Dr. Dre's Wife of 22 Years Was Once Married to a Former NBA Star

Before the world of social media such as Email, Twitter or Instagram, legendary music producer Dr. Dre penned down a lovely message to the woman he loved, Nicole Threatt.

As private as she was, Threatt became a celebrity after she found herself in a love triangle between two famous people, Sedale Threatt and Andre Young.

THE LOVE THAT COULDN'T STAND THE TEST OF TIME

Young Nicole was married to basketballer, Sedale Threatt in 1992 for only three years before the two decided to go their separate ways in 1995. 

Just like the world of every athlete, Sedale was wanted by many female fans and groupies who didn't care for his marriage and his wife who had not only had enough at the time but also fallen for someone else and couldn't take it anymore.

So, she decided to leave the marriage, and move on to another love which she already found. 

Just four months after dating, the couple tied the knot in May 1996.  

 

THE LOVE THAT DID

Although Nicole and Sedale's marriage was already in turmoil, most believed that the handwritten love message written by Dr. Dre to Threatt in 1995 had a massive impact on why the couple called it quit.

The duo met in 1995 when Nicole was still in a relationship with her ex-husband and immediately hit it off. However, Andre penned a romantic letter to Threatt but was also swift to diss her basketballer husband in the message saying

"Nicole, Hopefully you doing well and you realized you need to quit fu*king with Sedale and come home to your doctor. I will take care of you baby girl."
