Dr. Dre‘s estranged daughter says she had to take a job at FedEx to pay her bills because the music mogul hasn’t been in contact with her for 17 years.
Daily Mail spoke to Dre’s 37-year-old daughter LaTanya Young about the relationship with her father. The music producer broke up with LaTanya’s mother Lisa Johnson when she was only 5 years old.
LaTanya, who wants to spend time with her dad, says Dre hasn’t been in touch for almost two decades. She said, “money is not what I want, I feel better doing it on my own.”
She says Dre hasn’t offered her financial support. La Tanya told the outlet she has resorted to odd jobs and applying to become a FedEx driver.
Dre’s daughter said, “I really just want to have closure. I just want to be able to spend time with my father.” She says her father has never met her children.
She told Daily Mail after Dre’s divorce she felt her father would come around. LaTanya said, “I thought that after Nicole was out of the family, things would be better. I thought my dad would come around. I would like him to make me feel like a daughter.”
Dre has yet to comment on LaTanya’s interview.
As The Blast previously reported, Dre is in the middle of a nasty divorce from his wife Nicole Young. Nicole filed a petition in Los Angeles Superior Court to terminate her marriage after 24 years of marriage. In the court documents, Nicole asked the court to award her temporary spousal support until the outcome of the divorce.
She asked the judge to award her $2 million a month to cover her expenses. The monthly expenses include $10k for laundry and cleaning, $135k for clothes, $60k on tuition and living expenses, $900k for entertainment, $125k for charitable contributions, and $100k for a mortgage.
Nicole said they did not have a valid prenuptial agreement. She admitted they signed one before they got hitched. However, she claimed the music mogul tore up the paperwork years into their union.
Dre fired back denying he ever tore up their agreement. He said Nicole wasn’t telling the truth when claiming he ripped it up in front of her.
He objected to Nicole’s $2 million a month support request. Dre claimed he already pays for a majority of his bills.
The divorce has been messy since the start. Nicole fired off subpoenas to women she believes had an affair with Dre during their 24 years together.
The three women are songwriter Jillian Speer, Crystal Sierra aka Crystal Rodgers, and Kili Anderson. She demanded they sit for depositions and answer questions about their alleged affairs with Dre.
The women objected to the subpoenas and refused to answer any questions on the matter. Nicole has not been able to depose the ladies but she was able to grill Dre under oath recently.
