Dr. Dre's estranged wife, Nicole Young, has accused the music mogul of physical, verbal, and emotional abuse. The pair are locked in a bitter divorce battle as Young fights to secure a share of Dre's estimated $1 billion empire and now, in court documents obtained by Daily Mail, Young has claimed that her soon-to-be ex-husband punched her in the face, held a gun to her head, and slammed her against the wall then lifted her off the ground by her neck.
The fling comes in response to Dre's declaration that her allegations of abuse are untrue. Young slammed Dre for stating "blatant lies."
"I have explained in excruciating and painful detail the abuse that Andre has perpetrated against me over our more than 25 year-relationship," she said in the documents cited by Daily Mail. "Andre held a gun to my head on two occasions, on January 8, 2000, and November 20, 2001," she claimed. "Andre has punched me in the head/face on two occasions, in 1999 and on January 8, 2000."
Young further recalled a 2016 incident in which Dre allegedly kicked down the door of a bedroom in which she was "hiding from his rage."
"Andre has verbally and emotionally decimated my personhood to the extent that I currently suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome," she continued.
In his declaration, Dre claimed that police were never called to their house for a domestic disturbance during their marriage but Young pointed to an incident in 1995 that took place before they were married during which police were contacted "after he slammed me up against a wall and lifted me off the floor by my neck."
Young added that she had considered calling the police on several occasions during her marriage to Dre but said: "As I fell deeper into the abusive relationship, my fear of Andre outweighed any confidence I had that the police could help me."
As news of the latest filing breaks, Dre is recovering after he was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for a possible brain aneurysm, Los Angeles Times reported last week. In a statement to Instagram, Dre said he was "doing great" and "will be out of the hospital and back home soon."
