DR. Dre's wife Nicole Young insists she co-owns the trademark to his name in the latest twist of their nasty divorce, according to court documents.
After demanding $2million a month in spousal support, Nicole, 50, has has filed a new lawsuit against her ex.
PEOPLE reports that Nicole is accusing Dre – also known as Andre Romelle Young – of transferring"valuable trademarks" owned by them both, citing court docs.
It allegedly included his album The Chronis and his name Dr Dre.
The lawsuit claims: “Andre’s plan all along was to deny Nicole’s ownership rights.
“It is inequitable and unjust [for Dre] to retain ownership of the trademarks, and the value they hold, without paying Nicole or allowing her to maintain her equal ownership."
Nicole wants the trademarks returned, but has so far been refused, the website reports.
Although Young claims she has “demanded return of the trademarks,” Dre has “failed and refused to do so,” the lawsuit states.
She is now seeking damages at trial following the breakdown of their 24-year marriage.
Dr. Dre had claimed in previous court documents that the two had signed a prenup at the begging of their marriage, which protected his fortune.
In a declaration obtained by The Blast, Nicole claimed that the rapper and music producer had "extreme coercive control over her," which started shortly after their wedding when he allegedly forced her to sign a prenup.
In the documents, she claimed: "While talented, Andre's personal life was turbulent and violent and was marred by encounters with law enforcement, incarceration, and physical and emotional abuse against women."
Nicole is the mother to two of Dr. Dre's kids.
