Dr Dre 's estranged wife Nicole Young has claimed she suffered years of abuse from the music mogul.
Nicole Young, 51, details several instances of alleged abuse from the musician, 55, claiming he "held a gun to my head" twice during their 24-year marriage.
Nicole's claims come after Dr Dre declared last week that "at no time did I abuse Nicole or threaten her physical safety," during their marriage.
Dr Dre – whose real name is Andre Romelle Young – is currently in hospital as he recovers from his life-threatening brain aneurism.
And now, more than six months after filing for divorce back in June, Nicole says Dr Dre "held a gun to my head" twice – once in 2000 and then again in 2001, according to court documents obtained by Daily Mail.

She also claims he "punched me in the head/face" in 1999 and 2000, and went on to "kick down a door" while she hid "from his rage" in 2016.
On top of that, Nicole alleged other instances of abuse throughout their marriage.
"Andre has verbally and emotionally decimated my personhood to the extent that I currently suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome," she said in the documents, filed to the Superior Court of California.
However despite his firm stance, Nicole has blasted his statement as a "blatant lie", according to court docs.

"Andre blatantly lies to to this Court when he states that 'at no time did I abuse Nicole or threaten her physical safety… at no time were the police ever called during our marriage'.
"I have explained in excruciating and painful detail the abuse that Andre has perpetrated against me over our more than 25-year relationship," she said.
She then claimed: "Andre held a gun to my head on two occasions, on January 8, 2000 and November 20 2001. Andre has punched me in the head/face on two occasions, in 1999 and on January 8, 2000.
"Andre kicked down the door to a bedroom in which I was hiding from his rage in 2016. Andre has verbally and emotionally decimated my personhood to the extent that I currently suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome."

She continued: "Andre conspicuously omits the fact that the police were called in approximately September 1995, shortly before our marriage, after he slammed me up against a wall and lifted me off the floor by my neck.
"During our marriage, I considered calling the police several times but, as I fell deeper into the abusive relationship, my fear of Andre outweighed any confidence I had that the police could help me."
Dr Dre last week claimed there is no documentary evidence of his abuse of Nicole, however she has an opposing opinion.
"First, there is documentary evidence of his abuse which has been produced," she said.

"Second, I have also offered extensive and painful testimony about Andre's relentless campaign of abuse and control over me for more than half my life."
She went on: "It is misleading, revolting and insulting for Andre to suggest that I have not been abused because, as a victim of relentless abuse and isolation, I did not create and maintain a contemporaneous record of the abuse inflicted on me.
"It is well known and accepted that most victims of domestic violence do not have documentary evidence of their abuse."
The Mirror has contacted Dr Dre's reps for comment.
