Dr. Dre officially declared ‘legally single’ in acrimonious split from Nicole Young … as the mogul prepares to battle his ex-wife over ‘ironclad prenup’










Dr. Dre, 56, is one step closer to closing the chapter on his marriage to ex-wife Nicole Young.

The judge in Dre’s divorce officially declared him legally single months after the mogul said in court documents that the marriage had gotten to the ‘point of no return’, according to TMZ on Thursday.

Now, the estranged couple will have to battle it out over a reportedly ‘iron clad prenup’ and the rights to his trademark and billion dollar empire.

Back in March, the rapper’s attorney Laura Wasser filed court documents ‘requesting a bifurcation of Dre’s divorce,’ which would declare himself and ex Nicole Young both ‘single.’ 

According to TMZ, that request was granted and  Dre (Andre Romelle Young) is ‘officially divorced’ in the eyes of the law.

However, things aren’t done with the couple’s messy split and it will be a long road for the hip hop icon before things are fully wrapped up.  

As DailyMail.com previously reported, Dre and Nicole are disputing their prenuptial agreement – signed shortly before their 1996 wedding – she wants it invalidated while he claims it is ironclad.

When Dre requested the court to declare him single, he noted in court documents that ‘false allegations of domestic violence’ from Nicole have left their relationship beyond repair.

He also alleged that he had ‘been trying to settle the divorce with Nicole since she filed in June 2020,’ but claimed she is purposely ‘dragging her feet.’

Ever since Nicole filed for divorce in June last year, their split has become more and more contentious.

In October, Dre accused his wife of criminal conduct in ’embezzling’ more than $350,000 from one of their bank accounts.

Nicole sued the NWA rapper separately in an attempt to lay claim to his estimated billion dollar empire but in April the judge in that case reassigned the suit to family court where was combined with their divorce case.

In that lawsuit, Nicole accused her husband of transferring trademark rights to his ‘Dr. Dre’ name and his triple-platinum album, The Chronic, to a company solely owned by him.

Nicole had claimed in court papers that she owned half the trademarks and their revenue and the transfer of property occurred without her ‘knowledge or consent.’

But Dre fought back insisting she has no such claim – since he’s been using the Dr. Dre name since the 1980s and his debut album was released in 1992, four years before he married her.  

Earlier this year DailyMail.com revealed that Nicole filed court documents accusing Dre of violent and emotional abuse during their 24-year marriage.

The music tycoon held a gun to her head, punched her in the face and slammed her against a wall, lifting her off her feet by her neck, she declared.

 Shortly after her scathing declaration to the court, Nicole’s lawyers huddled with Dr. Dre’s lawyers and the end result was that Dre – reportedly still in his hospital bed after suffering a brain aneurysm – signed an agreement to pay Nicole a lump sum of $2million in temporary support.

He said, she said: As DailyMail.com previously reported, Dre and Nicole are disputing their prenuptial agreement - signed shortly before their 1996 wedding - she wants it invalidated while he claims it is ironclad
