Dr. Dre‘s estranged wife had the gall to dip into a well-funded cookie jar not just once, but TWICE … at least according to Dre’s biz partner, who’s now accusing her of grand theft.
Attorneys for Larry Chatman — who co-founded Record One studio with Dre in 2015 — just fired off another letter to Nicole Young … accusing her withdrawing an extra $30,000-plus from the business account, despite no longer being legally authorized.
We already told you about the $353k Larry claims Nicole embezzled from the account in late August. The company accused Nicole of criminal conduct in draining the account and fired off a letter to that effect. After receiving the letter, Chatman says Nicole siphoned another $31,457, two days AFTER she was given the boot and removed in any official capacity.
In Larry and his attorneys’ eyes … that amounts to grand theft … on top of the alleged $353k embezzlement from earlier.
And, yes, they’re threatening legal action.
Nicole’s attorney called their first accusation a “low-grade PR stunt” meant to embarrass his client and take the spotlight away from a recent lawsuit she filed against Dre himself … in which she accused him of hiding assets she feels entitled to in the divorce.
Nicole’s lawyer, Bryan Freedman, tells TMZ, “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.”
