Dr. Dre’s ex-wife filed a domestic violence restraining order against the legendary rapper, asking for him to stay away from her and her home after receiving multiple death threats.
According to new legal documents, filed in the ex-couple’s ongoing divorce, Nicole Young is asking the court to order Dr. Dre to stay 100 yards away from her home in Malibu.
In the documents, Young is also asking for Dr. Dre to stay away from her, including in person, via email, or text messages.
We’re told Dre’s ex-wife rushed to court this morning, filing the emergency restraining order.
In the documents, filed by famous divorce lawyer, Samantha Spector, Dre’s ex-wife explains she has been receiving death threats from his massive fan base and believes she will continue to get them.
As we reported, in prior documents, Nicole claims she has received threatening text messages from the ‘Beats’ founder and is asking he be ordered not to contact her anymore. Since the split, Young has been living in the couple’s Malibu beach home, and she is asking a judge to order Dr. Dre to stay away from the property.
We’re told the judge is now asking for more evidence to issue the restraining order and wants to hear testimony from both parties. A hearing is scheduled in three weeks.
In today’s hearing, Dr. Dre’s lawyer argued that the legendary rapper hasn’t seen his ex-wife in a very long time and said there is no need for a restraining order.
In an opposition, filed by Dr. Dre, he claims Nicole is citing “old” allegations to try and get a restraining order.
As we reported, she accused the rapper of abusing her during their marriage, claiming, “Andre has verbally and emotionally decimated my personhood to the extent that I currently suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome.”
Specifically, she alleged he “held a gun to my head” twice in 2000 and 2001, that he “punched me in the head/face” in 1999 and 2000 and that he “kicked down a door.” In her filing, she claims she had to hide “from his rage.”
As we reported, this isn’t the first time Nicole has filed documents outlining alleged abuse. In legal documents, she claimed, “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,” she said.
Interestingly, in Dr. Dre’s opposition filed by Laura Wasser, the rapper says his estranged wife even visited him at the hospital after suffering a brain aneurism. Plus, it was the only time they have seen each other since filing for divorce.
In other words, there is no need for a restraining order.
Young is seeking $2 million per month in temporary spousal support.
