Hip hop mogul Dr Dre has accused his estranged wife, Nicole Young, of lying about her abuse claims in an attempt to score herself a fat cheque from him.
The US music superstar has filed new legal documents claiming Nicole brought up his past history of domestic violence in an attempt to get cash out of him.
In the court papers, Dre said Nicole hadn't brought up the "false" allegations until after she saw that their prenup wouldn't allow her to receive half of his money.
Complex reports that in the docs obtained by TMZ, the Forgot About Dre hitmaker also denied that he abused Nicole before they got hitched, including the night before they tied the knot.
Nicole claimed in January that Dre held a gun to her head twice in 2000 and 2001 and punched her in the face twice, among other claims.
Social media users have shared mixed reactions to Dre's accusations. Check out some of their comments below:
"Women know how to manipulate the court system. Hopefully it doesn’t work."
"I mean Dr Dre's been beating women, why this a surprise."
"Lol, this is exactly how she knows she can get away with it. He has a history of it so of course they will believe it."
"Dr Dre needs to just say: 'Get back in the kitchen'."
"This b*tch needs to forget about Dre already."
"Doesn’t every thirsty woman do that. Extremely pathetic."
"Damn... that’s really low."
