Dr. Dre’s oldest daughter says she’s homeless and living out of her car – despite repeated pleas for help to her music mogul father.
LaTanya Young, who works for DoorDash and Uber Eats as a delivery driver, said in a new interview that she hasn’t received money from the Beats founder, who is worth $US1 billion, in a year and a half.
“My kids are staying with friends – they are not living in the car, it’s just me,” Young, who is a single mother-of-four, told the Daily Mail.
“I’m taking odd jobs just to make it now – I got paid $US15 an hour as an assembler at the warehouse. I’m trying to keep my head above water. I’ve been in debt for a while.”
LaTanya is Dre’s daughter with Lisa Johnson, from whom he split when LaTanya was five years old. She claims she hasn’t seen the music producer, born Andre Young, in 18 years and can only communicate with him via his team.
LaTanya said she fears losing her rental car because she can’t afford the payments after moving to California from Las Vegas in search of better work.
“The car is a pretty penny,” she explained. “It’s an SUV that costs $2300 for three weeks and I only paid for one week.
“Sooner or later they are going to take the car.”
LaTanya admitted that Dre has given her money in the past but says he stopped paying in January 2020.
“His lawyer has said that my dad doesn’t want to help me because I’ve spoken about him in the press,” she explained, adding, “I feel like I’m damned if I do, I’m damned if I don’t.
“I’m just trying to communicate with him and see if he wants to talk to his grandkids”, she said.
