Dr. Dre has reportedly been ordered to pay nearly $300,000 a month in spousal support to his estranged wife, Nicole Young, amid their divorce.

The 56-year-old rapper must pay Young $293,306 a month in spousal support starting August 1, according to court documents obtained by Page Six in a piece published Thursday.(RELATED: REPORT: Dr. Dre To Pay His Estranged Wife Spousal Support Amid Recovery From Brain Aneurysm)

A source shared that the spousal support is much less than what Nicole had originally asked for in court in September last year, which was $2 million a month. 

Dr. Dre filed for divorce from Nicole in June 2020 after 24 years of marriage. He reportedly started giving Young support two months after he filed.

The outlet noted the couple had a prenuptial agreement in place and the music legend’s net worth is estimated at around $800 million.

In April, the couple asked a California judge to sign off on legally ending their marriage while details of their divorce get worked out. The two also share two children together.
