Dr. Dre's billion dollar fortune is now on the line after his wife, Nicole Young, files for divorce.

Young said she moved to dissolve her marriage citing irreconcilable differences.

The rapper and producer, whose real name is Andre Young, has amassed millions throughout his career in the entertainment industry as co-owner of Death Row Records and founder and chief executive of Aftermath Entertainment and Beats Electronics, which he sold to Apple in 2014 for more than $4b. She is seeking spousal support. The pair share two adult children together, daughter Truly Young, 19, and son Truice Young, 23.

Dr. Dre also has four children from previous relationships: daughters Tyra Young and La Tanya Danielle Young as well as sons Marcel and Curtis.

According to TMZ, Dr. Dre and Young do not have a prenup, and Forbes reports that the Still D.R.E. rapper is worth $800 million.
