The estranged wife of Dr Dre, Nicole Young is under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department for alleged embezzlement.

Per the report available to the LAPD, Dr Dre is short by a $385,029 withdrawal which Larry Chatman believes Nicole Young is behind that act. As at now detectives at the LAPD are looking into the allegations to ascertain the truth in the allegation.
However, Dr Dre did not file the report, although the allegation was once brought up by the music mogul and Larry Chatman in the past during their divorce hearing. The 55-year-old record producer asserted that Nicole made two withdrawals from the account without any authorization- a claim Nicole refutes saying she had the right to the withdraw the money because her name was is on the said account.
Reacting to the investigation, the 50-year-old mother per assertions made by her legal counsel believes the investigation into the withdrawal is a PR stunt and a smear tactic as she lays focus on her divorce from Dr Dre.
In light of this, given Nicole Young is found guilty of the allegations of the charges levelled against her, she could face time for embezzlement.
