Hip-hop producer Dr Dre's wife, Nicole Young, has filed for divorce after 24 years of marriage.
The rapper is reportedly expected to lose millions as he and Nicole did not sign any prenup, which means they will split assets in half.
According to TMZ sources close to Nicole, she is demanding $400 million of Dre's nett worth, which is estimated to be $800 million.
She is also seeking spousal support. The two have two adult children together — a son named Truice and a daughter named Truly.
Nicole reportedly cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the separation.
SAHipHopMag reports that over the years, the Forgot About Dre hitmaker has been accused by various women of abuse.
No case has ever made major headlines but he has gained a spotlight for being a physically abusive man, the publication said.

"I believe in karma. It might not come today or tomorrow but trust me it will. Dr Dre abused so many women in his lifetime, now his wife is divorcing him and about to take his money."
"Dr Dre not signing a prenup shows he fully and wholeheartedly believed in love and forgotten about 'nothing last forever' when it comes to women, especially where money is involved."
