Dre and Nicole Young got married in 1996. It was Dre's first marriage and Young was previously married to NBA player Sedale Threatt. The pair share two children together, daughter Truly Young, 19, and son Truice Young, 23.
The rapper will also pay for Nicole’s health insurance and other fees, including “the expenses for the Malibu, and Pacific Palisades homes.”
According to reports, this order could be temporary as Dre and Young continue continue financial negotiations. The couple was married married for two and a half decades.
Young, in June, filed for divorce after 24 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for her split from the hip-hop mogul.
