Amid claims she hasn’t received a dime from her wealthy father in 18 months, Dr. Dre’s estranged daughter has revealed she is homeless and has been living out of her car.
Recall that the hip hop mogul was ordered to pay his ex-wife Nicole Young $300,000 a month in spousal support.
LaTanya Young, 38, 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 Victorville, California, and is living in a rental vehicle.
LaTanya is Dr. Dre’s daughter by Lisa Johnson, 53. The couple split when LaTanya was five years old.
The single mother-of-four told DailyMail.com that she has repeatedly asked her producer dad, who is said to be worth $800million, for financial help but she has not received a dime in 18 months.
LaTanya claimed that she’s not seen her famous father for 18 years and doesn’t even have his cell phone number. But she admitted that she has to communicate with him through his team.
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.
‘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,’ she added.
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.
