The “Chronic” rapper Dr. Dre who is also a music producer, and designer of the Beats by Dre headphones, is well-known throughout the world. The rapper known for the song “Chronic” is also a father in addition to being the owner of a sizable fortune. Dr. Dre’s estimated net worth is close to $800 million.

However, Dr. Dre, real name Andre Young, has recently been dealing with family troubles, and the most recent one is even more tragic than the last one. The infamous producer from the influential hip-hop group N.W.A and co-founder of Beats By Dre reportedly has a daughter who is homeless and living in a car.

LaTanya Young, 38, Dr. Dre’s eldest daughter from Lisa Johnson, has just revealed she is homeless. While asking her father for financial assistance, she has been residing in a rented SUV as she opened up to in a publication about her financial troubles.

LaTanya also claims that she hasn’t spoken to Dr. Dre in 18 years and that she can only reach him through his legal team. The single mother of four recently moved out of Nevada with her children. LaTanya currently lives in California and works for food delivery services. She is also undertaking odd jobs at a warehouse to sustain herself.

Despite that she hasn’t seen her father for the last 18 years, LaTanya decided to name one of her kids after her father, who she named D’Andre, her eight-year-old firstborn.

Regarding her financial crisis, LaTanya Young 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. 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 also discussed her choice to leave Nevada and her concern over losing the rental car:

The car is a pretty penny. 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.”

“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,” she said.
