Rapper and business mogul Dr. Dre’s wife Nicole Young filed for divorce on Monday in Los Angeles County Superior Court after 24 years of marriage. She moved to dissolve the marriage to the Beats by Dre co-founder citing irreconcilable differences, per multiple media sources.
Andre “Dr. Dre” Young and Nicole married on May 25, 1996, after dating for a year. They have a son, Truice (23), and a daughter, Truly (19), together.
Nicole Young, represented by celebrity divorce attorney Samantha Spector, is seeking spousal support; however, she will not seek child support as both children are adults. It’s being reported that the couple did not sign a prenuptial.
According to Forbes, Dr. Dre is worth an estimated $800 million. His fortunes come from his time as an N.W.A. member, solo rapper, producer, co-owner of Death Row Records, and founder/CEO of Aftermath Entertainment and Beats Electronics. Dre sold Beats by Dre to Apple Inc. in 2014 for $3 billion which technically, made him hip-hop’s first billionaire*.
