Dr. Dre's estranged wife, Nicole Young, is making new claims against the music mogul.https://t.co/c7TldHKal5— Entertainment Tonight (@etnow) January 13, 2021
Nicole goes on to allege that throughout their marriage, Dre has "verbally and emotionally decimated my personhood to the extent that I currently suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome."
Police were never called during their marriage because she feared her husband.
"I have also offered extensive and painful testimony about Andre's relentless campaign of abuse and control over me for more than half of my life. It is misleading, revolting and insulting for Andre to suggest that I have not been abused because, as a victim of relentless abuse and isolation, I did not create and maintain a contemporaneous record of abuse inflicted on me."

• Nicole claims that Dre held a gun to her head on two occasions.
• She also claims that he punched her in the head/face twice.
• He kicked down the door to her bedroom when she was allegedly hiding from his rage.
• He allegedly slammed her up against a wall and lifted her off the floor by her neck.
Last week, Dre agreed to a temporary spousal support payment of $2 million.
He will continue to cover Nicole's living expenses at her Malibu home, as well as her mother's Pacific Palisades house for the next several months.
He will not be responsible for covering $5 million in legal fees or the hiring of a new personal security detail.
