Her first marriage to Theodore Young was full of physical and verbal abuse, which later led to divorce. 

Curtis also physically and verbally abused her throughout their marriage. 

Two of his three children are no more in this world

Curtis and Verna had three children together, two sons Jerome and Tyree, and a daughter Shameka.  

His son Jerome died of pneumonia while he was an infant. His son Tyree got killed in 1989 at 21.

He was tragically killed in a gang fight. According to Verna, Tyree was her funny person who would make her laugh during her lows.  

After the death of her beloved son, Shameka filled his space, making her laugh like her late brother. 

Tyree was also close to his half-brother, Dr. Dre. Pouring his eternal pain in music, he dedicated the song called “The Message” in 2001.

Following her separation from Curtis, she later remarried Warren Griffin Sr., father of rapper Warren G, and became his step-mom.

Verna is currently relishing a wonderful life 

After enduring physical, verbal, and mental sufferings, Verna is currently relishing a wonderful life provided by her celebrity son. 

As a single mom, Verna worked full-time to make ends meet. 

She would move through central L.A. with her kids to find a safe place as the area she lived in was crime-ridden. 

But, she no longer had to suffer after her son rose to fame. He asked her to quit her job and live a peaceful life.

Family drama

Dr. Dre’s life has revolved around a family drama. He regularly makes headlines for his past relationships, his infidelities, his abusive behavior, etc. 

He has a complicated relationship with his family members. Recently his father Theodore Young confronted that he has no relationship with his celebrity son as he does not give a damn about him. 

He barely remembers when he last spoke to his son. In December 2020, Dr. Dre’s daughter La Tanya Danielle Young came forward publicly, exposing her father. 

La Tanya is the oldest daughter of Dr. Dre with his ex-girlfriend, Lisa Johnson.

She said that she had not seen her dad in 17 years and thought he had given up on her.
