Dr Dre's wife of 24 years Nicole Young files for divorce

Dr. Dre posted with his wife on Instagram in 2018 celebrating their wedding anniversary of 22 years.

When Nicole Young met and fell for Dr. Dre she was, in fact, still married to her first husband, former National Basketball Association player Sedale Threatt.

Dr Dre, real name Andre Young, married Nicole in 1996 and the couple went on to have two children, Truice, 23 and Truly, 19.


Dr. Dre's billion dollar fortune is now on the line after his wife, Nicole Young, files for divorce. Young, who's also an attorney, allegedly filed for separation from the mogul, citing irreconcilable differences after 24 years of marriage and is seeking spousal support.

The couple had no prenuptial agreement-and that could be part of a possible divorce. Young was formerly married to National Basketball Association participant Sedale Threatt.

The entrepreneur, 55, is worth an estimated $800 million, according to Forbes, which has consistently included Dre on its list of the world's wealthiest hip-hop artists.


Young was formerly married to National Basketball Association player, Sedale Threatt, and is a trained lawyer.

The rapper, who is also the founder and CEO of Aftermath Entertainment and was previously co-owner of Death Row Records, has not issued a statement regarding the divorce. He later cofounded Beats Electronics, the high-end headphone and speaker company.

An email to Dr. Dre's publicist trying comment on the prosecution filing wasn't immediately returned.
