The duo will no doubt be negotiating how to split their assets as they work out how to finalize their divorce.
It was reported on Friday that they will have to split $60 million in real estate, including a $2.25 million mansion in Pacific Palisades, a $50 million Brentwood estate and the profit from their recently sold $4.5 million Woodland Hills mansion.
Forbes recently pegged Dre’s wealth at $800 million.
In 2014, the music company that Dre established, Beats, was sold to Apple for $3 billion, which lead to him being hailed as the ‘first billionaire in hip-hop’.
The same year, the rapper purchased a $40 million home in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles in from its previous owners, NFL player Tom Brady and supermodel Gisele Bundchen.

In 2001, it was reported that Dre earned a total of about $52 million from selling part of his share of Aftermath Entertainment to Interscope Records, as well as producing the megahit Family Affair by Mary J. Blige.
Dre has had a complicated personal life and has six children; four sons and two daughters, by five different women.
He was just 16 when he and his then-15-year-old girlfriend Cassandra Joy Green had their first child together, a son named Curtis. Dre did not meet his son until 20 years later, according to multiple reports.
Then in 1983, Dre welcomed a daughter named La Tanya Danielle Young with Lisa Johnson.
His son Andre Young Jr., tragically died aged 20 in 2008 after a reported drug overdose. He had been the subject of a paternity dispute in 1990 when his mother, Jenita Porter, filed a lawsuit seeking $5,000 of child support per month.
Dre also has a son named Marcel with the singer Michel’le, who was born in 1988.
In 2015, Dre was forced to issue a public apology after many women came forward to accuse him of abuse, including his ex Michel’le, ’90s female rapper Tairrie B, and hip-hop journalist Dee Barnes.
