In court documents, Nicole admitted signing a prenuptial agreement before her wedding. However, she claims Dre tore up the deal a couple of years into the marriage. Nicole claims Dre promised to give her half of his estate.
In his response, Dre laughed off Nicole’s claim he tore up the prenup. He asked the court to enforce the terms of their deal.
