La Tanya Danielle Young is one of three daughters of famous American Rapper Dr. Dre, songwriter, audio engineer, record producer, and entrepreneur. 

La Tanya was born to parents, Andre Romelle Young, and Lisa Johnson.

About La Tanya Danielle Young:

La Tanya is the firstborn child of Dre. She was born in January 1983 in Houston, TX, USA

Her nationality is American, and like her name, she is a mixture of La and Tanya, which means she is a combination of African American origin. 

Her mother was pregnant with her when she was just sixteen years old, but later her mother said that she was fifteen years old when she had her first child, La Tanya

She has two siblings named Latoya and Ashley

And besides her siblings, she also has half-siblings named Andre Young Jr., Bailei Knight, Curtis Young, Tyra Young, Truice Young, Truly Young, and Marcel Young

But La Tanya hasn’t been very close to her dad as she hasn’t met him for more than twenty years. 

Even though she is the daughter of famous rapper, she is living a low-key life, and among the three children from her mother, only she is known.  

About her father:

Dre is the godfather of the American hip-hop industry. He is one of the great figures in the music industry. 

He began his career by being a member of the electric group called World Class Wreckin Cru

He began his career with gangsta rap group N.W.A which led him to the big success of his life. Dre is the co-founder of Death Row Records

He is the CEO of Aftermath Entertainment. He is the one who introduced the G-Funk style of music to the world, and it was insanely hyped in those days. 

Now he is the person behind the success story of most of the rappers and hip-hop artists. Some of them include Eminem, 50 Cent and Snoop Dogg

Her father has won six Grammy awards, and three of the Grammys he won were for his production work. 

He was honored with Best Rap solo Performance, Producer of the year and Best rap Album two times.  

He also won MTV Best Rap video for the song ”Forgot About Dre” and “Keep their Heads Ringin” two times. 

She wants to get along with her father:

La Tanya said despite being the daughter of Dre, and he never did anything to help her get along with him. She is the eldest daughter of him. 

Tanya also said that she hasn’t seen her father for 17 years and is doing some odd jobs to make a living. She only wants a father-daughter relationship with him. 

Being the daughter of superstar Dr. Dre, she is living a low life with struggling financially. Dre split with her mother when La Tanya was five years old

Who is Dr. Dre currently dating?

As per the source, it is said that Dre might be dating Apryl Jones from Love & Hip Hop just after getting divorced from his ex-wife Nicole Young with whom he was married for more than 20 years. 

Apryl and Dre were seen together recently.

Her hip-hop mogul father refused to help her despite her pleas 

Despite being one of the daughters of hip-hop mogul Dr.Dre, La Tanya is not getting any financial support from her father. 

In August 2021, she stated she is homeless, not being able to afford an apartment, and living out of the rental car, and her father has not responded despite her pleas for help.  

La Tanya is a single mom to her four kids and works as a delivery driver for Door Dash, and Uber Eats to make ends meet. 

She went on to say that her four kids have been living with their friends. According to her, she has not seen her celebrity father for above 18 years and had been communicating with him via his teams. 

She has been struggling to pay the debt for a while and is worrying about losing her rental car while her father has been ordered to pay $300,000 a month as spousal support to his ex-wife Nicole Young

Besides working in the Uber Eats and Door Dash, she is also working in a warehouse as an assembler, but still, after doing different odd jobs, it’s hard for her to manage as she is a single mom of four. 

Having thought that there was a higher wage payment in California, she moved along with her four kids to California in the summer of 2021, but that didn’t work out well. 

She claimed not to have her father’s number and tried reaching out to her father through his teams, but his lawyer responded that her father does not want to help her since she has spoken about him in the press. 

She was trying to communicate with him and see if he wanted to talk to his grandkids. La Tanya admitted to getting financial support from her father when he paid her rent and allowances, but all that stopped since January 2020

She is unclear why her father cut off all the contacts with her but seeing her father still buying houses, his mistresses, and going through messy divorces is what bothers her. 

She thinks what Nicole has got is what her mom should have got. 

Even after writing the proposal and asking her father if he could get home to her, her sister, and kids and was supposed to put them through and pay their health insurance, he never did that.

An expensive divorce settlement

Her father finalized his divorce with his ex-wife Nicole Young in December 2021 after 18 months of legal back and forth and settled the divorce on the 28th of December, with Dre keeping most of his assets and income due to the prenuptial agreement. 

According to the source, the settlement got finalized with $100 million. It is reported that Dre has agreed to give 1/5th of his fortune and nearly half of his assets. 

He will be paying $50 million immediately and will pay the remaining in one year, as per TMZ.

As per the documents obtained by TMZ, Young was supposed to move out of the couple’s Malibu beach house by the end of December

She got to keep four vehicles –Rolls Royce, Range Rover, Escalade limousine, and Spyder motorcycle along with her jewelry, cash, and bank accounts she maintained during her marriage, while Dre got to keep his six vehicles and 7 of the properties the couple owned and also got a full right to his master recordings, trademarks, and interests in various partnerships and trusts as well as right to keep all of their Apple stocks.

The love story of Nicole and Dre began in the 1990s while Nicole was still married to her ex-husband Sedale Threatt

She split from her ex-husband in 1996 and soon after began dating Dre. Since they were head over heels in love, they walked down the aisle just after three months of dating. 

The couple welcomed their firstborn son Truice the following year before welcoming their daughter Truly in 2001

When Dre’s exes Michel'le and Lisa Johnson came forward accusing him of physical abuse in 2016, Nicole stood by his side. But then, in June 2020, Nicole filed for divorce. 

She also accused Dre of two counts of physical assaults where he held her at gunpoint and claimed that Dre punched her on her head/face in 1999 and 2000, which led her to cause post-traumatic stress syndrome. 

Still, Dre denied the allegation and claimed it was Nicole’s strategy to get out of the prenup agreement. 

Net Worth:

As of 2021, the net worth of her father is $820 million, and his source of income is Hip-Hop Producer and Entrepreneur.
