More of Dr. Dre’s personal family business continues to make headlines, as he divorces his estranged wife Nicole Young.
During an interview with the New York Post’s Page Six, Dr. Dre’s 73-year-old father talked about his relationship – or lack thereof – with his own son. According to Theodore, he cannot even remember the last time he has spoken to his own son.
“I haven’t seen Andre since his grandfather died and I can’t even remember when that was,” Theodore Young told the New York Post.
Theodore’s relationship with his world-famous son is complicated. Dre’s mom Verna split with Theodore, shortly after Dre was born over abuse allegations, which his father denied. As a result, Dr. Dre was raised by his grandmother. His relationship with his father is non-existent.
“We have no relationship. My other sons love me. They tell me they love me. But coming from where I come from, most young men like Andre who have a big success don’t give a damn about their dad,” Theodore Young said.
Dr. Dre’s relationship with other family members is just as complicated, according to published reports.
In early December, Dr. Dre’s eldest daughter LaTanya Young came forward to reveal she has not heard from her father in 17 years.
Dre fathered LaTanya with an ex-girlfriend named Lisa Johnson over 37 years ago. Dre also has two other children with Lisa. Latoya is 36, and Ashley is 35-years-old. Dr. Dre also has two children with Nicole Young. Truice was born in 1997, while Truly was birth in 2001.
“She was very standoffish and mysterious. I got the impression she didn’t care to know any of us,” LaTanya said.
Dre’s family drama is hitting the news, as Nicole Young divorces her husband of 24 years. Nicole and Dr. Dre are fighting over an $850 million fortune he earned by selling Beats By Dre to Apple while they were still married.
In court documents, Dr. Dre denied all of the allegations of abuse.
