Nicole Young Accused Dr. Dre of Physical & Emotional Abuse
After filing for divorce in June 2020, Young accused the hip-hop mogul of abusing her during their 24-year marriage. In court documents obtained by Entertainment Tonight, Young claimed that Dr. Dre “verbally and emotionally decimated my personhood to the extent that I currently suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome.”
“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,” read court documents. “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.”
According to People, Young accused the “Next Episode” rapper of slamming her “up against a wall and lifted me off the floor by my neck” in September 1995, holding a gun to her head in 2000 and 2001 as well as punching her in her head and face and said she was “hiding from his rage” during an angry outburst in 2016 when he kicked down a bedroom door.
Young also explained why she didn’t call police when she was abused during their marriage in court documents obtained by People.
“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.”
Dr. Dre is Rumored to be Dating Apryl Jones
In February 2021, Dr. Dre was seen on a date with Love & Hip Hop Hollywood star Apryl Jones. According to Page Six, Jones and Dr. Dre were seen leaving dinner at the BOA Steakhouse in Los Angeles, California. Neither Jones or Dre has confirmed or denied the dating rumors.
Moniece Slaughter, who previously starred on Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, claimed that they have been dating for awhile.
“To the person that asked me if Apryl and Dre are together, yes they are,” Slaughter said during an Instagram Live with Kendra G. “And it’s been a while that they’ve been together — It’s been a while, it’s not new. I’ve known for a while, I was shocked just because of her public announcement that she’s polyamorous and that she has been with this one, this one, this one, that one, that one, that one. And she was on the internet patting her puss, so I was shocked that someone so established and refined as Dre would almost wife her.”
