The tumultuousness of Dr. Dre’s and his estranged wife, Nicole Young’s divorce, remains on full display. In the latest episode, Nicole Young is accusing Dr. Dre of hiding assets and domestic abuse. Nicole alleges, in new court documents, that Dre has created a new holding company for what she claims is “community property,” namely, the trademarks for “Dr. Dre” and “The Chronic.” However, sources close to Dre have noted that “They were married in 1996. Chronic came out in ’92 and Dr. Dre used his name since the 80’s, so it’s all his and his alone.”
Nicole says the decision to move the trademarks and other assets highlight an “epic failure and reveals the true nature of his character, or lack thereof.” She asserts that Dre got the trademark in 1997 when the two were already married.
What’s more, Nicole is also alleging that she was victim of domestic violence throughout the course of her marriage to Dre. However, she does not outline any specific details about the abuse she allegedly endured. Sources close to Dre told TMZ, “In their 26 years together, there has never been any hint or claim of threatened or actual physical violence and the insinuation is an insult to actual victims of domestic abuse.”
