Dr. Dre Dismisses Nicole Young's Abuse Allegations As Money Grab

Dr. Dre is denying his estranged wife, Nicole Young's claims of abuse -- calling them a "money grab."

In the docs obtained by TMZ, Dr. Dre says she didn't raise the allegations until after she filed for divorce and realized the prenup prevented her from getting half of his cash.

Nicole said that Dre held a gun to her head on two separate occasions in 2000 and 2001, punched her in the face twice, and kicked her down the door of a room she had been "hiding from his rage in 2016." 


"Andre has verbally and emotionally decimated my personhood to the extent that I currently suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome," she said in the documents, filed to the Superior Court of California.

She also explained why she never called the police.

"During our marriage, I considered calling the police several times; but, as I fell deeper in to the abusive relationship, my fear of Andre outweighed any confidence I had that the police could help me," she said.
