Nicole Young, Dr. Dre’s estranged wife, reportedly served the rapper/producer with divorce papers at his grandmother’s funeral on Monday, escalating the already nasty court battle.

According to TMZ, who first heard wind of the bitter move by Nicole Young, a process server approached Dr. Dre, 56, right at the burial site in the Los Angeles cemetery, where he refused to accept the papers.

In an interview with the defunct hip-hop magazine The Source, Dr. Dre told music journalist Ro Ronin that he was mostly raised by his grandmother in Compton, CA, following his parents’ divorce.

Being served at the cemetery that day reportedly “enraged” Dre, whose real name is Andre Young. Most famous for his role as a member of rap group N.W.A., Dre went on to produce records for Snoop Dogg, Eminem, 2Pac, The Game, Kendrick Lamar, and Anderson .Paak, to name a few.

TMZ said that the Beats Entertainment co-founder “coiled in anger” after being served, forcing the server to drop the papers on the ground.

The documents reportedly detailed payment for Nicole Young’s attorney’s fees, which totaled over $1,550,000. The two have been disputing in court over how much money Dre believed he owed, citing the full fee as an error. According to TMZ, Dr. Dre has only paid $325,433, and the judge has ordered him to pay the remaining $1,224,567. The documents meant to be served to Dr. Dre at the cemetery of his grandmother’s funeral allegedly included the judge’s final warning.

The couple was married for 24 years before Nicole Young, 51, filed for divorce in June 2020. They have two children together, their 23-year-old son Truice and 19-year-old daughter Truly.

According to Nicole Young’s attorney’s, the pre-nuptial agreement Nicole signed was “ripped up” by Dr. Dre, invalidating his claim that he owes less than the court demands in spousal payments.

Nicole’s attorney also alleges that Dre’s estimated net worth of just under $1 billion was “largely earned and amassed during the parties’ approximate 24-year marriage,” and that she signed the voided prenup “as a result of duress, coercion and undue influence” as Dre “demanded” she sign before their wedding.

“Nicole has not had the same luxury since separation,” her attorneys told Billboard. “Andre has starved her of funds, has forced her to choose between this litigation and the maintenance of her status quo lifestyle, and she has found it impossible to keep up in either respect.”

Nicole Young has claimed entitlement to “Pendente Life,” a type of spousal support which states that “the parties’ standards of living in as close as possible to the pre-separation status quo, pending trial.”

In January, she claimed that her husband had subjected her to years of abuse. She described scenes of “rage” in which Dre would physically harm her and allegedly “held a gun to [her] head” twice, once in 2000 and another time in 2001.

“During our marriage, I considered calling the police several times; but, as I fell deeper in to the abusive relationship, my fear of Andre outweighed any confidence I had that the police could help me,” she said.

Dr. Dre has denied all of the claims against him, stating that, “at no time did I ever abuse Nicole or threaten her physical safety”

The California rapper/producer was recently announced to be headlining the 2022 NFL Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show, alongside Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar.

“The opportunity to perform at the Super Bowl Halftime show, and to do it in my own backyard, will be one of the biggest thrills of my career,” Dr. Dre told the NFL in an official statement. “I’m grateful to JAY-Z, Roc Nation, the NFL, and Pepsi as well as Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar for joining me in what will be an unforgettable cultural moment.”
