Most recently, news came that the famous music producer and artist, Dr. Dre, who helped and got Eminem the fame he has at the moment, is getting divorced from wife Nicole Young.

Unsurprisingly, there are a lot of people who do not already know who Nicole is and that’s completely fine as well.

It’s because Nicole likes to keep a very low-profile despite her husband being a music mogul.

Here’s everything you should know about Nicole Young

Nicole Young Age, Bio, Background

Wife to music mogul Dr. Dre, Nicole Young was born on January 1, 1970, in the United States of America. 

At the moment, Young is 50 years old and true to her last name, she looks very young for her age.

Born in the United States, Nicole is American by nationality and shares mixed ethnicity.

After graduating from university, Nicole began working as an attorney. However, after marriage with Dr. Dre, Nicole left her attorney's job.

Nicole Young Marriage, Past Divorce, Husband

For anyone who did not know already, Nicole was married to another man before she hitched with Dr. Dre.

That’s right people. While everyone knows that Nicole is Dre’s first wife, she previously had a failed marriage.

Previously, Nicole Young was married to former NBA player Sedale Threatt. However, after some time, Nicole and Sedale divorced from each other. 

Marriage with Dr. Dre

After the divorce from Sedale Threatt, Nicole met Dr. Dre, and both fell in love with each other. On May 25, 1996, Nicole and Dr. Dre married each other quietly and began living as husband and wife.

After marrying, Nicole and Dre welcomed their first child together in 1997, a son, and named him Truice Young.

Children of Dr. Dre

Followed by a son, Mr. & Mrs. Young welcomed another child in 2001, a daughter, and named her Truly.

Apart from Truice and Truly, Dre also has children from his other relationships. Dre fathered a son in his teen days named Curtis, whom he met only 20 years later.

Dre fathered another baby, a daughter named La Tanya Danielle Young, born in 1983 and another child in 1988 named Andre Young Jr. Andre young Jr died in 2008 from a drug overdose.

Divorce From Husband Dr. Dre

On Monday, June 29, 2020, Nicole filed for divorce from her husband of 24 years as she processed the documents at the Los Angeles County Superior Court.

Nicole did not specify any details about the divorce, and the documents presented the reason for divorce as irreconcilable differences.

In lights of the divorce papers, another fact sprung to light that there’s no prenup agreement between the couple.

This means that Nicole could get as much as half of Dre’s massive $800 million net worth. That is some serious blow to the music mogul’s bank account.

At the moment, there’s no official statement from either of the couple.

Nicole Young’s Net Worth

Young previously worked as an attorney before she married Dr. Dre, whose real name is Andre Romelle Young. 

Since Dre’s career as a musician, producer flourished, and he began making serious money, Nicole’s net worth also increased.

However, this divorce may just give a massive boost to Nicole’s net worth to hundreds of millions of dollars.
