Dre ordered to pay ex

Dr. Dre has lost another battle in his costly divorce - a judge has ordered him to hand his ex-wife another $1.5 million to cover more legal fees.

The rap mogul will now have to pay in excess of $4 million to cover Nicole Young's costs, according to legal documents obtained by The Blast.

Sources tell the site the charges are a result of Nicole hiring top family law experts, Samantha Spector and Lisa Helfend Meyer, who have "significant years of experience in family law and have extensive practical experience in complex family law matters."

The order from the judge reads: "Considering the level of the case's complexity, and the issues involved, an attorney of their level and skill is reasonably necessary; and therefore, the various hourly rates of the primary and secondary attorneys participating in this litigation are reasonable and justifiable.

"Considering what is just and reasonable and using the Court's own experience and knowledge that the payee's reasonable fees are $3,000,000 and costs are $550,000."

Adding that to the previous payments, the cost for Nicole's lawyers has now exceeded $4 million.

Meanwhile, according to the court order, the former couple's split assets amount to approximately $39 million for Nicole and an estimated $243 million for Dre.

The latest payments only run up to July, 2021, according to The Blast, and both sides are now being encouraged to meet and confer over what the costs might be to take the case to trial.
