American music mogul, Dr Dre has been ordered by a court to pay $1.5M to his estranged wife, Nicole Young, as their messy divorce case rages on.
In the order, the judge in the divorce case ruled this week that the veteran rap artiste pay Young another $1.55 million in legal fees and costs — after already coughing out over $2 million to his estranged wife.
The judge estimated that Nicole’s reasonable legal fees in the case so far should total $3 million, plus costs. Dre will now have to pay $1 million towards the balance of her fees, plus another $550,000 in costs associated with the case, the judge ruled, PageSix.com reports.
The payment would be for fees and costs through July 2, 2021. But it is unclear what the eventual tab will be moving forward in the case.
Young and her lawyers had previously said fees in the case were close to $4 million. The court papers reflect that Young’s legal tab can cost up to $1,100 per hour. She is being represented in the case by hotshot celebrity attorney, Samantha Spector.
The judge further ruled, as had been previously ordered, that Dre should pay Nicole $293,306 in monthly temporary spousal support — and that Dre must also pay for household costs including security, insurance, gardening, taxes, repairs and maintenance, retroactive to September 1, 2020.
That comes to $3,812,987 over the past year, the judge estimated in the ruling, adding that the previously paid living expenses that Dre had turned over already may not have included all the costs for the home. The ruling also said that the parties must confer on any added expenses Dre owes Young on the household costs by next month.

Tupac Shakur’s Murder 25 Years On
The iconic hip hop artist was riding shotgun in a car driven by Death Row Records head Marian “Suge” Knight on September 7, 1996 when a white Cadillac pulled up alongside them on Flamingo Road and opened fire.
At least 12 shots were fired, four of which struck Tupac and one of which grazed the head of Suge Knight.
Tupac died six days later from the fatal blows. He was 25 years old.
Despite it taking place on a busy street, a block away from the Las Vegas Strip, no one has ever been arrested for Tupac’s murder, Yahoo News reports.
Tupac’s demise has prompted many conspiracy theories, with many pointing the finger at the Southside Crips, a gang from Compton, California. Tupac was involved with the Mob Piru Bloods, who are a known rival of the Crips.
It’s said Tupac “signed his death warrant” when he and his Bloods bodyguards beat one of Crips members, Orlando “Baby Lane” Anderson, in the lobby of the Bruce Seldon vs. Mike Tyson fight venue earlier that night.
“When he ran across the lobby of that casino and slugged another gang member, he signed his own death warrant,” said former Los Angeles Police Department detective Greg Kading, who led a task force to investigate the murder of Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G. aka Biggie Smalls.
Kady confirmed it was Anderson who later pulled the trigger in the drive-by-shooting that ultimately “cost him his life.”
Others, like Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chuck Philips, posited that it was Tupac’s friend-turned-rival Biggie Smalls (real name Christopher Wallace) who ordered the hit on the rapper and gave his attackers the gun.
It’s well known that Wallace had previously offered to pay the Crips $1m for the hit.
The public feud between the two rappers previously inspired the pair’s infamous beef tracks – Biggie’s Who Shot Ya? and Tupac’s savage response Hit ‘Em Up.
To this day, Hit ‘Em Up is considered the greatest ‘diss track’ of all time, with violent threats made toward Biggie and fellow East Coast rappers.
It’s said the song’s release only exacerbated the East Coast-West Coast hip hop rivalry of the ‘90s and played a role in Tupac’s death – as he was shot three months after its release.
Tupac’s death set off a series of events, which saw Biggie gunned down in a hit ordered by the West Coast rapper’s friend Suge Knight. It was a gun-for-hire Wardell “Poochie” Fouse who pulled the trigger.
Both Anderson and Poochie were killed before they could be charged. Anderson was shot and killed collecting a drug debt in 1998, while Poochie was gunned down riding his motorcycle in 2003.
As a result, the Tupac and Biggie cases remain “technically” unsolved.
