Rapper,Dr Dre’s daughter,LaTanya Young revealed she is homeless and living out of a rental car.
This is really shocking since the hiphop legend is worth $800 million and has been ordered to pay ex-wife,Nicole Young $300,000 a month in spousal support.
LaTanya who has four children was five years old when her parents divorced and according to her ,her dad stopped giving her any money 18 months ago because she talked to the press.
Another shocking thing is that she has not been in direct communication with the music producer for years ,that its through his lawyer.
She said her kids stays with a friend and she has been living out of her car while working as a delivery driver for DoorDash and Uber Eats.
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.’
‘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.’
‘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.
‘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.
‘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.’
‘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 is Dre’s eldest daughter from his marriage with Lisa Johnson.
Though it’s sad that she has not been able to see and talk to her dad for years,she admitted he was helping her all those years.
We don’t know the full story but she needs to stop talking to the press about this. LaTanya ,what happened to the allowance you have been getting all those years?You are a grown woman ,you need to start taking care of your kids and stop waiting on daddy. That’s my two cents!
