His parents were engaged but never married

His parents Michel'le Denise Toussant, R&B singer, and Dr. Dre, first met at World Class Wreckin Cru

They had a lead singer Mona Lisa, but she could not make it, due to which Michel'le was called to fill her space in the vocal part for the song "Turn Off the Lights."

Dre eventually started calling her on her phone, and after certain weeks of conversation, he finally asked her out, and the couple started dating. 

At the time of dating, Dre was already a father of five children, which he had from his previous relationship. 

They later got engaged but could not make it to the marriage.

The reason behind their split

After few years of dating, the couple gave birth to their son Marcel

According to Michel'le, their relationship became more strained after the birth of their child as she could not follow him anymore, which became more disrespectful when she found that there was someone else in her absence. 

He became physically abusive. She was being punched in the face, leading to five black eyes, being dragged on the floor, and even shot. 

She luckily survived as he missed the shot with a few inches. Despite his abusive behavior, she tried to remain with him even after several breakups and patch-ups. 

Slowly it became intolerable for her to handle his infidelities and regular beatings. 

They split in 1996 after she found that he was engaged to another woman.

Too many half-siblings from his father's relationships with different women

His elder half-sister is La Tanya Danielle Young from his father's relationship with Clara Moroni

His other half-brother Andre Young Jr. who sadly passed away in 2008 after a d*ug overdose was born to his father with his girlfriend, Jenita Porter

His two half-siblings, brother Truice Young and sister Truly Young, were born to his father with his ex-wife Nicole Young.

His youngest half-sister is Tyra Young, whose mother's name is not revealed. 

He also has another half-sister Bailei Knight born to his mother with her ex-husband Suge Knight.
