The 5-foot-8-feet beauty is very loving and protective towards her family. She is a good wife who supports Dr. Dre in his projects and helps manage them when she gets the time.
Her birth date is January 1, marking the zodiac sign of Capricorn.
Capricorn women are hustlers, meaning they have a thirst to succeed—be it in career or family. No wonder she is so good at managing her husband’s significant projects and maintaining a happy environment for her family amidst the public’s curiosity and interference.
Along with being a good wife, she is also a perfect mother who shares the love for her own as well as the step-children.
