According to The Sun, the last time Dr. Dre and Nicole Young were seen together at a public party was at a Tom Ford fashion show in February 2020. They were “all smiles”, as in The Blast, holding hands and strutting the red carpet with their daughter, Truly Young. (The couple also share a son named Truice).
Earlier that month, Dr. Dre bragged about his wife’s cooking skills and discussed the quality time they planned to spend together on her birthday. “I’ve decided to keep a low profile this time I’m going to invite a few friends and my wife will make a crab stew for me,” he reported that he told BigBoyTV about his birthday plans. “I love crab. We’re gonna kick it.”
The rapper of “Keep Their Heads Ringin'” doesn’t publish a lot of content on social media, but he honored their anniversary in 2018 by sharing sweet photos of the two of them jumping on a helicopter for a Hamilton screening. Despite the positive image of the powerful couple, the news of the divorce stimulates discussion about Dr. Dre’s dark past.
Dr. Dre Has A Dark History With Women
At the time of this writing, neither Dr. Dre nor Nicole Young have disclosed details of their separation, but the news of the divorce has sparked conversations about the controversial rapper’s history with women.
Many women have accused the music magnate of abuse and infidelity. In 2015, Dr. Dre talked about his dark past in an interview with The New York Times. “I’m doing everything I can to never look like that man again,” he said. “I apologize to the women I’ve hurt. I’m deeply sorry for what I’ve done and I know it’s had an impact on our lives forever.”
Rapper Straight Outta Compton also talked about his past in HBO’s docu-documentary series The Defiant Ones. “Any man who gets his hands on a woman is a fucking idiot,” he said (via NME). “He’s out of his mind, and I was out of my mind at the time. I fucking… I got this dark cloud following me, and it’s gonna stay with me forever. It’s a big stain on who I am as a man.”
