Latanya Young says she has no direct contact with her father as he does not communicate with her directly she claims .
Now, Latanya Young is turning to Go-Fund Me to raise enough money to buy a place for her along with her children to stay; due to Dr. Dre allegedly refusing to help his daughter get off the streets.

“This fundraiser is to help Latanya and her four kids find a safe and stable home,” the description reads. “She is currently working at DoorDash to keep afloat and these funds will be deeply appreciated. Thank you so much.”
In an interview with the Daily Mail, Young said she was living out of a rented SUV while her four kids live with friends.
“My kids are staying with friends—they are not living in the car, it’s just me,” she explained. “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.”
Young also admitted the only communication she’s had with her father in the past 18 years has been through his team. To top things off, she said she hasn’t received a dime from Dre since January 2020. The mogul used to help support her and her children financially but allegedly cut her off last year.
“It’s embarrassing because people are looking at me wondering: Why? What Nicole has got is what my mom should have got,” she said, referencing Nicole Young. LaTanya’s mother is Dre’s former partner Lisa Johnson; Nicole has been mired in divorce proceedings that recently led to a ruling for her to receive almost $300K a month in support.
Now, it seems things have taken a turn for the worst, as Young told the Daily Mail that she’s started a $50,000 GoFundMe in hopes of making ends meet. “I know my dad is a busy man,” she said, “but I hope he will see it and reach back out to me on a father-daughter level.”
She added that she believes GoFundMe campaigns are for people in dire circumstances, and that she is indeed “in a desperate situation.”
“I have worked all my life and I know how to work for money but I’m in a difficult place right now,” she said. “I believe in investing in your kids. That’s what I want to do for my kids so they are never in a position like I am right now.”
At the time of publication, 23 donors had amassed $385.
