Nicole Young, American rapper Dr Dre's wife, wants to challenge the prenuptial agreement between her and the musician.
According to her, her husband tore the prenuptial agreements to his multi-million dollar fortune a few years into their marriage, which may have rendered it invalid.
It was earlier reported that Young filed for divorce from the rapper after 24 years of marriage.
PEOPLE reported that the rapper's wife is asking the court for an early trial so as to know whether their prenuptial agreement is still valid, adding that it may affect the case.
Young revealed that before their wedding, the rapper had demanded that she signed a premarital agreement that was drafted by 16 of his lawyers.
She stated that Dr Dre had not achieved so much in his music, entertainment, and business career at that time. According to her, her husband's net worth is estimated to be around $1 billion, adding that he earned the majority of the wealth during their marriage.
Young said that her husband told her that she must sign the agreement else, he would not marry her.
Although reluctant, the 50-year-old woman said she signed the agreement out of fear as she had no option. She said she was pressured and intimidated by her husband into unwillingly signing.
However, about two to three years into the marriage, the rapper's wife said that he tore the premarital agreement with the excuse that he felt ashamed he had pressured her into signing it.
"Since the day he tore up the agreements we both understood that there was no premarital agreement and that it was null and void," she said.
