Dr. Dre will not have to pay estranged wife Nicole Young $6.5 million in expenses related to their split, a Los Angeles judge ruled Thursday in a hearing on the matter.

Nicole Young had requested Dr. Dre pony up $5 million for lawyers fees and $1.5 in incidental expenses, according to TMZ, including security, as her legal team said she’s been threatened amid the split.

On Thursday, the judge dismissed her request, noting that she had previously fired a security detail the rapper had hired for her, the outlet reported.

Nicole’s legal team argued that Dr. Dre was using the detail as a means to control her – as the guards answered to him – and that she wanted to hire different people.

Laura Wasser, lawyer for the rapper-turned-headphones mogul, said that the rapper is fine with contributing for her expenses, including a security detail.

Nicole’s legal team was rejected in their request to have a January hearing – about whether he would pay her $5 million of court expenses – moved up to this year, TMZ reported.

The judge said this case did not appear to be critical in terms of the presence of domestic violence, and that if she felt her life was in danger, she should file for a restraining order from the rapper.

Young filed for divorce from The Next Episode artist earlier this summer after 24 years of marriage, as they share two children – son Truice Young, 23 and daughter Truly Young, 19.

The Been There, Done That artist and Young have been at odds over a prenuptial agreement, according to the outlet.

Nicole, who was previously wed to NBA player Sedale Threatt, said she initially signed one, but Dr. Dre later destroyed it during the better times in the marriage.
