New claims are here on the music mogul Dr Dre, but this time, it’s not from his wife but from his own father.
The rapper’s father, Theodore Young, gave a tell-all interview to Page Six claiming he and his very famous son have virtually no relationship at all.
“I haven’t seen Andre since his grandfather died and I can’t even remember when that was,” the 73-year-old said, adding that Dre’s success is at least partially to blame for their strained 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.”
Now last month, Dre’s eldest daughter LaTanya Young claimed she hasn’t heard from her father in 17 years and stated all she wanted was to spend time with her father.
Dr Dre’s mother Verna got pregnant with him at just 16 years old and reportedly left Theodore over abuse allegations – something his father denied – shortly after Dre was born.
Consequently, Dre, who is already going through a rocky divorce and was recently hospitalized, was raised by his grandmother and has continued to keep his distance from Theodore.
