12 Rappers That Got Divorced

It’s no secret that many stars in Hollywood have to make several attempts at a happily ever after before they strike gold. This scenario beams true for several rappers who at one point made the weighty decision to file for divorce. Whether due to infidelity, money issues or just the pressures of the music industry; more than a few MCs have called it quits on their marriages.

While some of these splits are more highly publicized, some of them occurred so long ago that many have forgotten the divorces ever happened. Actually, Will Smith¬†was married one before Jada Pinkett Smith. In 1992, Will wedded Sheree Fletcher who is the mother of Smith’s oldest son, Trey. Rev Run also had a former spouse before his current wife, Justine. In the 1980s, Rev tied the knot with Valerie Vaughn and had his three oldest children (Vanessa, Angela and Jojo Simmons).

While those splits are often passed over, more recent break-ups like Dr. Dre‘s expensive split from his wife Nicole Young in 2021 have been big news. The super producer paid his former spouse a $100 million divorce settlement. Jeezy‘s split from television show host Jeannie Mai made headlines in 2023. What at first seemed like an amicable parting of ways, has turned into an ugly divorce battle over the custody of their 2-year-old daughter Monaco.

Nobody wins when the family feuds. However, sometimes, it’s the only option.
