Who Is Dr. Dre's Daughter? New Details On Truly Young — And Her Controversial USC Admission

When the college admissions bribery and cheating scandal broke earlier this month, people across the country expressed their outrage. From a young age, parents teach their children to work hard for their success so they can get into a good college and use their degree to pursue their dreams. But if you are wealthy, you can buy your way into school, it seems. 

So far, 50 people have been charged in the scandal, including actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin. Though this type of thing has been going on for a long time, this is the first case in which charges have been brought forward. Hopefully, people will realize that by paying off officials to help their children cheat their way into school, cheaters never prosper.

And though other celebs have weighed in on the matter, voicing their disgust, another celebrity is throwing major shade. Dr. Dre made a now-deleted Instagram post, praising his daughter for getting into USC without him having to bribe officials.

“My daughter got accepted into USC all on her own. No jail time!!!” he wrote, poking fun at the scandal. Young then reposted her dad’s photo, sharing on her Instagram story, “all my hard work paid off. I’m going to film school.”

But just who is Dr. Dre's daughter? Truly Young is the youngest of Dr. Dre’s six kids, his daughter with his current wife, Nicole Threatt.

But aside from being the baby of the family, Truly has a budding music career, though her tastes differ from her dad. She’s had one hit single so far called “Lover Boy,” and has listed her inspirations as Nirvana, The Cure, and Lana Del Rey.

“As an artist I want to be able to inspire young people to break away from societal standards,” she said in an interview with Vogue.

But shortly after Dr. Dre made the post, he received backlash because, as it turns out, he made a $70 million donation to USC in 2013. He and Jimmy Iovine donated the money to establish the Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation, which is designed to “promote entrepreneurship, computer science and engineering, audio and visual design, and the arts.”

With some additional digging, internet dwellers found that Truly, much like Olivia Jade Giannulli, may not even enjoy school and didn’t want to attend USC to begin with.

Back in May 2018, Truly made a post on Instagram of a photo with her and her dad, with the caption, “Dad pushing me to go to USC.” However, that doesn’t necessarily mean she wasn’t accepted on her own merit and intelligence.

For now, maybe celebrities who can actually afford to send their children to expensive schools should stay tight-lipped. After all, they are the ones with the most privilege in this situation.
