Things are heating up in the divorce between music mogul Dr. Dre and his estranged wife, Nicole Young.
Earlier this month, Young demanded almost $2 million a month for temporary spousal support. She has now filed a new lawsuit claiming that she co-owns the registered trademark for his name.
In the serious allegations, Young detailed that the music producer registered a new holding company after Young was “forced to leave their family home.” He then transferred the “highly valuable trademarks” into his own name, claiming that he was the sole owner of the company.
“Andre’s plan all along was to deny Nicole’s ownership rights. (Nicole has) demanded return of the trademarks (but Andre has) failed and refused to do so. It is inequitable and unjust for Andre to retain ownership of the trademarks, and the value they hold, without paying Nicole or allowing her to maintain her equal ownership,” Young’s court document states.
After two-and-a-half decades of marriage, Dr. Dre and Young filed for divorce in July this year. The couple have a prenup agreement, which may mean that she won’t be entitled to receive half of her husband’s $800 million fortune.
In addition to the monthly amount of $1,936,399 for support, she also wants the rapper to cover her legal fees, which according to her lawyers, are about $5 million.
