Dr. Dre’s Wife Nicole Young Files for Divorce After 24 Years of Marriage
On Monday Nicole Young filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for her split from the hip-hop tycoon. Sources connected to Young tell TMZ that there is no prenuptial agreement and that Young is also seeking spousal support.
The couple married in May 1996, the same year Dre left Death Row Records to start his own label, Aftermath Entertainment. They share two children, a son named Truice, 23, and a daughter named Truly, 19. According to Forbes, Dre’s net worth is estimated at $800 million. In 2014, Apple purchased Beats Electronics for $3 billion. The super-producer owned an estimated 20-25 percent of the company at the time.
Nicole, who was formerly married to NBA player Sedale Threatt, worked as an attorney before her marriage to Dre. She is being represented in the divorce by high-powered celebrity attorney Samantha Spector.
