Much is known about Dr Dre and the exploits he has made in the music industry like helping to launch the careers of big names like Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cents, Snoop Dogg and more.

Nicole Threatt Wiki, Race/Ethnicity

Not being a celebrity herself, not much is known about Nicole’s early life. In fact, it was her marriage to Dre that made her popular and even so the fashion at which she became the rapper’s girl..more on that anon.

Nicole was born in the United States on 1 January 1970. Nicole Threatt is not her maiden name. She got the surname Threatt from her marriage to retired NBA star Sedale Threatt. She is now referred to as Nicole Young, that is from Dre’s real name Andre Romelle Young. Though her marriage to Dr drew more attention to her, Nicole has managed to maintain her privacy, giving little to nothing away when it comes to her personal life.

Nicole Threatt Career as Attorney

One of the major things known about Nicole is that she attended law school and even had a career as an attorney. However, upon her marriage to Dre, she stopped practicing. Who needs to appear in the law court to make money when your husband is a hip-hop mogul with a net worth of over $800 million? Nicole is definitely covered for life, as long as she stays married to Dre. However, she could be working on something else, maybe serving in one of her husband’s businesses, who knows? Her uber private life makes it very difficult to tell what she’s involved in.

Nicole Threatt Married/Husband

Before marrying Dre, Nicole was married to now-retired NBA player Sedale Threatt who is best known for his time with the Los Angeles Lakers. They married sometime in 1992 and three years later they divorced.

When Nicole met Dre in 1995, she was still married to Threatt, many speculate that it was the iconic gangster love letter that Dre wrote her that caused her to split from Sedale. At the time Dre wrote her the letter, he and Hype Williams were scouting for a location to shoot the music video for Tu Pac’s “California Love.”
