The estranged wife of Dr. Dre, Nicole Young has accused the multiple award-winning rapper and music mogul of holding a gun to her head on at least two separate occasions in the past, punching her in the face, slamming her against a wall, and lifting her off her feet by her neck in 2000 and 2001.
According to Nicole Young per a report by Daily Mail UK, court documents show that Nicole Young has made some very serious allegations against Dr Dre for engaging in physical abuse metered at her.
In the court documents, the 51-year-old mother asserted that Dr. Dre held a gun to her head in 2000 and again in 2001, she also indicated that he punched her in the face twice on two separate occasions.
Additionally, she described one instance in which Dre allegedly kicked down the door to a room in which she was hiding from his rage in 2016.
“I have explained in excruciating and painful detail the abuse that Andre has perpetrated against me over our more than 25 year-relationship,” she said.
“Andre held a gun to my head on two occasions, on January 8, 2000 and November 20 2001,’ she claimed. ‘Andre has punched me in the head/face on two occasions, in 1999 and on January 8, 2000.
“Andre kicked down the door to a bedroom in which I was hiding from his rage in 2016,’ she added.
Stressing on her accusations of been abused by Dr. Dre in their over two and half decades of marriage, Young also accused him of verbal and emotional abuse, which she said “decimated my personhood to the extent that I currently suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome.”
“His long-term abuse must be a factor that the court takes into account in warding support and fees,” she added.
Interestingly, she disclosed that in the phase of all the abuse, never did she report his violent behaviour to the police but cited that Dr. Dre forgot the police were called in “approximately September 1995, shortly before our marriage, after he slammed me up against a wall and lifted me off the floor by my neck.”
Nicole affirmed that Dre was right when he also claimed in his declaration that the police were never called to their home during their marriage but then argued that it was so because she was afraid of Dre.
“During our marriage, I considered calling the police several times but, as I fell deeper into the abusive relationship, my fear of Andre outweighed any confidence I had that the police could help me.”
Previously Dre stated that he had not abused or threatened Young’s physical safety, but she has since said he is lying.
Despite been in the sick bed after it was reported that he was suffering a brain aneurysm, Dre this week signed an agreement that pays Nicole a sum of $2 million in temporary support till their next court hearing in April.
Since their split in June, Dre had been paying Nicole $293,000 a month in support. But she is asking the court to force him to pay her almost $2 million a month, plus another $5 million for attorney fees, claims Wasser calls ‘exorbitant and outrageous.’
Nicole – who claimed in legal documents that Dre has more than $260 million on hand in cash and Apple stocks – contends that she has a right to continue the lavish lifestyle she had as Mrs. Andre Young – which she said cost around $2.3 million per month.
