Beats by Nicole: No Pre-nup May Cost Dr. Dre A Lot

I need you guys to raise a glass to Dr. Dre….and then promptly pour one out for the mogul who’s most likely about to lose his ass in a divorce filed by wife Nicole Young. I hope you’re sitting down while pouring at that drink for Dre, 55, because TMZ says there’s no prenup and Dre’s reportedly worth $800 million or so.

I’ve never met the guy and have zero connections to him, not even a pair of Beats, and I feel the pain for him. They’ve been together 24 years, have adult kids and now it seems they’re heading for a split of the fortune.

From Forbes on the financial side of things:

It’s been five years since Dr. Dre proclaimed himself a billionaire, but Forbes still doesn’t agree with the assessment made in the wake of Apple’s $3 billion 2014 purchase of his Beats By Dr. Dre headphone line. The superproducer owned an estimated 20%-25% of the company at the time; of the $2.6 billion Apple paid upfront in cash, another $295 million was earmarked to cover debt payments, leaving Dre with a little over $500 million.
