Dr Dre's wife of 24 years Nicole Young files for divorce

Dr. Dre

Peep the Twitter hysteria over Dr. Dre's looming divorce on the flip. The exact reasons for the divorce remain unclear, though Young cited "irreconcilable differences" in the preliminary paperwork.

The couple has two adult children, 23-year old boy Truice and 19-year old daughter Really.

The news outlet also reported that the duo do not have a prenup - a written contract entered into by a couple prior to marriage detailing what happens when the union eventually ends by death or divorce.

Sources close to Nicole Young are saying there is no prenuptial agreement between the two.

Last year, Forbes estimated Dr Dre's net worth at United States $800 million, landing him the number two position on the list of the world's wealthiest hip-hop artists behind Jay-Z.

Dre, whose real name is Andre Romelle Young, had four children from his previous relationships.

The same year, the rapper purchased a $40m home in the Brentwood neighbourhood of Los Angeles from its previous owners, National Football League player Tom Brady and supermodel Gisele Bundchen.

Dre rose to fame from the streets of Compton in the 1980s in the groundbreaking gangsta rap group N.W.A.

Finding more ways to build on his resume, Dr. Dre launched his own line of headphones, Beats by Dr. Dre, in 2008. The same month, Dre talked about his birthday plans that included his wife, during an interview with BigBoyTV.
