Dr. Dre is divorcing his wife!
According to TMZ, his wife of 24 years, Nicole Young, has just filed for divorce. The outlet says Young filed the paperwork on Monday (June 29), citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split.
The HipHop legend married Young in 1996 and they have two adult children together — Truice and Truly. Sources close to the situation claim the couple didn’t have a prenup, which means Young could be entitled to a healthy chunk of the Hip Hop mogul’s estimated $800 million fortune. After all, Young is seeking spousal support as well. Young has hired celebrity attorney Samantha Spector to take on the case.
Young, a lawyer, was previously married to NBA player Sedale Threatt whom she wed in 1992. They were married for three years before deciding to go their separate ways. She and Dre met while she was still legally married to Threatt.
According to Celebtattler, Young decided to leave Threatt after Dre penned a letter begging her to be with him instead.
