Dr. Dre’s record company claims his estranged wife Nicole Young “decimated” the company’s bank account.
In a letter to Nicole, obtained by TMZ, Record One recording studio’s lawyers accuse her of criminal embezzlement.
They claim she drained the company’s bank account last month of $363,571.85 and even attached a copy of the check Nicole wrote to herself.
Dr. Dre founded the company in 2015 with Larry Chatman. Nicole was a trustee and signatory on the LLC’s checking account, according to TMZ.
The lawyers accuse Nicole of “blatant and unjustifiable criminal embezzlement of corporate funds” in the letter.
Now Dr. Dre is demanding she return the money no later than Tuesday, otherwise, they say they’ll be suing her.⠀⠀
Nicole’s lawyer, Bryan Freedman, told TMZ, “This is just a low-grade PR stunt by Andre and his team to try to change the fact that he was caught red-handed and sued for trying to cheat Nicole out of community property to which she is entitled. There is no question that Nicole had both the contractual and the legal right to have taken this action, and Andre’s team is well aware of this fact. Any suggestion she did something untoward is preposterous and pathetic.”
This is just the latest drama to come out of Dr. Dre and Nicole’s divorce after 24 years of marriage. She filed for divorce back in June and is now asking for nearly two million a month in temporary spousal support.
Dre filed a response, revealing the couple’s prenuptial agreement. But now, according to PEOPLE, Young is claiming she was forced to sign it, and Dre eventually ripped it up, which she said made it invalid after their marriage.
