Dr. Dre Ex Now Being Investigated For Embezzlement!
Things just turned criminal in the divorce proceeding between rapper/producer Dr. Dre and his estranged wife Nicole Young. Read on for more about Dr. Dre Ex Nicole Young beings investigated for embezzlement…
CelebnMusic247.com reports that the divorce between Dr. Dre and Nicole Young was already on track to be one of the most expensive ever, but now its gone further left.
Dr. Dre Ex Investigated by LAPD!
If you recall, back in September, Dre’s record company, Record One, issued a letter to the 50-year-old accusing her of “blatant and unjustifiable criminal embezzlement of corporate funds” after she allegedly removed a total of $353,571.85 from the company’s business account in two withdrawals. (Nicole was a trustee and signatory of said account.) The letter demanded the mother of two return the funds or face legal action
At the time, Nicole’s lawyer Bryan Freedman told the outlet:
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.
Fast forward to now since Team Dre is calling Nicole’s bluff.
The music mogul’s business partner Larry Chatman filed a report with the LAPD against Young for her withdrawal of the funds.
And what is worse is that the police are now “looking into” Chatman’s assertions of embezzlement. If charged, Young could face possible jail time.
What we are hearing is that Chatman’s lawyers have claimed Young’s name was removed from the account after withdrawal #1, in which case she definitely wouldn’t have had “contractual and legal” rights to the cash.
Which also means while the Beats by Dre entrepreneur wasn’t officially involved in reporting his ex to law enforcement, it’s hard to imagine he wasn’t at least aware that his business partner would make this move — and even might need his permission.
Dre Has Had Everything Fall in His Favor!
This development comes on the heels of a judge ruling in Dre’s favor against Nicole’s request for a staggering $1.5 million payment for her own security team. The 55-year-old’s legal team also condemned Nicole’s petition for nearly $2 million a month in spousal support.
However, Dre has expressed that he will continue to support his ex-wife and cover her living expenses. He said in a statement:
I have made it very clear to her by my words and actions that I want our dissolution to be amicable and for her to feel comfortable and respected.
We will keep you posted on how this will play out because it looks like its gonna get worse…
