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.
