We know Dr. Dre’s pockets are significantly lighter these days than they were before agreeing to pay his ex-wife $100 million dollars to have her lawyer lose his lawyer’s number. But that doesn’t mean Dre doesn’t have enough pennies left in his war chest to sic his team on Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene for using the beat from Still D.R.E. in a laughably earnest self-promotional video she posted, presumably to highlight her tiresome efforts to secure enough votes to elect Rep. Kevin McCarthy as Speaker of the House. According to TMZ, “in the video, you see her walking around and feeling herself — even taking a call from “DT” at one point.” Unfortunately for her, but fortunately for us, she wasn’t “feeling herself” in a sexy way, so Dre wasn’t impressed, telling TMZ he doesn’t “license [his] music to politicians, especially someone as divisive and hateful as this one.” To put it more succinctly; she ugly.
The NFL Warned Eminem And Dr. Dre Not To Get Political During The Super Bowl Halftime Show, Which They Did Anyway
The Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show (brought to you by Pepsi) happened last night, as expected, and it went off without a hitch. Dr. Dre was joined by Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent, and Anderson .Paak. No Left Shark here. Except, if you’re the NFL, then you might think that was the biggest PR disaster of a Super Bowl Halftime Show this side of Justin Timberlake’s hand exposing a titty. According to sources, the NFL really didn’t want Dr. Dre to sing one very specific anti-police lyric in “Still D.R.E.“, and they really really didn’t want Eminem to take a knee, a la Colin Kaepernick. That screen shot above might have been the exact moment all those NFL politically-averse control freaks dropped their Pepsis in shock. Because as you can see, Eminem took that knee, and Dr. Dre closed the show with “Still D.R.E.“, with that anti-cop lyric right where it usually is.
Dr. Dre and Nicole Young have been fighting over his reported $800 million fortune, but they have finally come to an agreement and their divorce settlement has been finalized. And Nicole’s not getting $2 million a month in spousal support as she wanted, but she is walking away with a whopping $100 million–which is sort of like getting $2 million a month for four years, so that’s a win in my book.
Dr. Dre And Nicole Young’s Never-Ending Divorce Is Coming To An End As Dre Throws Himself A Divorced AF Party
After divorce proceedings that seem to have lasted as their long 24-year marriage, it looks like Dr. Dre and Nicole Young are on the cusp of being free at last. And it only took a $1 billion legal battle to get it done! Dre and Young filed for divorce last June and have gone through round after round of mistress allegations, prenup messiness, and marital diss tracks like only Dre could serve. This has been going on so long that I’ve filed for divorce from news of their separation (I’m citing irreconcilable differences, in case you were wondering)!
Dr. Dre and Nicole Young have clearly been trying to beat Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt at having the messiest celebrity divorce on the block. Obviously, they have a lot of time to make up for since Brangelina has been divorcing for years now, but Nicole and Dre are really shooting their shot! Previously, Dre had an aneurysm which did not stop the divorce from being messy at all whatsoever, and then Dre immortalized the drama in song by dissing Nicole in a rap. Nicole accused him of having several mistresses and wanted to talk to them, and Dre accused her of embezzling money. Now shit has been elevated to another level of trashy hatred, as TMZ says that Dr. Dre’s camp claims that Nicole had a process server serve Dre with legal papers at his own grandmother’s burial site. But sources deny Nicole would ever do something so cruel! They claim it went down in the parking lot of the cemetery where his grandma is buried.
Welp! Being worth a reported $800 million sure has its (few) downsides. Court papers show that Dr. Dre‘s assets actually total $243 million, but that didn’t stop a judge from making him pay up some more. Dre was ordered to pay an additional $1.55 million to estranged wife Nicole Young for her ongoing legal fees, on top of the $2 million she got from him for expenses and the $3.5 million a year she gets in temporary spousal support. See? The more money you have, the more money someone can take from you in a divorce.
