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

Nicole Young, wife of Dr. Dre, American media personality, has filed for divorce after 24 years of marriage. The exact reasons for the divorce remain unclear, though Young cited "irreconcilable differences" in the preliminary paperwork.

Young, 50, filed documents seeking to end her marriage with Dr. Dre, 55, whose real name is Andre Young - on Monday in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

According to TMZ, Dr. Dre and Young do not have a prenup, and Forbes reports that the Still D.R.E. rapper is worth $800 million.

Their union has been blessed with two children - Truice, their 23-year-old son, and Truly, their 19-year-old daughter.

Over the years Dr Dre has been getting accused by various women on abuse.


For her part, Young, who is a lawyer by trade, is also seeking spousal support and is being represented by high-power celebrity divorce attorney Samantha Spector.

Nicole, on the other hand, was previously married to Sedale Threatt, a retired National Basketball Association (NBA) player.

The pair was last seen publicly at the Tom Ford fashion show back in February with their daughter Truly looking svelte in all black and their usual composed best.

The rapper has four children from previous relationships.

Last year, Forbes estimated Dr Dre's net worth at U.S. $800 million, landing him the number two position on the list of the world's wealthiest hip-hop artists behind Jay-Z.
