DrDre is currently in the middle of one of the messiest divorces in hip hop history—but apparently his relationship with his oldest daughter is just as drama-filled. In a recent interview, LaTanya Young shockingly revealed that she hasn’t seen her father Dr. Dre in 17 years, in fact, she doesn’t even have his phone number.
In an interview with @DailyMail, LaTanya Young, 37, opened up about the seriously estranged relationship she has with her father, who she says she hasn’t seen in almost 20 years. LaTanya says that despite their practically non-existent relationship, she still hopes that they can come together and repair things one day. She also insisted that she doesn’t want anything from him except a father-daughter relationship, saying “Money is not what I want, I feel better doing it on my own.” LaTanya further stated that she feels “displaced” by not seeing Dr. Dre, “I really just want to have closure. I just want to be able to spend time with my father.”
Although Dr. Dre is estimated to be worth $800 million, LaTanya confirmed that she recently applied for a job as a FedEx driver in order to support her four children and fund her way through nursing school. Dre split with LaTanya’s mother, Lisa Johnson (who has two other children with him) when LaTanya was five years old. Her hope is that now that he’s divorcing Nicole Young, he will finally come around and meet his grandchildren. “I thought that after Nicole was out of the family, things would be better. I thought that my dad would come around. I would like him to make me feel like a daughter,” LaTanya said. #video
