Nicole Threatt on Social Media
One of the reasons why there is very little information about Threatt’s past or present endeavors, is due to the lack of any online presence. She does not have any accounts on major social media websites including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. She prefers to keep her life out of the media spotlight, considering the nature of her relationship with Dre and the controversies that have surrounded her husband. This has not prevented her from appearing alongside her husband however, especially during public events.
She has appeared with him in public alongside their children too, and even has pictures with his other children as circulated by the media. Her husband on the other hand is focused solely on his business endeavors. He used to be very active on Facebook in promoting his projects but has since decided to forego social media to focus on business; he has a personal website which is focused on promoting his work. He has not posted on Facebook since 2017, and doesn’t look to be returning any time soon. Despite this lack of online presence, he has earned a huge amount of money, mostly from the sale of his previous businesses to other companies which has earned him huge wealth in a short period of time.
