Dr. Dre’s messy divorce battle is finally coming to an end and the rapper couldn’t be more excited, as he threw himself a ‘Divorced AF’ party to celebrate his split from his ex-wife of 25years, Nicole Young.
According to TMZ, Dre and his estranged wife recently came to an agreement after more than a year of divorce proceedings. The outlet reports Dre agreed to pay Young a $2 million lump sum as well as half a million dollars to cover her attorney fees.
In the $1 billion legal battle over their fortune, the duo fought over the validity of their prenuptial agreement, among other things. In new court documents made available in January, Nicole had accused Dr. Dre of abuse, alleging that he held a gun to her head twice.
In court documents obtained by PEOPLE, Young claimed Dre had “punched me in the head/face” in 1999 and 2000 and “kicked down a door” while she hid “from his rage” in 2016.”
Dr. Dre, however, denied the allegations, telling a court, “At no time did I ever abuse Nicole or threaten her physical safety.” While he has maintained that the allegations are false.
Celebrating his divorce, the 56-year old rapper was pictured posing with a celebratory display of balloons marking his newly single status in an image posted by Breyon Prescott on Thursday.

‘Hey Well My Brother @drdre Just Told Me It’s Final !!! Congrats (champagne bottle emoji) Still Dre (goat and flexed bicep emojis),’ Prescott captioned the photo.
Dre and Young tied the knot back in 1996, and share two children: a 24-year-old son, Truice Young and a 20-year-old daughter, Truly Young.
