TMZ reports Dre is currently covering Young's expenses, which includes the cost of chefs, security, and maintenance for their home in Malibu, where she primarily resides.

WTAF doode, your stbx wants 900k a month for ENTERTAINMENT? What is she gonna do? Buy disneyland every month? FFS - If I had 900k I'd freaking invest it, so I wouldn't need 2 million dollars a month in support. So sorry you married that woman.

Young claims that Dre has prevented her from using credit cards and used threatening language when he demanded she not spend any money.

According to court filings, Young accused Dre of being intoxicated one night telling her: "Do not spend one more cent ... period. You can't be mean and disrespectful and spend my hard-earned money. Fuck that!!! Yes that's a threat ... I'm putting the beach house up for sale next week ..."

Young also recalled an alleged incident in which Dre's brother came to their Malibu home to retrieve a firearm for Dre. She said she became scared and refused to hand the gun over because her husband had "history of violence and coercive control, both before and during the marriage." She did not elaborate on this claim.
