Superstar rapper Dr. Dre whose real name is Andre Young, welcomed nine children with 6 different women, including a daughter he has not publicly acknowledged.
The founder and CEO of Beats by Dre is not short of heirs as he has welcomed nine kids throughout the years from various relationships. Although some of the kids enjoy being in the spotlight, others tend to keep a low profile and keep their matters private.
Dr. Dre has been blessed with four sons and five daughters. Curtis is the rapper's first son, and he had him with his then-girlfriend Cassandra Joy Greene when they were both teenagers.
DR. DRE'S CHILDREN
The rapper's first son is following in his footsteps and has released multiple albums and mixtapes. Curtis is married and shares two sons with his wife.
Tyra Young is the rapper's daughter and third child from an unidentified woman. He had her during his relationship with Lisa Johnson; nothing is known about Tyra as she doesn't seem to have any social media accounts.
LaToya Young is Dre's fourth child born to him and his ex Lisa Johnson, and she is one of their two "secret daughters." Just like Tyra, not much is known about her.
Truice and Truly Young are the rapper's youngest kids, whom he welcomed with his ex-wife Nicole Young.
Ashley Young is Dr. Dre's fifth child, also from Lisa Johnson, and like her siblings, she has kept a low profile. Dre has not publicly acknowledged her as his child.
Dr. Dre had his sixth child, Andre Young Jr, with Jenita Potter. Unfortunately, Andre Jr passed away at the age of 20 due to an overdose of heroin and morphine.
Marcel Young is Dre's seventh child, whom he welcomed with his then-girlfriend, singer Michel'le. Michel'le likes to keep her personal life and that of her son private regardless of her music career.
Truice and Truly Young are the rapper's youngest kids, whom he welcomed with his ex-wife Nicole Young. The kids seem to live an eventful life and are very active on social media.
With a large brood comes a sizable amount of friction. In recent times, the relationship between Dr. Dre and his oldest daughter LaTanya Young has left many questioning Dre's parenting.
LaTanya, Dre's second child, doesn't seem to be getting any attention from her father despite many failed attempts to reach out. The 38-year-old revealed that she hadn't spoken to her father in 17 years, and he never paid her college tuition funds.
LaTanya once talked about rekindling a father/daughter relationship with him even though she's currently facing debt issues, living out of her SUV, and works odd jobs.
She admits to just wanting a normal relationship with her dad and claimed that she felt his then-wife Nicole Young was the cause of their strained relationship.
NICOLE AND DR. DRE
Nicole filed for a divorce in 2020 on the grounds of irreconcilable differences, and she also claimed he physically abused her. Although he denied it, Nicole said he lied, and he was ordered to pay Nicole $3.5 million yearly as spousal support.
Following the divorce news, rapper 50 Cents took to his Instagram to share a post about the divorce issue where he called Nicole an offensive word. Her daughter, Truly, took offense to the post and responded with harsh expletives.
