Dr. Dre & Nicole Young to Divorce After 24 Years of Marriage

Dr. Dre and wife Nicole Young are calling it quits after 24 years of marriage.

Per TMZ, Young filed divorce documents on Monday, citing irreconcilable differences.

According to sources, the two did not sign a prenup before they tied the knot on May 25, 1996.

The music producer and the lawyer share two adult children together: son Truice, 23, and daughter Truly, 19.

In May 2018, Dre revealed on Instagram that he and Young celebrated their 22nd anniversary by traveling via helicopter to see “Hamilton.”

The co-founder of Beats Electronics is also dad to four other kids: daughters Tyra Young and La Tanya Danielle Young, as well as sons Marcel and Curtis, from previous relationships. Sadly, son Andre Young Jr. passed away in 2008 at age 20.

Nicole was previously married to NBA player Sedale Threatt.

In June 2019, Forbes reported Dre’s estimated net worth to be $800 million, putting him at No. 2 on the list of “Richest Rappers 2019.” The No. 1 spot went to Jay-Z, whose estimated net worth is reported to be $1 billion.

Before releasing his debut solo album “The Chronic” in 1992, Dre was a member of the legendary hip-hop group N.W.A. alongside Ice Cube and Eazy-E.

He also famously signed Eminem in 1998 and 50 Cent in 2002 to his Aftermath label.
