LaTanya Young, the eldest daughter of producer superstar Dr Dre, has started a GoFundMe for her and her four children.
Young was reportedly cut off by Dre, financially, earlier this year, causing the single mother to work for DoorDash and live out of her car.
“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,” the GoFundMe description reads.
“I think GoFundMe campaigns are for people in desperate situations and I’m in a desperate situation,” Young told the Daily Mail. “Some people were in awe of what I am going through and asked if I had a GoFundMe. I really don’t want to accept any handouts but I appreciate anything that is offered. I have worked all my life and I know how to work for money but I’m in a difficult place right now. I believe in investing in your kids. That’s what I want to do for my kids so they are never in a position like I am right now.”
“I know my dad is a busy man but I hope he will see it and reach back out to me on a father-daughter level,” Young adds. “If I needed him, I’d have to go to the studio and get bombarded and talked to by his security. I would have to go through his accountant or his right-hand man, I would never know whether he got my messages. I have never had a direct line to him.”
Young adds that she has not seen Dre in over 18 years and that her four children have never met their grandfather. Young is one of three daughters that Dre had with Lisa Johnson between 1983 and 1988.
