Music mogul Dr. Dre’s daughter LaTanya Young has failed to raise a $1,000 in the days since launching a GoFundMe pleading for help. Earlier this week, LaTanya started a campaign seeking help to pay her bills.
The single mother of four recently revealed she’s homeless and living out of her car. The fundraiser has only received 23 donations for a total of $385.
The 38-year-old says Dre cut her off earlier this year after she spoke out to the press about her situation. She claims her father has never met his grandchildren and hasn’t spoken to her directly in years.
She became emotional when talking about the matter explaining, “My kids are old enough to know who he is. They are in shock he doesn’t want anything to do with them.”
LaTanya is Dre's oldest daughter who he shares with his ex-girlfriend Lisa Johnson. The couple broke up decades ago.
LaTanya claims to desperately need the money to get back on her feet. She claims to have rented a car to work for DoorDash but cannot afford to make the payments.
She revealed the dire situation to Daily Mail. She said, “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.”
“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," she said.
In the past, Dre had paid LaTanya a monthly allowance and covered her rent. All that stopped in early 2020 when she started giving interviews.
At the moment, LaTanya says she can't even afford to pay her cell phone bill. Every time she calls Dre's lawyers she claims they refuse to connect her with the mogul.
As Radar previously reported, Dre is also dealing with his ex-wife Nicole Young as part of their nasty $1 billion divorce. He was recently ordered to pay $300,000 a month in temporary support until the divorce is finalized.
