After almost two and a half decades, it seems that someone has decided that the time has come to forget Dre. As reported for the first time by TMZ and confirmed by PeopleNicole Young filed for divorce Monday at Los Angeles County Superior Court from Dr. Dre, the stage name of Andre Romelle Young, after 24 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences.
Formerly married to former LA Laker Sedale Threatt, Young married the rapper and producer on May 25, 1996. The couple had two children, his son Truice, born in 1997, and Veramente, born in 2001. They joined the four Dre’s children from previous relationships and his son Andre Andre Jr., who died in 2008 at the age of 20.
In December, Dr. Dre, whose current estimated value is around $ 800 million, passed Forbes the list of the ten most profitable musicians ahead of Taylor Swift and Beyoncé, despite not having released an album since 2015. The music mogul has reportedly earned $ 950 million since 2010, largely due to his 20% stake in Beats Electronics, which Apple bought for $ 3 billion in 2014. According to TMZ, the pair reportedly don’t have a pre-nup.
