The divorce proceedings between Dr. Dre and his soon to be ex-wife are uncovering some serious dirt. She has apparently left a paper trail of pilfering from the piggy bank.

As spotted on TMZ Nicole Young’s reputation is now being put to the test. Last week the iconic producer’s attorney Larry Chatman provided proof that she had allegedly helped herself to a big bag to the tally of $353,571.85.

According to a formal letter written by the lawyer she wrote herself a check from his Record One Studio’s bank account back in 2015. Even though she had been appointed as a trustee and signatory for the account he claims the transaction was not authorized and called the move embezzlement. Furthermore he demanded that she return the monies or that a formal suit would be filed against her.

This week Chatman put his foot on the pedal even further with a new accusation. He recently provided another processed check that was written out by her on September 9, 2020 to the amount of $31,457. And just like the aforementioned transaction she wrote it out to herself. Young’s lawyer is calling the accusations as frivolous. “This is a clear attempt to smear Nicole’s name.  As people are well aware, banks do not give out money to people who are not authorized to receive it” Bryan Freedman told TMZ. 

She previously accused the mogul of hiding assets from her and that he physically abused her. Dr. Dre has yet to comment on the matter.

Well, this is an odd twist. Jaguar Wright posted an Instagram video apologizing to Tiffany Haddish a month after accusing her boyfriend, Common, of sexual assault back when the musicians allegedly dated two decades ago. 

In the one-minute video clip, Wright professed her respect for the comedian and addressed the possible friction the accusation may have caused in Haddish’s relationship with the rapper while doubling down on her original story that sparked the controversy over the summer.

“There’s one person that I have not addressed directly,” Wright states in the video. “And the truth is because I have a lot of respect for her. I think that she is a wonderful comedian. I think she’s a great philanthropist. I just got off of her page and I just scrolled through like a month or two. I was just curious to see if everything going on in hip hop and neo-soul was affecting her in any way because I know that she’s in a relationship with, unfortunately, someone who became a target of my investigation. I just want to say to Tiffany Haddish, I got all of the respect in the world for you.”

Wright later admitted the apology was inspired by a conversation with a mutual friend, Luenell Campbell.

“Luenell has always spoken highly of you and there’s not much Luenell can say to me that I don’t take as Bible,” Wright admitted.  “So I just wanted to apologize, for real, for real, if anything that I have done has caused you distress.”

 

 

Previously, Wright went on Instagram Live and accused Common of sexual assault after the singer rejected his multiple pleas for sex during their relationship in 2000, allegedly. Things took a shocking turn when the pair woke up the next morning.  

“The next thing I know, I wake up. It’s morning and I feel something poking in my face and sh*t. And it’s just poking in my face, poking in my face. And I’m like ‘What the f*ck?!’ Then I open my mouth, this n*gga trying to stick his d*ck in my mouth while I’m sleep,” Wright continued. “Lonnie F*ckin Lynn. Rashid, Common, whatever the f*ck you want to call yourself. Because n*gga if you gon try to stick your d*ck in your mouth while I’m sleep, it ain’t nothing you won’t do.”

Da Brat is opening up about her past and sharing some deep life details.

In the most episode of Kandi Burruss’ Speak On It, the Chicago rapper got candid about exploring her sexuality and her relationships.  She discussed her current relationship with businesswoman Jesseca Dupart and the decision to come out publicly as bisexual.

While discussing past relationships, she opened up about dating former NBA player Allen Iverson in the past.

 

 

In the viral clip, she shared how close they were detailing times when they traveled aboard together and met each other’s families.  She mentioned that she really loved being domesticated for him by cooking and cleaning and in return, he spoiled her.  Though things between them were good, the rapper recalled fighting other women because of his basketball player ways.

“The last straw, I think we were sitting outside the hotel, in the hallway,” she says. “And this half-naked b***h, walks up the hallway talking about she looking for him. I’m sitting there with him. I’m like, ‘B***h, I know you see me sitting here with this [n-word]. You still gon say you looking for him?’ I must have molly whopped that b***h down the hallway.”

She says after the altercation, she decided to fall back from the relationship.

