Nicole Young claims Dr. Dre tore prenup to shreds shortly after marriage.
Dr Dre’s wife Nicole Young already had her mind fixated on a big settlement when she filed for divorce from the music mogul late last month, but in an unfortunate turn of events, it turned out Dre had her sign a prenup back in 1996, which sort of puts her settlement in jeopardy.
As a response Nicole has filed legal documents claiming she was pressured into signing the prenup back in 1996.
“I was extremely reluctant, resistant and afraid to sign the agreement and felt backed into a corner,” Nicole says per The Blast. “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.”
Nicole wants a judge to render the prenup null and void because Dr. Dre, real name Andre Young reportedly ripped the original documents into pieces two years into their marriage because “he felt ashamed.”
“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,” she continued. “Since the day he tore up the agreements, we both understood that there was no premarital agreement, and that it was null and void.”
The filing says Dre “destroyed the agreements as a grand gesture of his love for Nicole and his desire to have a marriage free of any financial restrictions governing their respective rights and responsibilities.”
Sources close to Dre have come out to rebuff Nicole’s claims, saying Dre never expressed shame over the prenup neither did he tear it up or say it was invalid.
Dre has made it known he will pay spousal support and cover all her expenses, but Nicole feels she deserves more because she continued the next two decade of her life believing there was no prenup, while the couple stayed together for 24 years.
Dr. Dre’s wife filed for divorce on June 29, citing irreconcilable differences. She is asking for spousal support and an even split of the community property.
