Dr. Dre ‘agrees to pay $2 million in temporary spousal support to estranged wife Nicole Young… and signed the deal from his hospital bed’
Dr. Dre has agreed to pay $2 million in temporary spousal support to his estranged wife Nicole Young amid their ongoing divorce battle.
The rapper, 55, who is currently recovering in the hospital after suffering an aneurysm earlier this week, signed the deal from his bed at Cedars Sinai Hospital, according to TMZ.
Young was initially seeking $2 million monthly on top of $5 million in legal fees, but Dre will not be paying the legal fees she originally asked for.

The amount Dre agreed to pay his ex is a one-time fee, however that might change depending on their upcoming court hearing in April 2021.
On top of the millions Dre has agreed to pay, he will also continue to pay for the Malibu and Pacific Palisades homes where Young and her mother live for the next few months.
Currently, Dre has been paying Young $293,306 a month in temporary support.
Young filed for divorce from The Next Episode artist earlier this summer after 24 years of marriage, and they share two children – son Truice Young, 24, and daughter Truly Young, 20.

The new development comes amid a turbulent time for Dre.
Dre was admitted to the ICU this past week after suffering from a brain aneurysm, and earlier this week updated fans on his health and revealed he would be leaving the hospital soon.
‘Thanks to my family, friends and fans for their interest and well wishes. I’m doing great and getting excellent care from my medical team. I will be out of the hospital and back home soon. Shout out to all the great medical professionals at Cedars. One Love!!’, he posted on Instagram.

However the rapper was dealt another blow when it emerged four burglars had attempted to break into his $40 million mansion as he recovered in the hospital.
The intruders targeted his Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles, home on Wednesday at around 2am when they saw news reports that he was getting life-saving treatment.
The home’s security team spotted the men ‘casing’ the house and confronted them, according to TMZ, causing the men to flee.
The security guards called police before they could get on the premises. Cops arrived, chased the men down and took them into custody.
