Dr. Dre's daughters include LaTanya (born 1983), LaToya (1983) Tyra (1984), Ashley (1985), and Truly (2001).

LaTanya's life has arguably been the most difficult, with her being homeless since 2020 after her father stopped paying for her rent and other expenses after she allegedly spoke to the media about him. She has been living in her car and working for delivery services to make ends meet.

LaToya is another one of his children that has minimal information associated with them. Her mother has also stated that Dre does not talk to LaToya or her sibling, LaTanya. The only details about Tyra are that she was born in May 1984, and the same goes for Ashley, born in 1985. Dre has not confirmed Ashley to be his.

Truly is the youngest and has been attending the University of Southern California as of 2021. There is no confirmation on if she is still studying there, but it has been reported that she also models in her spare time.
