Dr. Dre’s Wife, Nicole Young, Files for Divorce After 24 Years of Marriage
She forgot about Dre.
Dr. Dre’s wife, Nicole Young (represented by Samantha Spector), filed for divorce on Monday after 24 years of marriage, Page Six can confirm. The now-estranged couple shares two adult children together, 23-year-old son Truice and 19-year-old daughter Truly.
Dre, 55, and Young, 50, married in 1996. There’s no prenuptial agreement in place, according to TMZ, which could leave the famed music producer’s reported net worth of $800 million up for grabs.
Reps for Dre and Young didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
“The Chronic” rapper’s personal life has made headlines for years, and in 2015 he apologized to “the women I’ve hurt” following renewed allegations that he’d physically abused women in the past. He had been accused of assaulting ex-girlfriend Michel’le, journalist Dee Barnes and former label mate Tairrie B. Prior.
In 2017 he admitted in his HBO docuseries “The Defiant Ones,” “Any man who puts his hands on a female is a f–king idiot. He’s out of his f–king mind, and I was out of my f–king mind at the time. I f–ked up. I paid for it. I’m sorry for it, and I apologize for it. I have this dark cloud that follows me, and it’s going to be attached to me forever.”
“It’s a major blemish on who I am as a man,” he added.
