Nicole Threatt is an American lawyer, showbiz personality, and socialite. She is also known as Nicole Kendra Plotzker and Nicole Young (because of her marriage with Dr Dre). She was born on New Year’s Day, 1st January, 1970 in Brentwood California. Her early life, family background and educational credentials are not well known. But, everyone knows that she is lettered, and she earned a degree in law. But she doesn’t practice law. Instead, she willingly chose to be a dedicated socialite, mother and housewife.

She wasn’t a celebrity until her marriage with Dr Dre. Her marriage opened lots of doors of opportunities for her; she began to gain global prominence as a socialite. Close sources and the media speculated that living with one of the wealthiest Afro-American rapper was a great feeling for her.

Nicole is famous as the wife of the legendary music producer and hip-hop rapper, Andre Romelle Young, well known as Dr Dre, a multiple award-winning Grammys. He inspired many rap artists today including Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, and Eminem.

Nicole’s private life makes it extremely difficult to tell what she might be currently engaged with. It is possible she could be working on something big or even helping her husband in one of his businesses.

Net Worth

Nicole’s fortune before her marriage with Dr Dre was unknown. She had brief working experience as an attorney but stopped practicing when she got married to Dr Dre. Who needs a job when her husband worth millions of dollars? Her husband, Dr Dre has a cash flow of over $800 million and still counting. In fact, he was recently described by Forbes Magazine as one of the richest rappers. In 2014, Apple acquired her husband’s company, Beats, for a whopping sum of $3.2 billion.

Today, Nicole and her children are living in a luxurious lifestyle, thanks to her hardworking and stupendously wealthy husband. Her current residence in Brentwood, California is a super-size mansion, which caters for their kingly lifestyle. This residence was bought in 2014 for $50 million. They have another house in Sunset strip which is estimated at $15.5 million. Dr Dre appeared in the Forbes list as one of the wealthiest producers and rappers in America in 2014.


Nicole dated Dr Dre for four months before they finally got married in 1996. She is 7 years younger than Dr Dre. Her marriage with Dr Dre was actually her second marriage. Earlier, she was married to NBA player, Sedale Threatt who played for Philadelphia, the Chicago Bulls, The Seattle Supersonics, The Los Angeles Lakers, and The Houston Rockets before he eventually retired from basketball.

She had a tough time living with her first husband; their marital union was spiced with frequent misunderstandings and quarrellings. Thus, they eventually parted ways after several years of marriage.

When they were still working on their divorce proceedings, Nicole got a letter from Dr Dre who convinced her to be her girlfriend. This letter soon after surfaced in the media. In the said letter, Dr. Dre told Nicole to leave her ex-husband, Sedale for him and promising to take care of her.

After their divorce, Nicole found herself in the arms of the multi-talented and award-winning rapper, Dr Dre. Many speculated that Dre’s love letter and charm worked on her. With the way their love life was being oiled, it seems leaving her ex-husband was the best decision for Nicole. Truly, observing from a distance, it has been a blissful union.

So, it is obvious that Dr Dre had wanted to be with Nicole for so long. He was confident of making Nicole, his wife. Dr Dre was relentless of professing his love until they got married in 1996. It was the same year that Dr Dre had a major breakthrough in his career; he left Death Row to kick-start his own label, Aftermath Entertainment.

To run this new venture effectively, he leveraged on his wealth of experience working with various record labels including Kru-Cut Records, Priority Records, Ruthless Records, and Death Row subsequently.

Thus, they started dating in the early 90s, got married in 1996, and had their first child together, Truice Young in 1997, and then three other kids followed Marcel, Curtis, and La Tanya Daniele. Originally, it seemed they were having a blissful life. They took vacations in some tourist attraction centers in the world including the Bahamas and Hawaii. She had a fourth son, Andre Young Jr., who died from drug abuse in 2008.

They are living a blissful marital life with their kids, and there is no speculation that they will be divorcing anytime soon. Nicole is very proud of her family, and she does everything within her power to protect it. She is a loving wife to the husband and caring mother to her kids. She proudly supports her husband in his projects and career. There is no controversy whatsoever.

But prior to their marriage, Dr Dre has gotten into controversy with his former spouse, Toussaint who claimed that the record producer and hip-hop mogul abused her verbally and physically several times, even during their dating days. Dr Dre and Nicole Threatt have been silent about these accusations regardless of the media stunt it generated.


Nicole was a successful attorney for some years. However, she gave up her career after tying the knot with Dr. Dre and gave her husband maximum support. Today, she is a renowned and highly sought-after showbiz personality and socialite. His husband was very famous for his explicit rap lyrics during the late 80s and early 90s, which dealt mostly with extreme policing and racial discrimination.

Been married to the record producer, rapper, and one of the biggest names in the world of hip-hop for over two decades now, Nicole has maintained a private and low-key lifestyle. She has refused to give her life and family any media fanfare and remained in solitude, and this makes her one-of-a-kind.
