Dr. Dreís oldest daughter reveals that she is homeless and living out of her car.
In an interview with the Daily Mail, LaTanya Young, 38, said she hasnít received money from her famous father in 18 months despite repeatedly asking him for help.
The single mother of four, who works for DoorDash and Uber Eats as a delivery driver and as an assembler at a warehouse, moved to California for work and is currently living in a rental vehicle.
ďIím taking odd jobs just to make it nowĖI got paid $15 an hour as an assembler at the warehouse,Ē said LaTanya. ďIím trying to keep my head above water. Iíve been in debt for a while.Ē
She fears losing her rental car because she canít afford the payments. ďItís an SUV that costs $2,300 for three weeks and I only paid for one week,Ē she said. ďSooner or later they are going to take the car.Ē
LaTanya is Dreís daughter with Lisa Johnson. The two split when LaTanya was 5 years old. She claims she hasnít seen her father in 18 years and has to communicate with him through his team.
Dre, who is said to be worth $800 million, has given LaTanya money in the past, but reportedly stopped paying in January 2020. ďHis lawyer has said that my dad doesnít want to help me because Iíve spoken about him in the press,Ē she said, adding, ďI feel like Iím damned if I do, Iím damned if I donít.Ē
She is hoping to reconnect with the Beats mogul, who has never met his grandchildren. ďIím just trying to communicate with him and see if he wants to talk to his grandkids,Ē she said. ďMy kids are old enough to know who he is. They are in shock that he doesnít want anything to do with them.Ē
Last month, Dre was ordered to pay his ex-wife Nicole Young nearly $300,000 a month in spousal support as part of their divorce settlement. The couple was married for 24 years and share two adult children, son Truice, 24, and daughter Truly, 20.
LaTanya feels Dre should have financially supported her family as well. ďWhat Nicole has got is what my mom should have got,Ē she said. ďMy mom felt like he never upheld his end of the bargain. I commend Nicole in a wayĖshe did what she had to do.Ē
