Hip-hop mogul Dr. Dre was ordered on Tuesday to pay half a million dollars to divorce attorneys for his estranged wife Nicole – but that’s just 10 percent of the whopping $ 5 million she demanded.

Nicole – who claimed in legal documents that Dre has more than $ 260 million in cash and Apple stock on hand – claims she has the right to continue the lavish lifestyle she had as Ms. Andre Young – which she said it cost about $ 2.3 million a month. .

Nicole has accused Dre of “rampant and repeated misconduct,” and she has filed legal documents to find out if he fathered a child out of their marriage.

She also named three of his alleged mistresses – singer Jillian Speer, model-turned-skincare entrepreneur Kili Anderson, and Crystal Rogers, aka Crystal Sierra, known as the ‘Queen of Latin hip-hop’ – and earlier this month, a judge ordered all three to be testify in the Dre divorce case.

The biggest point of contention over this bitter divorce was the pre-marital agreement (PMA) the couple signed just before they married in Maui, Hawaii on May 25, 1996.

Nicole claims she was ‘forced’ to sign the PMA and after their wedding, Dre tore it up in a romantic gesture of love for her. He insists he didn’t force her to sign the PMA, he never destroyed it, and it never changed.

Dre asks the divorce judge to determine if the PMA is valid and enforceable.
