Fans Are Divided after Millionaire Dr. Dre’s Daughter Starts GoFundMe Due to Being Homeless
American rapper and record producer Dr. Dre is one of the most successful in entertainment. The icon is also a father of seven children but unfortunately lost one of his sons, Andre Young Jr.
In the past months, the sound engineer's second child and first daughter, LaTanya Young, have been in the spotlight due to her candid interviews about her millionaire father.
Recently, Young made the headlines after she opened a GoFundMe account, as a result of her homelessness. According to the GoFundMe page, the mother of four intends to raise fifty thousand dollars, which would help her get back on her feet.
The page also revealed that the fundraiser would enable Young and her kids to find a safe and stable home. According to the page, Young currently works at DoorDash to stay out of debt.
I don't care what nobody say, it's wild as hell that Dr. Dre is paying his ex-wife $200,000-$300,000 a month...but is letting his daughter sleep in her car and his grandchildren stay with strangers...I can't go like that— malcolm miller (@Mackaveli_15) August 15, 2021
The rapper's daughter does not consider accepting handouts. However, she is willing to be grateful for anything offered. Since Young started her campaign, many fans and social media users have aired their thoughts.
A majority think that Dr. Dre is not a good father, as he has refused to aid his daughter financially. An angry Twitter user expressed her feelings about the situation.
I don't know what happened with them, but regardless IMO Dr Dre should help out his daughter with all of his money. That doesn't mean he has to talk to her, but do the right thing she has kids: https://t.co/t3oHdWfPm3— New year, hopeful (@sweetteatime55) August 16, 2021
She noted that she did not care what anyone thought, but Dr. Dre paying his ex-wife $200,000- $300,000 while his daughter slept in a car and his grandkids were given to strangers was wild.
Young began struggling financially in January 2020 after her famous dad cut her off.

Another user said, "I don't know what happened with them, but regardless IMO Dr. Dre should help out his daughter with all of his money. That doesn't mean he has to talk to her but do the right thing, she has kids."
A third respondent tagged the situation as "heartbreaking," A fourth user pointed out that Young was homeless while her dad was close to being a billionaire. The user cared less about Young's age but agreed that the fact that she had a child was paramount.

While others bashed Dr. Dre for his lack of support, others made it known that Young should get a job. A Twitter user noted that she did not want anyone to be homeless, but anyone contributing to the GoFundMe was doing the wrong thing.
Another said Young was a grown woman that made grown decisions in her life. The user believed that the producer's daughter was angry because she was a regular person who had to do things independently.
I’m sorry, I don’t want anyone to be homeless cause I know how that feels but if y’all donating to Dr. Dre’s daughter GoFund Me y’all crazy.😭🌝— HER🦋 (@itstmoneyyy) August 15, 2021
A third respondent wrote, "Dr. Dre's daughter must get a job; she is almost 40 yikes! Go fund her for what?" A fourth user said she was disgusted with the whole situation. However, she also mentioned that at 20, she was already financially supporting her mom.
Young began struggling financially in January 2020 after her famous dad cut her off. She revealed that her dad helped with the rent and gave her an allowance, but it eventually ended.
She's a grown woman that made grown decisions in her life. To me, she's just mad she's a 'regular' person that has to do things on their own now. Not a fan of Dre's personal life but she's lucky he cut her off last year and not before. #IMO— Kae Dee 😷 (@KaeDee20_20) August 15, 2021
According to Dr. Dre's lawyer, the millionaire rapper has refused to help his daughter because Young has spoken about him to the press in the past.
The producer's daughter claims that she is saddened chiefly that her kids have never met their famous grandfather.
