Music mogul Dr. Dre and his wife, Nicole Young, are reportedly ending their marriage, according to a report by TMZ.
Young filed paperwork Monday citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for her split from Dr. Dre, whose real name is Andre Young, after 24 years of marriage, TMZ reported.
The Youngs wed on May 25, 1996, and they have two adult children together: a son, Truice, 23, and a daughter, Truly, who is 19.
Sources connected to Nicole say there is no prenup. Dre’s net worth, according to Forbes, is estimated at $800 million.
His net worth climbed after the producer and former member of rap group NWA introduced the now-ubiquitous Beats by Dre headphones.
The couple made their last public appearance at the Tom Ford fashion show with Truly in February, according to the DailyMail.
On their 22nd wedding anniversary, Dr. Dre posted on Instagram about his wife and how they would celebrate by taking a flight to go see “Hamilton.”
Nicole Young, who was previously married to former Los Angeles Lakers point guard Sedale Threatt, is seeking spousal support.
She will be represented in the divorce by celebrity attorney Samantha Spector.
Neither party has commented about the filing.
