Nicole Young, Dr. Dre’s wife of 24 years, has filed for divorce. Young people have filed documents seeking to end her marriage with Dr Dre — the producer, rapper and music mogul whose real name is Andre Young-on Monday in the Los Angeles County Superior Court.
Nicole Young, 50, cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split, and she is seeking spousal support from the age of 55, Dr. Dre, who has amassed a substantial fortune in his time as an N. W. A. member, solo rapper, producer and co-owner of Death Row Records and founder and ceo of Aftermath Entertainment and Beats Electronics.
The couple has two adult children, 23-year-old son Truice and the 19-year-old daughter Really.
Dr. Dre has four children from previous relationships.
The two married in 1996. It was the first wedding of Dr. Dre. Young was previously married to NBA player Sedale Threatt.
An e-mail to Dr. Dre’s publicist seeking comment on the divorce filing was not immediately returned.
