Dr. Dre is now being ordered to pay his estranged wife, Nicole Young, $1.55 million in attorney fees, per Page Six. 1 million will be allocated towards her lawyer and the other $550,000 towards other fees associated with the case.
The outlet states, “Young and her lawyers had previously said fees in the case were close to $4 million. The court papers reflect that Young’s legal tab can cost up to $1,100 per hour.”
Young is being represented by Samantha Spector, who is known to represent high-profile celebrity cases.
Previously the N.W.A rapper was ordered to pay Young $293,306 per month in spousal support beginning on Aug. 1, according to court documents obtained by Page Six.
A source spoke to the outlet and said, “the spousal support figure is consistent with what he’s been paying already and is a fraction of the $2 million per month that Young asked the court for in September 2020.”
The couple was married for 24 years and have two adult children, 24-year-old son Truice and 20-year-old daughter Truly.
