Interscope Mogul to Scope Out Divorce Lawyer

3/12/2009 7:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jimmy IoveneGolddigger Alert!! -- The incredibly rich music mogul who built Interscope Records -- and "discovered" Eminem -- is about to be single.

Jimmy Iovine's wife filed for divorce yesterday in L.A. County Superior Court. Jimmy has worked with legends like U2, Springsteen and Tom Petty.

Vicky Iovine, a former Playboy model, cited irreconcilable differences. The two were married for nearly 24 years and have 4 kids together -- including 2 minors.

Jimmy's fortune is estimated to be in the hundreds of millions. His wife is asking for attorneys fees and an undetermined amount of spousal support.

PS -- Yesterday was also Jimmy's birthday.

ps... Dr. Dre did not discover Eminem, an intern did, took it to Jimmy and they decided to give Em to Dre so he could make a comeback since his 92 The Chronic, and of course Em gets to work with great producer.

Vicki Iovine got me through some pretty rough early-baby years with her fantastic books...I wish her nothing but happiness and large child support payments!

Really?!? Gold digger? 24 years is FAR from gold digger status. Here is your tag line... Pervy Old Man loses best thing to happen to him. TMZ quit acting like a 12 year old boy.

I disagree with the statement that she is a golddigger. They were married 24 years and have four children. Although no one knows what happens in people's private lives, in all of her books, she only wrote lovingly of her husband and it sounded like she often tried to find ways to make their marriage strong.

Actually an intern did not discover Em, but close. A little rich white boy from Long Island named 3H discovered Em and brought him to Dre and Jimmy.

On a lighter note, Jimmy's house backs up to the Playboy mansion, so I'm sure he won't have trouble finding another broad. Unless Nicole isn't finished with him.
