As theGrio previously reported, Young requested more than $2 million per month from her husband. The expenses included a $20,000 telephone bill, $125,000 budget for charity, and more.

Her request was eventually reduced to $1.5 million, before being thrown out altogether.

Young now says she is receiving death threats.

According to a TMZ report, the judge also dismissed Young’s request to have Dre pay her lawyer’s fees, estimated to be around $5 million.

TheGrio also reported that Young’s legal team claims she is “having difficulty paying her bills” and that Dr. Dre has “been exerting financial control” over his ex by “ordering his agents to scrutinize her bills” before he decides on paying them or not.

TMZ has noted people on the internet were saying things like, “If she dies, she dies,” and “For a small fee she can disappear.”

The judge rejected her claim, saying that she got rid of her security team, which was paid by Dre. She said she wanted to hire security on her own, and she claimed Dre threatened to fire the security if security disobeyed his orders, TMZ reported.

Dre’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, told the judge Dre wants to pay all of Young’s expenses pending the divorce, including security.

The judge told Young that she can choose her own private security company, but it can’t cost more than what Dre was paying, according to TMZ.
