After 24 years of marriage, Nicole Young, the wife of hip-hop mogul Dr. Dre, has decided to file for divorce [Source: TMZ]. In the divorce petition, Young cited irreconcilable differences as her reason for filing. Young and Dre, whose legal name is Andre Romelle Young, have been married since May 25, 1996, and share two children together. Thankfully, their kids are adults now which means the couple will bypass child custody and child support issues.
TMZ says sources close to Young are saying that the couple does not have a prenup and that Dre’s net worth is estimated to be about $800 million. Sources also claim Young is seeking spousal support from Dre. Young, who works as a lawyer, has hired Samantha Spector, a “high-powered celeb attorney” to represent her in the divorce. After TMZ reached out to one of Dre’s reps for comment on the divorce, he couldn’t provide one.
Author Dan Brown Hit with Lawsuit from Ex-Wife
In other news, the ex-wife of author Dan Brown, the man who wrote “The Da Vinci Code,” has filed a lawsuit against him alleging he “led a double life during their marriage that included a tryst with a Dutch horse trainer and other affairs” [Source: AP News]. In the lawsuit, Blythe Brown is seeking credit for “inspiring much of [Dan’s] work and coming up with the premise for “The Da Vinci Code.” The lawsuit claims Brown “hid scores of future projects worth “millions” from her, including a television series as well as a children’s book due out in September.”
Brown says her ex-husband “lived a proverbial life of lies for at least the past six years, seeming to be the epitome of a world-famous novelist leading a simple life in his home state of New Hampshire, while in reality, he was something quite different.” The couple divorced back in 2019 after being married for 21 years. In her lawsuit, Brown alleges her husband was “secretly diverting funds to pay for gifts to an unnamed horse trainer, including several Friesian horses and financing for his lover’s horse training business.” She claims the “illegal behavior took place in New Hampshire, Europe, and the Caribbean” while the two were still married.
