LaTanya Young, the daughter of icon, Dr. Dre has been struggling financially, despite having a millionaire for a father. Recently, she announced a shocker, which ignited a series of reactions from social media users.

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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

Since the fundraiser was started, Young has received a ton of support, as several individuals have contributed. So far, she has raised $2,144 on her GoFundMe, and will probably receive more.
