Dr. Dre’s father Theodore Young opened up on his relationship with the rapper and broke everyone’s hearts with his statement.
Dr. Dre has been on the agenda after his divorce from his estranged wife Nicole Young in 2020. While his family members talked about the famous rapper and music producer, they exposed many unknowns about the relationship between them and the rapper. A few months ago, Dr. Dre’s eldest daughter, Truly Young, announced that she hadn’t seen her in nearly 17 years.
This time, Dr. Dre’s father, Theodore Young, revealed in a recent interview with PageSix, how strained his relationship with his son was. His father said during the interview that his son did not meet with family members, friends, and people close to him. Theodore also said he hadn’t seen his son in years.
Here’s what Theodore Young stated:
“I haven’t seen Andre since his grandfather died and I can’t even remember when that was.”
“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.”
Dre’s parents separated shortly after his birth. His mother Verna had previously claimed that Dre’s father had abused his mom during their relationship, Theodore denied this allegation. Dre had been confirmed by his mother that he was raised largely by his maternal grandmother and mother.