Dr. Dre’s Estranged Wife Says He “Expelled” Her From Home, Hiding Assets

Dr. Dre‘s divorce from his estranged wife, Nicole Young, is only getting uglier.

According to Young, the Hip-Hop producer “expelled” her from their home and has been hiding assets so she can’t get her hands on all the money she is seeking.

According to court docs, Dre kicked his wife out and soon started moving money around.

LIKE US ON FACEBOOK. FOLLOW US ON INSTAGRAM & TWITTER. SUBSCRIBE TO OUR YOUTUBE.

Per the New York Daily News:

Dre — born Andre Romelle Young — “forced” Nicole to leave their home April 2 “after a night of Andre’s alcohol induced, brutal rage” which included him telling his wife of 24-years to “get the f–k out,” the filing states.

It says Dre then “secretly” transferred his highly valuable “Dr. Dre” and “The Chronic” trademarks to a “new entity” on April 27, thereby denying her “equal ownership” after “years of domination, control, abuse and mistreatment.”

“How could someone treat his partner and spouse of 24 years, who helped transform him into a legitimate and respected business person as well as the devoted and hardworking mother of his three children with such indifference and misogyny, in disregard of her legal rights?” the 10-page complaint asks.

However, a source reportedly close to Dr. Dre is calling out the jig. According to TMZ, said source calls her pleas, “the act of a desperate woman who finally realized that the iron-clad prenup she signed doesn’t win her the lottery.”

Sounds like the drama is only just getting started.

Previously, Nicole Young caught flack for a high opening bid that included seeking $20,000 for cable, phone and Internet service, per month, amongst other asks.

50 Cent Inks Deal With Starz To Develop Female Sports Agent, Hip-Hop Anthology Drama Series

If there’s one thing 50 Cent knows how to do, it’s creating quality television for the culture.  We know it, and Starz knows it, too.

That’s why the network announced their new deal with the Queens rapper to develop two original scripted series for our screens.

Fif will develop both series as an executive producer through his G-Unit Film and Television imprint under his exclusive four-year deal with the premium network.

LIKE US ON FACEBOOK. FOLLOW US ON INSTAGRAM & TWITTER. SUBSCRIBE TO OUR YOUTUBE.

The first project follows the successful climb of a young, ambitious Black woman breaking through the obstacles of the highly competitive and male-dominated world of sports agents. The show might have the makings of being an instant hit with “Snowfall” and “Raising Kanan” script genius Tash Grey attached as executive producer and writer.  

And get this. The story is inspired by the life of attorney and sports agent Nicole Lynn, who made her mark as the first Black woman to represent a top 3 NFL draft pick.  As a University of Oklahoma alumni, the rising star earned her Bachelors Degree in Business Management and Doctor of Law (J.D.) with honors before trading her Wall Street job for the competitive world of sports at 26-years-old.  

 

Lynn currently represents NFL players, softball players, music artists, and soon will make way to dominate the NBA now that she’s received her certification earlier this year. As a matter of fact, she still actively practices law while juggling her dream job in sports.  

The second project taps screenwriter Abdul Williams to executive produce “Moment in Time: The Massacre,” the seasonal anthology series exploring the true stories behind Hip-Hop’s most iconic moments and sometimes criminal events behind-the-scenes.  Williams is an NAACP Image Award-winning writer whose work captivated fans with BET hit series “The New Edition Story” and “The Bobby Brown Story” a few years back. 

The first subject kicking off the season examines how 50 Cent and The Game’s feud snowballed into a street war between his group G-Unit and former record executive Jimmy Henchman. After catching a bunch of L’s trying to overturn his convictions, the disgraced promotor is currently serving a couple of life sentences in prison for drugs, guns, murder-for-hire charges.  The other stories rumored to be told in the series include Tekashi 69, Snoop Dogg’s murder trial, and the rise of NBA street legend Rafer “Skip To My Lou” Alston. 

Fif alreaduy has his hands in a couple of developments including the BMF series and a T.I. partnered docuseries exploring the journey of an N.Y.P.D. detective’s life as the department’s first Hip-Hop cop.
