The couple met in the mid-1990s whilst Nicole was still married to then-husband Sedale Threatt, whom she split from in 1996 when Dre reportedly penned a romantic letter to Nicole which convinced her to leave the basketball star and pursue a romance with him instead.

Dr. Dre and his wife of 24 years are ending their marriage ... she's filed for divorce. The couple has two adult children together-a son Truice Young, 23, and a daughter, Truly Young, 19-so child support will not be included in the divorce proceedings. What could turn into a bigger issue in court is spousal support.

That means that Nicole could be entitled to half of the rapper's fortune.

Dre, a six-time Grammy victor, is said to be worth an estimated NZ$1.2 billion.

Dr. Dre recently made news as he and Kanye West, along with Snoop Dogg, were seen in the studio together while allegedly working on another version of West's "Jesus is King" album. The six-time Grammy Award victor built his empire as a music producer with Death Row Records and is the founder and chief executive of Aftermath Entertainment. They'd also celebrated Dre's 55th birthday that same month with low key festivities and his favorite food.

He also has a daughter named La Tanya.
