LOS ANGELES, CA - OCTOBER 11: Dr. Dre (L) and Nicole Young attend the City of Hope Spirit of Life Gala 2018 at Barker Hangar on October 11, 2018 in Santa Monica, California.

Dr. Dre is now being ordered to pay his estranged wife, Nicole Young, $1.55 million in attorney fees, per Page Six. 1 million will be allocated towards her lawyer and the other $550,000 towards other fees associated with the case.

The outlet states, “Young and her lawyers had previously said fees in the case were close to $4 million. The court papers reflect that Young’s legal tab can cost up to $1,100 per hour.”

Young is being represented by Samantha Spector, who is known to represent high-profile celebrity cases.

Previously the N.W.A rapper was ordered to pay Young $293,306 per month in spousal support beginning on Aug. 1, according to court documents obtained by Page Six.

A source spoke to the outlet and said, “the spousal support figure is consistent with what he’s been paying already and is a fraction of the $2 million per month that Young asked the court for in September 2020.”

The couple was married for 24 years and have two adult children, 24-year-old son Truice and 20-year-old daughter Truly.
