Dr Dre's Estranged Wife Claims Ownership of His Stage Name

Earlier this month music producer Dr. Dre's wife Nicole Young filed for divorce and demanded $2 million a month in temporary spousal support [click here if you missed that].

Now Nicole is claiming ownership of Dre's stage name and his most famous album...
From People Magazine
In court documents obtained by PEOPLE, Young, 50, claimed that Dre (born Andre Romelle Young) “secretly” transferred “valuable trademarks” they jointly owned — both the name "Dr. Dre" as well as his hit album The Chronic — after allegedly kicking her out of their home in April.
In the lawsuit, Young alleges that shortly after being “forced to leave their family home,” Dre, 55, registered a new holding company and then began transferring the “highly valuable trademarks,” misrepresenting himself as the sole owner.
Nicole is seeking undisclosed damages and restoration of ownership. The divorce is ongoing.
