Just what the doctor was ordered.

Dr. Dre has been ordered to pay another $1 million in legal fees to his estranged wife, Nicole Young, as their bitter divorce case continues to play out in Los Angeles, according to a ruling.

In the order, the judge in the divorce case ruled this week that the rapper and Beats mogul should pay Nicole another $1 million in legal fees — after already forking over $2 million.

The judge estimated that Nicole’s reasonable legal fees in the case should total $3 million, plus another $550,000 in costs. The $550,000 would also be paid by Dre, the judge said. The payment would be for attorneys’ fees through July 2, 2021.

Young and her lawyers had previously contended that the fees in the case were closer to $4 million, and court papers reflect that Young’s legal tab can cost up to $1,100 per hour. She is being repped in the case by hotshot celebrity attorney Samantha Spector.

The judge further ruled, as had been previously ordered, that Dre should pay Nicole $293,306 in monthly temporary spousal support — and that Dre must also pay for household costs including security, insurance, gardening, taxes, repairs and maintenance, retroactive to Sept. 1, 2020.

That comes to $3,812,987 over the past year, the judge estimated in the ruling, adding that the previously paid living expenses that Dre had turned over already may not have included all the costs for the home. The ruling also said that the parties must confer on any added expenses Dre owes Nicole on the household costs by next month.

Page Six previously reported that Dre was ordered to pay the $293,306 per month in spousal support until Young remarries or enters into a domestic partnership — or unless the court orders otherwise at a later date.

Young, 51, first filed to divorce Dre, 56, in 2020. The couple was married for 24 years and has adult children. The estranged pair have been arguing in court over a prenup.

Dre’s reported net worth is around $800 million. The new court papers say that he has assets of $243 million.

Reps for Dre did not immediately get back to us about the latest ruling.

Meanwhile, Dre also recently filed a separate lawsuit against Nicole for allegedly “stealing” about $350 million out of a recording studio business in Sherman Oaks, Calif., in which they were both involved.

But sources told The Blast that Nicole had already returned the money in question, and that it was taken out of an account the couple shared during their marriage, which she was entitled to do.

Dre is being repped in the divorce case by attorney Anne Kiley, whose clients have included Brad Pitt.
