Nicole Threatt, who also goes by the name Nicole Young, is an American showbiz personality. She currently works as an attorney, but does not belong to a law firm or is not known for her craft – Instead, people recognize her more as a housewife and a socialite.
Threatt was born Nicole Kendra Plotzker on January 1, 1970. She grew up in the entertainment business, being surrounded by famous personalities. Not much is known about her childhood, or her life before she became famous.
Threatt is actually an attorney – However, she has given up her law career and just lives as a housewife and socialite. She might be talented in her own way, but she doesn’t have enough recognition yet to be considered as a legitimate A-List celebrity.
Threatt was introduced to the spotlight when she married former NBA player Sedale Threatt. Their marriage didn’t last too long – Years of fighting and misunderstanding caused the couple to split up. After their marriage, Threatt lived the single life for several years.
In 1996, Threatt married rapper, entrepreneur, and hip hop mogul, Andre Romelle Young, aka Dr. Dre. Dr. Dre was a part of the rap group N.W.A., and has created hit after hit after hit. In the same year that they married, Dr. Dre left Death Row records to build his own label, Aftermath Entertainment.
Dr. Dre and Threatt have been married for 20 long years. You can say that Threatt got really lucky with her second marriage, since Dr. Dre is not only a famous rapper, he is also a record producer, actor, and entrepreneur. He is also the man responsible for building the careers of other famous rappers, like 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, and Eminem.
Threatt and her husband have two children: Son Truth Young, born in 1997, and daughter Truly Young, born in 2001. Paparazzi have consistently spotted the family going on vacations in Hawaii, and the Bahamas. Threatt has never had to work in her life thanks to her husband’s money – But she’s also doing her part in bringing in cash, while living like royalty at the same time.
Dr. Dre placed second on this year’s Forbes magazine Forbes Five. The Forbes Five is a ranking of the five wealthiest personalities in hiphop and R&B. The magazine states that Dr. Dre, Threatt’s husband, has an estimated net worth of a whopping seven hundred million dollars. This has been a big year for Dr. Dre himself – All of this moolah came from his music, his line of Beats by Dre headphones, and the blockbuster movie Straight Outta Compton – An autobiographical film about Dr. Dre and his fellow rappers from N.W.A.
Both Threatt and Dr. Dre live a pretty lavish lifestyle. They have spent an estimated 15.4 million dollars on their ten thousand square foot mansion, which is located in LA’s Sunset Strip. They also have other homes in different parts of the US.
Rumor and Controversy
Is Threatt’s marriage to her rapper husband threatened?
Rumors are abound that Threatt’s marriage to Dr. Dre could come to an end – The rapper supposedly has had an affair with a model named Kili. The rapper responded to these rumors by slashing out at the allegations, and even requested the gossip site to take down the post that claimed he is two-timing his wife. Dr. Dre’s team of lawyers have also asked that same site to remove his images with Kili as not to damage Dr. Dre’s image with these unfounded rumors.
What happened between Dr. Dre and his former wife?
Dr. Dre’s former wife, Miche’le Toussaint, recently released her own autobiography entitled Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge, & Michelle. According to the former singer, who once went by the screen name Miche’le, her relationship with Dr. Dre was abusive, and he would constantly threaten to beat her up. Toussaint decided to air out her marriage life with Dr. Dre after their relationship was omitted from the autobiographical film Straight Outta Compton.
Regarding these recent reports about Dr. Dre beating up his former wife, people have started wondering if Threatt was aware of his violent past, or if she is quietly suffering the same fate as Toussaint did. She is currently making headlines these past couple of days, since reports assume her knowledge over Dr. Dre’s actions against women. There are also reports that Threatt is planning to sue Sony for distributing Toussaint’s own book. However, she has kept silent about this entire issue.
