However, there are conflicting reports on the exact location where the legal representative confronted Dre. A source close to the producer told TMZ he was approached while standing next to his grandma's casket.
However, sources close to Nicole said he was served in the cemetery parking lot after the burial. Dre did take the documents as he recoiled in anger.
The papers served to Dre involved a judge’s order directing him to finish paying Nicole's attorney fees.
The judge ordered him to pay N635m, but Dre paid N11m, saying the amount he was instructed to pay was erroneous.
The legal papers contained the judge’s final order for him to pay the N635m.
Nicole filed for divorce from Dre in July 2020, after 24 years together. She cited irreconcilable differences.

Nicole had initially demanded to be paid N738m per month and the N1.8bn for her lawyers. Dre previously agreed to pay her N738m as temporary spousal support.
In February, Nicole targeted Dre’s alleged mistresses, as she sought to find out if he gave them gifts and financial support during their marriage.
Nicole has claimed that one of the women purchased a N828m mansion and sought to establish if he gave her money to buy the house.
