Dr. Dre and his wife Nicole Young have split after 24 years of marriage.

PEOPLE confirms Young filed for divorce on Monday, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for their separation. She is seeking spousal support.

Attorneys for the pair did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

The couple, who made their last public appearance together at the Tom Ford fashion show in February, wed in May 1996 and share two children together: son Truice, 23, and 19-year-old daughter Truly.

Dre, born Andre Romelle Young, is also dad to four kids — daughters Tyra Young and La Tanya Danielle Young as well as sons Marcel and Curtis — from previous relationships. (Son Andre Young Jr. died at age 20 in 2008.)

The mother of two was previously married to NBA player Sedale Threatt.

Dre, 55, and Nicole do not have a prenup, according to TMZ.

In 2019, Forbes estimated the music mogul’s net worth at $800 million, putting him at No. 2 on the year’s list of the world’s wealthiest hip-hop artists. In December of that year, Dre topped the earnings of the decade with $950 million, thanks mostly to his Beats Electronics empire.

Before he wed Young in 1996, Dre amassed his fortunes as a founding member found fame of the rap group N.W.A. before releasing his solo debut studio album The Chronic in 1992  under Death Row Records, which he co-owned, before he founded his own label, Aftermath Entertainment, and signed Eminem and 50 Cent.

After they wed, in the 2000s, Dre focused on producing for other artists, including 2Pac, Snoop Dogg,  The Game and Kendrick Lamar.

Then in July 2008, he released his first product under Beats by Dr. Dre. The success of his Beats business garnered interest from Apple, which purchased Dre’s brand for $3 billion in May 2014.

50 Cent asks if he’s gay because he still finds Halle Berry attractive after she said she’d play a trans man

Actor Halle Berry made a public apology after receiving backlash for saying she was interested in playing a trans man. People weren’t happy with Berry’s remarks, particularly when trans people are so under-represented in film and television. In her apology, Berry said she wants to become an “ally” both on and off-camera.

Now 50 Cent has given his opinion on the whole furore, for reasons which are entirely unclear.

He seemed perplexed by the whole thing, and bizarrely asked whether it’s “gay” to find Halle Berry attractive after she expressed interest in playing a trans man.

*Face palms*

Of course Berry playing a man wouldn’t make her a man, which you’d think would be obvious to everyone. Plus, finding a man attractive (either trans or cisgender) doesn’t necessarily make someone gay, because bisexual, pansexual and queer people exist.

Anyway, none of this stopped 50 Cent from basically asking his followers: Fellas is it gay for men to think women are attractive?

This is far from the worst comment 50 Cent has made about the LGBTQ+ community.

In 2010, he suggested that his “homie” shot up a gay wedding after he had a falling out with gay blogger Perez Hilton. The same year, PinkNews reports he suggested that men who do not sleep with women should “just kill” themselves.

He wrote: “If you are a man and your [sic] over 25 and you don’t eat p***y just kill yourself damn it. The world will be a better place.”

Awful.

So it’s fair to say that 50 Cent won’t be headlining Pride anytime soon.

And perhaps he should keep his opinions on Berry – who at least had the decency to apologise thoughtfully – to himself.
