Dr. Dre’s messy divorce from Nicole Young is ongoing, and Dre now faces a heavy blow in his case.
Page 6 reports that a judge ruled that the veteran producer must find a new lawyer in the event of his divorce. Young and her attorney Samantha Spector claim that one of Dre’s current attorneys, Howard King, has been Young and Dre’s attorney since their engagement and throughout their marriage. Dre’s other attorney, Laura Wasser, has also been “deputized” from Dre’s representation since working with King.
Spector and Young had actively tried to keep water off Dre’s case. Court documents state that the judge said Dre “is instructed to seek advice as soon as possible.”
Both Spector and Water are longtime Los Angeles divorce attorneys, and Water and Spector often fight in court. Water also has a number of high profile clients, including Kim Kardashian.
Dre and Young separated on March 27, 2020 and filed for divorce in June after being married for 24 years. They share two children: their 23-year-old son Truice and their 19-year-old daughter Truly. Dre provided temporary spouse assistance to Young during divorce proceedings in which the two were at odds over the validity of their preparations, especially since Dre is reportedly valued at around $ 800 million.
Earlier this month, Dre accused Young of making abuse claims to get more money out of him. Documents state that he believes she is using his past domestic violence to get to him after discovering that because of her preparations she would not receive half of his fortune.
