Dr. Dre’s oldest daughter, LaTanya Young, started a GoFundMe page to raise money for housing for her and her four kids.

Young launched the fundraiser on August 9, according to the GoFundMe page. Young, 38, said in an interview with the Daily Mail published on August 4 that she’s living out of an SUV rental in Tarzana, California, a suburb of Los Angeles. She told the Daily Mail that she hasn’t received money from her father since January 2020.

“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,” the GoFundMe page reads.

Young told the Daily Mail in an article published Thursday that she started the campaign in response to people asking her if she had a place to donate.

“I think GoFundMe campaigns are for people in desperate situations, and I’m in a desperate situation,” Young added, speaking with the Daily Mail.

The fundraiser has a goal of $50,000, and it’s raised more than $3,400 at the time of writing.

Representatives for GoFundMe, Dr. Dre, and Young, respectively, did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.

Young told the Daily Mail in early August that she had not seen her father in 18 years, doesn’t have his cell phone number, and must communicate with him through his team. Young said that until January 2020, Dr. Dre paid her rent and gave her an allowance.

Young told the Daily Mail in the same article that she didn’t think she would be able to afford the SUV she’s living in for much longer.

“My kids are staying with friends – they are not living in the car, it’s just me,” she told the Daily Mail in the same article. “I’m taking odd jobs just to make it now – I got paid $15 an hour as an assembler at the warehouse. I’m trying to keep my head above water. I’ve been in debt for a while.”

Young added, speaking with the Daily Mail: “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.”

In January, the hip hop artist and Beats By Dre founder suffered a brain aneurysm and was said to be in stable condition after treatment, TMZ reported at the time.
