Dr. Dre says he cut off all communication with his ex-wife Nicole Young after she “falsely” accused him of abusing her during their marriage.
According to a declaration filed by Dre in court, obtained by Radar, the mogul lays out the betrayal he felt by his ex-wife’s actions after she filed for divorce.
Dre, who is fighting Nicole’s request for $4 million+ to pay her lawyers in the case, reveals he hasn’t spoken to his ex in over a year.
The two were married in 1996 but split in March 2020. Nicole moved out of the home they shared and into a Malibu property owned by Dre.
After Nicole filed for divorce, Dre says he told her he wanted to keep the divorce “classy and fair” and that he “did not want to turn it into an expensive fight.”
His last text to Nicole was in early August 2020 and ended with him saying, “Let’s keep it friendly and peaceful. Over and Out. I love you.”
Days later, he says she filed docs falsely accusing him of abuse during their marriage. “This is a complete lie. Nicole is now also trying to get out of our Premarital Agreement by claiming that I supposedly forced her to sign the Premarital Agreement. This too is false.”
Dre says he has not been in contact with Nicole since August 2020, except in early January 2020 when she came to visit him in the hospital when he was in the ICU at Cedars Sinai Hospital, after suffering a brain aneurysm.”
He says she hugged and kissed him. Dre said she told him she loved him before leaving. A couple of months later, Dre said Nicole filed for a domestic violence restraining order that ended up being denied by the court.
“There were never any domestic violence claims made by Nicole before or during our marriage, formal or informal. At no time were the police ever called during our marriage," he wrote.
"I was present for Nicole’s deposition. She testified that there are no witnesses to the alleged abuse and she admitted that she never told anyone, including her mother or siblings or other family or friends about any alleged abuse. There are no texts, no emails, no photographs, no videos, no police reports, no domestic violence filings, or other documents evidencing abuse and no witnesses to her offensive allegations,” Dre added.
Dre says, “After learning last August of Nicole’s false accusations of abuse, I realized then that I did not know the woman I had married and loved.”
The mogul says this is why he has “not seen Nicole or communicated with her or spoken to her since August 2020 (except when she choose on her own to visit me when I was hospitalized).”
Dre says Nicole’s false allegations of abuse and claims he forced her to sign the Premarital Agreement “are appalling” and “in my view nothing but an effort to attempt to obtain more money than that to which she is entitled and to what she agreed in our Premarital Agreement.”
Nicole has yet to respond to Dre’s latest attack in court.
