Dr. Dre’s estranged daughter launched a GoFundMe to find a home for her and her children.
LaTanya Young revealed that she was homeless and living out of a rented SUV while her children stayed with friends during a recent interview with Daily Mail.
“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,” she said.
The GoFundMe page is entitled Help Latanya raise money for housing and shelter and the description reads, “This fundraiser is to help Latanya and her four kids find a safe and stable home. She is currently working at DoorDash to keep afloat and these funds will be deeply appreciated. Thank you so much❤️.”
Young crowdfunded over $6,000 in a week at the time that this article was written.
The comment section of the GoFundMe is filled with uplifting messages for LaTanya. “Best of luck. I hope you get your family back together soon. God Bless! As for Dr. Dre, this is callous. I would think that for the bad optics alone, you’d help your daughter out.”
Young told Daily Mail that she hasn’t spoken to her father in 18 years. “I’m homeless, and I’ve been reaching out to my dad for help,” she shared. “His lawyer has said that my dad doesn’t want to help me because I’ve spoken about him in the press. I feel like I’m damned if I do, I’m damned if I don’t.”
