The Untold Truth about Dr Dre’s Daughter La Tanya Danielle Young


La Tanya Young Danielle is an American personality, famously known for being one of the three daughters of Dr Dre, who is an acclaimed celebrity in the world of hip hop music, and boasts of founding Death Row Records, Aftermath Entertainment, and Beats Electronics.

Age, Early Life, and Education Background

La Tanya Young Danielle was born under the Capricorn zodiac sign in Memorial Hospital of Gardena, California, on 19 January 1983, which makes her 39 years old as of 2022. She was born to her mother Lisa Jackson, and her then partner, the accomplished record producer, entrepreneur and singer Andre Romelle Young known professionally as Dr Dre; she was raised in her birth-town alongside her siblings Curtis and Marcel Young, but seemingly had a rough childhood since her parents separated when she was barely five years old – she disclosed during an interview that after her parent’s separation, she had to go through her father’s security and assistants just to speak to him.

Young has four half-siblings Bailei Knight, Andre Young Jr, Truly Young, and Tyra Young from her paternal side, and her grandparents are Theodore Young and Verna Young.

La Tanya attended Chatsworth High before she was enrolled to study an administrative assistant medical course at the High Desert Medical College. According to her Facebook profile, she also went to the University of Phoenix to study Business Management, and graduated in 2019.

Interesting Facts

Young is Dr Dre’s and Lisa Johnson’s eldest daughter.

Her father was abusive towards her mother, and allegedly beat her even when she was expectant, which eventually led to their divorce.


According to her, she has not met her father face-to-face for more than a decade and a half now.

Lisa Johnson was fifteen years old when La Tanya was born to her, and her father was 17.


Despite being a daughter of a multi-millionaire, La Tanya reveals that she has taken a number of odd jobs to make a living, including working for several delivery firms such as DoorDash and Uber Eats. According to her, ‘People label me as a millionaire’s daughter, so they don’t understand why I’m working. It makes me want to crawl under a rock.’ She works as an assembler at a warehouse, and sources reveal that she earns around $15 per hour.

Personal life, Rumors, and Controversies

Danielle has kept her romantic life details under the wraps, and it’s currently unclear whether she is dating anyone. However, it’s well-known that she’s the mother of four children, two boys, D’Andre Young (born in 2013) and Jason III Young (born in 2018) and two daughters Tatiyana (currently 16 years old) and Rhiana Young, who is now 13. She recently left California to settle in Nevada, since the latter has higher pay and more bjo availability.

La Tanya is seemingly avoiding social media, and isn’t active on any platform. Nonetheless, her father and most of her siblings are active on several social media platforms, including Instagram and Facebook.


Rumors and Controversies

Is Tanya Young Homeless?

Dr Dre suffered a controversy in August 2021 when his daughter revealed that she was homeless, broke, and that she was living out of a rented SUV. She disclosed that she has been trying to seek financial assistance from her father for the last two years, but he’s refused to support her since she allegedly spoke ill about him in the past.

La Tanya’s Relationship with Her Father, Dr Dre

La Tanya recently opened up about her estranged relationship with her father. She told The Daily Mail that despite the fact that she struggles financially, she wants nothing but to have a relationship with him. She said ‘Money is not what I want, I feel better doing it on my own’ and further revealed that she recently applied for a driving job at FedEX international shipping firm.

She added that her father ‘…never set her up to be able to not need him. He never paid for college, he never did anything to help her and her sisters get along’ disclosing that all she needed was closure. She also said that her father has never met her four children, who just like him, love music very much.

Young revealed to The Daily Mail that she had suspicions that her stepmother, Nicole was purposely keeping her and her father apart, and added that she thought that things between her and her father would change after Nicole filed for divorce against him and recalled that, ‘I went to the gate and our names weren’t on the list. The security lady still let us in because she knew us.


But Nicole turned into Cruella de Vil. She asked us what we were doing there, said that he was sleeping, and threatened to call the police on us.’ She was sixteen years old then. She publicly says that she believes that her father gave up on her and that she does not know why yet.

Body Measurements

La Tanya is of Afro-American ethnicity and has black hair and dark-brown eyes. She stands 5ft 9ins (1.75m) tall and weighs about 127lbs (57kg).

Net Worth

Danielle has disclosed very little regarding her career and the source of her earnings, so her net worth is currently estimated at less than $200,000.

However, her father is worth an estimated astounding $800 million as of 2022 and has earned the impressive sum from his multifaceted career in the showbiz industry. He is also the co-founder of the electronic firm, Beats By Dre, which was acquired by Apple Inc. for $3 billion in 2014.
