Dr. Dre

Arab News - - Radar -

Rap­per and hip-hop mogul Dr. Dre and his wife Ni­cole Young are di­vorc­ing af­ter 24 years of mar­riage.

Ac­cord­ing to The Times, Young filed for di­vorce from the Comp­ton-bred icon on Mon­day at the Los An­ge­les Superior Court, cit­ing ir­rec­on­cil­able dif­fer­ences as the rea­son for their split.

Nei­ther the rap­per’s at­tor­ney nor Young’s at­tor­ney gave a com­ment about the di­vorce re­quest. Dr. Dre, whose real name is An­dre Young, and Ni­cole were mar­ried in May 1996 and have two chil­dren, 23-year-old son, Truice, and 19-year-old daugh­ter, Truly.

An at­tor­ney based in Ne­whall says that Young is seek­ing spousal sup­port from Dr. Dre. Ac­cord­ing to TMZ, the cou­ple did not have a prenup­tial agree­ment. If this is true, it could make split­ting Dr. Dre’s mul­ti­mil­lion­dol­lar for­tune quite the un­der­tak­ing.

Forbes has con­sis­tently in­cluded Dr. Dre on its list of the world’s wealth­i­est hip-hop artists, as his for­tune is es­ti­mated to be worth $800 mil­lion.
