Nicole Young has filed for divorce from Dr. Dre after 24 years of marriage. It is revealed that a prenup was signed by both parties prior to the wedding as Dr. Dre is estimated to have a net worth of $1 billion.
Nicole Young filed the petition for divorce on July 27th and it was assumed there was no prenup. On July 30th, Dr. Dre did respond to the petition. According to TMZ,
Dre is fine paying Nicole spousal support but any distribution of property should be governed by their prenuptial agreement.
Nicole says she felt forced to sign the prenup agreement at the time since the wedding was coming up soon.
I was extremely reluctant, resistant and afraid to sign the agreement and felt backed into a corner. Given the extraordinary pressure and intimidation by Andre, I was left with no option but to hire a lawyer (of course, with the help of Andre’s team of professionals) and unwillingly signed the agreement very shortly before our marriage.
She revealed that after 2 years of married that Dre decided that the prenup was not needed.
Andre acknowledged to me that he felt ashamed he had pressured me into signing a premarital agreement and he tore up multiple copies of the agreement in front of me. Since the day he tore up the agreements, we both understood that there was no premarital agreement, and that it was null and void.
