Dr. Dre is still in the ICU after suffering a brain aneurysm, but his divorce proceedings are still ongoing.
According to a recent filing by estranged wife Nicole Young, Dr. Dre allegedly put a gun to her head along with other forms abuse during their marriage.
The filing came just “days before” Dr. Dre was rushed to the hospital.
‘Andre held a gun to my head on two occasions, on January 8, 2000 and November 20 2001,’ she claimed. ‘Andre has punched me in the head/face on two occasions, in 1999 and on January 8, 2000.
‘Andre kicked down the door to a bedroom in which I was hiding from his rage in 2016,’ she added. ‘Andre has verbally and emotionally decimated my personhood to the extent that I currently suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome.’
Nicole also responded to a declaration Dr. Dre previously made to the court that she had never called the police, explaining that she had been overwhelmed with fear.
‘Andre conspicuously omits the fact that the police were called in approximately September 1995, shortly before our marriage, after he slammed me up against a wall and lifted me off the floor by my neck.
‘During our marriage, I considered calling the police several times but, as I fell deeper into the abusive relationship, my fear of Andre outweighed any confidence I had that the police could help me.’
We can’t say we’re surprised by any of this.
