Dr. Dre’s oldest daughter says she’s homeless and living out of her car — despite pleas to her billionaire father for help.
LaTanya Young, who delivers food for DoorDash and Uber Eats, is living out of her car because the money she earns can’t pay her rent.
LaTanya, 38, has repeatedly pleaded with her father for help, but she hasn’t heard from him in a year and a half.
“My kids are staying with friends — they are not living in the car, it’s just me,” Young told the UK’s Daily Mail.
The single mother of four is Dre’s daughter with Lisa Johnson, who split from the Beats by Dre founder when LaTanya was five years old.
LaTanya’s unemployment benefits expired and she began taking odd jobs to pay for her rental car.
“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 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 $2,300 for three weeks and I only paid for one week.
The rental car agency is looking for the car, but LaTanya stays one step ahead of the repo man.
“Sooner or later they are going to take the car,” she said.
Dre, 56, has four sons, Curtis, Marcel, Truice, and Andre Jr. (deceased), and two daughters, Truly and LaTanya.
