Meanwhile, TMZ reported on Tuesday that Dr. Dre already supports her lifestyle, so he refuses to pay a penny extra. According to legal documents, he allows “Young to stay in his Malibu mansion which reportedly costs around $25 million. He also covers her various expenses, noting that their business manager pays her AmEx Centurion Black Card bills,” the outlet writes. 

“This all seems like the wrath of an angry person being exacerbated by opportunistic lawyers,” Dre said, noting that he has paid $5 million in lawyer fees for Nicole, who filed for divorce two month ago — citing irreconcilable differences as the motive for the split.

Most recently, she reportedly took almost $400,000 from Dre’s record company’s business account.

Most interesting of all is that Young was aware of Dre’s abusive past and married him anyway. Now she’s complaining about it in her divorce petition.

Here’s more via TMZ:

Nicole also claims Dre is furious at her that her lawyers are trying to dig into his personal finances, threatening “war” if she persists.

She also claims she became alarmed when he had his brother-in-law come to the Malibu home to pick up his Glock. She says she feared Dre and wouldn’t turn it over because she says Dre had a “history of violence and coercive control, both before and during the marriage.” She does not elaborate, but does mention texts messages from Dre after they separated. In one, he said, “Why are you ignoring me? Why are you ignoring me … should I come see you?” She says the text was “frightening” and instilled fear in her.

“We never really together publicly talk about Janet, and what happened, and for me it felt like I couldn’t celebrate 30 years of ‘Fresh Prince’ without finding a way to celebrate Janet,” Smith tells co-stars Reid, Karyn Parsons (Hilary), Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton), Tatyana Ali (Ashley), DJ Jazzy Jeff (Jazz) and Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey) in the reunion taping. 

Ribeiro, who played Carlton on the show, didn’t stick around for the emotional moment between Smith and Hubert. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, het claims he couldn’t be on set that day due to filming commitments with “America’s Funniest Home Videos”. 

“Unfortunately I had to go shoot that day. All of the social media content and the photographs were taken without me,” he said. “I literally did my own photo shoot on the couch so they could put me in the group photo. The actual special was filmed in one day, but all the other stuff was done on the other days.”

Meanwhile, Hubert also addressed speculation about why Ribeiro didn’t show up, telling fans to “let it go.”

Patrik-Ian Polk (“P-Valley,” “Being Mary Jane”) will write the script, alongside Union, Hill, Carter and Holly Shakoor Fleischer will co-executive produce.

In related news, on the Nov. 23 episode of Daily Pop, Union dished about the holiday traditions she and husband Dwyane Wade look forward to every year.

“The only thing that has been consistent about how me and my husband have celebrated is our lack of consistency,” Union joked. “Because both of our lives are so transient.”

She added,  “My husband was never in one place. He always played on Christmas. A lot of times he played on Thanksgiving,” explained the L.A.’s Finest actress. “So celebrating in different cities—it might be in a hotel room in Philly having a turkey sandwich— as long as we’ve been together, that’s only our real tradition.”

Union and Wade are parents to a baby girl named Kaavia James, and Gabby is also a stepmother to Wade’s other children Zaire, 18, Zaya, 13, Xavier, 6 and his nephew Dahveon, 19. 

“We’re gonna keep some of the things we’ve always done, like a candied ham,” she shared. “Since I was a kid, there has been a candied ham. Even when there wasn’t a turkey, there was a ham.”
