Dr. Dre and his ex-wife Nicole Young went through an ugly courtroom drama over their divorce. Dre’s over $1 billion fortune has been a source of contention between the two for months. Dr. Dre abandoned his case against his ex-wife Nicole Young after accusing her of embezzling $350,000 from his Record One studio, but it wasn’t because he was feeling benevolent.
Nicole Young had until the end of the day on December 31st to gather her belongings and leave his mega-mansion. While they battled it out in divorce court, she was residing in the Malibu Mansion. Nicole agreed to evacuate the 6-bedroom, 7-bathroom, 8,843 sq. ft. Malibu home by December 31, according to court documents acquired by Radar.
According to the agreement, Dre’s ex will only take her personal belongings from the $21 million residence. The house has “soaring ceilings,” “panoramic ocean views,” and three levels of living space, according to the description. The master suite takes up the entire third level and has a professional gym, bath, and a large Jacuzzi tub.
Nicole, who negotiated a $100 million divorce settlement with Dre, also negotiated over some of the pad’s valuables. She will be able to take home a coffee table, Buddha figurines, and Italian cuisine. Dre is walking away with his whole real estate portfolio, which includes the mansion in question, a $100 million Brentwood estate, as well as many other homes in Los Angeles.
Nicole agreed to hand over all keys, garage openers, and security codes to Dre on January 1. She will also be responsible for any damage she or her visitors create during their stay, according to the agreement. Nicole agrees that the wall of the recording studio needs to be repaired as a result of a broken water line, but she will not be paying for it.
With the $50 million Dre is going to pay into Nicole’s bank account, she shouldn’t have any trouble obtaining her own place. The mogul will pay half of the $100 million now and another $50 million next year as part of the settlement.
She will keep a grey Spyder motorcycle, a 2016 Ferrari, a 2020 Tesla, a 2015 Cadillac Escalade, a 2019 Porsche, and a 2018 Range Rover, according to the paperwork. The settlement allowed the former marriage to avoid a costly public trial that would have included claims of infidelity and embezzlement.
