Dr. Dre's bitter divorce battle with ex-wife Nicole Young has taken yet another ugly turn.
On Monday, the award winning producer was served divorced papers while laying his beloved grandmother at a Los Angeles cemetery. Stories are conflicted on where exactly the exchange took place, however, sources say that a process server came up to Dre at the burial site as he was standing by his grandmother's casket and tried serving him. While another source claimed Dre was served in the cemetery's parking lot after the burial.
The hip hop mogul was reportedly furious and refused to take the court documents, which consisted of information on money that Dre had to pay Nicole's attorneys. But Dre says he's all paid up, after forking out $325,433 out of the $1,550,000 ordered by the courts. However, Nicole's team insists that Dre owes a balance of owes a balance of $1,224,567.
Nicole Young filed for divorce from Dre back in 2020, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the two parting ways. The Beats Headphones creator was reportedly ordered to pay his estranged wife nearly $300,000 a month in spousal support after Young initially asked for a whopping $1.9 million a month as well as having her $5 million lawyer fees paid for by Dre.
The Compton star responded to Young's demands back in September 2020, telling reporters:
"This all seems like the wrath of an angry person being exacerbated by opportunistic lawyers."
Before filing for divorce in July of last year, the couple had been married for 24 years and share two children together.
