ONE of Dr Dre’s daughters claims she is living out of her car — despite begging for help from her dad, who is worth around $820million — while his youngest is a film school student in California.

LaTanya Young, a single mother of four who works for food delivery services and in a warehouse, said she has not received money from her famous dad in 18 months.

Meanwhile, Dre’s younger daughter Truly Young is a film student who’s very active on social media, with her latest Instagram post claiming she “can’t be deleted.”

LaTanya told The Daily Mail that she has not seen her father in 18 years and has to go through his team when she needs to contact him.

Now, LaTanya claims she is living out of a rental car to try to make ends meet.

Young’s mother, Lisa Johnson, split from Dr Dre – whose real name is Andre Romelle Young – when LaTanya was just five years old.

  • DR DADDY’S ‘SECRET KIDS’

    Bombshell claims that Dr Dre’s daughter is homeless and living in her car has put his troubled family life into sharp focus.

    When Lisa is asked how many children she has with the Hip Hop star in the clip, she replies, “I have three daughters.”

    The shocked interviewer says: “Three daughters!? How come you only talk about one daughter?” Lisa responds: “I’m not sure why but in due time you will get that real story.”
