In an exclusive with the Daily Mail, Dr. Dre’s 38 yr old daughter shared that she has been living out of her rented SUV and her four children are with friends.
The Daily Mail shared that LaTanya Young works as a delivery driver for DoorDash and Uber Eats and as an assembler at a warehouse but claims that she can’t afford to secure an apartment in California and is living in a rental vehicle.
She told the Daily Mail that even though her dad is worth reportedly $800 million she hasn’t received a dime from him in 18 months.
They have an estranged relationship because Dr. Dre doesn’t like when she goes to blogs with details about their personal life.
LaTayna, mom of Tatiyana, 16, Rhiana, 13, D’Andre, eight, who is named after his grandfather, and Jason III, three, said: ‘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,’ she told DailyMail.com.
‘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 said she now fears she will lose her rental car as she has not been able to make payments.
‘The car is a pretty penny,’ she said. ‘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.’
LaTanya moved with her kids from Nevada to California a month ago in the hope that she would earn better money after her work dried up.
LaTanya has been asking Dr. Dre’s lawyer for help but he has told her that since she has spoken about her father to the press in the past, he will not give her any money.
She added that it pains her that her children have never met their famous grandfather.
‘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.’
When Dr. Dre was rushed to hospital with a brain aneurysm in January, LaTanya found it difficult to even know if her father was in a stable condition.
‘It was like pulling teeth just to know if he was alright in the hospital,’ she said.
She admitted that he has in the past helped her, by paying her rent and giving her an allowance, but that help ended in January 2020.
‘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.
She also shared that her mom should have received what Nicole received, she feels as if he did not uphold his end of the bargain.
