Divorce is nothing but a G Thang, it seems. After more than two decades together, Dr. Dre and his wife, Nicole Young, have called it quits.
Nicole Young filed for divorce from Dr. Dre on Monday, June 29, according to TMZ. After 24 years together, Nicole is splitting from the hip-hop icon, with TMZ reporting she cited “the usual irreconcilable differences” as the reason for her divorce. The two — who tied the knot together on May 25, 1996 – have two adult children together: a son, Truice, and a daughter, Truly. Due to their ages, neither Dre nor Nicole will have to negotiate child support.
However, there may be some legal issues about settling finances. TMZ reports that Nicole is seeking spousal support, but there was no prenup when these two tied the knot. Considering that Dre is reportedly worth an estimated $800 million, it’s possible that this split may get tied up in the courts. HollywoodLife has reached out to both Dre and Nicole for their comments. We will update this post with any more information when it’s made available.
Nicole reportedly works as a lawyer, and TMZ claims she’s being represented by “a high-powered celeb attorney, Samantha Spector.” Dr. Dre, as most of the world knows, is a founding member of the revolutionary rap group N.W.A., a successful solo artist (many say his 1992 album The Chronic is one if not THE best rap albums of all time), a highly-respected producer, record executive, and founder of Beats Electronics (aka the Dre in “Beats By Dre,” in case you didn’t know.”)
