icon was ordered to pay. "It's a fraction of what Nicole and her legal team demanded."
