The divorce proceedings between Dr. Dre and his estranged wife became even more bitter when he was reportedly served papers at a family funeral this week.
Nicole Young, who filed for divorce from the rap mogul in 2020 after 14 years of marriage, had legal papers delivered to the six-time Grammy winner Monday while he was attending his grandmother’s funeral in Los Angeles, according to TMZ.
There are conflicting reports about the incident.
Some sources say the process server attempted to give documents to Dre as he was paying his last respects to his grandma at the Inglewood Park Cemetery. The legendary rapper/producer was reportedly standing next to the casket and got into a dispute with the server. Another source claims that the papers were actually served in the cemetery parking lot.
The documents ordered Dre to pay over $1.2 million for his estranged wife’s attorney fees after he allegedly only paid a portion of her legal costs.
Nicole has claimed in court documents that she endured so much abuse from Dre that now she suffers from post-traumatic stress syndrome. He denies those claims.
In July, a judge ordered the Beats by Dre co-founder to pay Young nearly $300,000 in spousal support monthly. His net worth is estimated at $800 million. The estranged pair share a son Truice, 24, and a daughter, Truly, 20.
