Dr.Dre’s estranged daughter LaTanya Young has been living out of her car while her father pays $300,000 monthly to his ex-wife Nicole Yong in spousal support.
- LaTanya Young, Dr. Dre’s eldest daughter, revealed she has been homeless.
- The single mom-of-four says she stopped receiving help from her dad in January 2020.
- Young also claims her children have never seen their grandfather in real life, as she hasn’t seen him in 18 years and communicates with him only through his team.
LaTanya Young, 38, has just revealed she is homeless. Dr. Dre’s eldest daughter from Lisa Johnson, who works as a delivery driver for DoorDash and Uber Eats, says she cannot afford a California apartment and is living inside a rental car.
What is more, the mom-of-four claims she has repeatedly asked her father for help. However, even though Dre’s net worth is estimated at $820 million, his daughter says she has not received anything from him in the last 18 months.
Moreover, LaTanya states she hasn’t seen her dad in 18 years, and she can only communicate with him through his team. The single mom told Daily Mail:
“I’ve been working in a warehouse and doing Uber Eats and DoorDash. My kids are staying with friends – they are not living in the car, it’s just me. I’m taking odd jobs just to make it now – I got paid $15 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 fears she might lose the car she has been living in as well.
“The car is a pretty penny. It’s an SUV that costs $2,300 for three weeks and I only paid for one week. Sooner or later they are going to take the car.”
About a month ago, Young moved with her children from Nevada to California. She hoped The Golden State would provide a better opportunity for her family, as “there was no work in Nevada.” LaTanya explained:
“The wage is higher in California – there was no work in Nevada. There weren’t enough jobs. I have friends and family that will let us come back and forth but the majority of the time I’m living out of my car.”
Dr. Dre’s lawyer has told his daughter that she will not receive any money since she has spoken about her dad to the press in the past.
However, what pains LaTanya the most is that her children have never met their grandfather in real life. She said:
“I’m homeless and I’ve been reaching out to my dad for help. His lawyer has said that my dad doesn’t want to help me because I’ve spoken about him in the press. 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. ‘My kids are old enough to know who he is. They are in shock that he doesn’t want anything to do with them.”
Back in January, Dr. Dre, real name Andre Romelle Young, was rushed to a hospital with a brain aneurysm. When LaTanya tried to find out whether her father was in a stable condition, she was “like pulling teeth just to know if he was alright.”
The mom-of-four admits she has been receiving help from her dad in the past, but it ended in January 2020.
“People label me as a millionaire’s daughter so they don’t understand why I’m working. It makes me want to crawl under a rock. He used to help with our rent and gave an allowance but he told us he wouldn’t do anything anymore. I’m out on the streets.
I asked him for help and I haven’t got a response back from his lawyer. I’m hearing about mistresses that he’s bought houses for. It’s a messy situation.”
The moment LaTanya learned about the $300,000 her dad pays his ex-wife Nicole Young every month in spousal support, she felt “embarrassed.”
“I just heard that he has to pay $300k a month for spousal support – it’s embarrassing because people are looking at me wondering: Why? What Nicole has got is what my mom should have got.
I honestly wrote a proposal and asked him if he could get a home for me and my sister and my kids. He was supposed to put us through college and pay for our health insurance and he never did that.
My mom felt like he never upheld his end of the bargain. I commend Nicole in a way – she did what she had to do.”
