Everything we know about Lisa Johson 

According to an excerpt from Original Gangstas: The Untold Story of Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, Ice Cube, Tupac Shakur, and the Birth of West Coast Rap, Lisa was raised in South Central. While there isn’t much information available about her parents, she reportedly lost her brother in gang violence. 

She is believed to have been 14 years old when she started dating Dre. She had recently moved to the West Side of L.A. Lisa was in the ninth grade when she got romantically involved with Dre, who was 16 at the time. 

Lisa dropped out of her school at Fremont in tenth grade when she got pregnant with LaTanya, her first child with Dre. “He was a real proud father at the time,” Lisa said recollecting the moment their daughter was born in 1983. 

Lisa also welcomed her second daughter La’Toya with Dre in 1984. But, their relationship started to face hiccups at this point.

What happened between the couple?

According to the reports obtained by Daily Mail, Lisa and Dre split when LaTanya was five years old. 

Reportedly, their relationship experienced a crack much before Lisa was pregnant with her third child with the rapper and even claimed that he had mistreated her. She further said that she hadn’t received any child support from the rapper even when he rose to fame as a solo artist. 

It has also been reported that Lisa’s aunt helped her apply for combined child support and obtain a “domestic violence restraining order” against the rapper in 1985. 

Lisa claimed, “He didn’t do any child support, and he did not stop contacting me.”

Where is LaTanya Young now?

In an exclusive interview with the Daily Mail, LaTanya has claimed that she is homeless and living out of her car. She said she works for DoorSadh and Uber East as a driver to make the ends meet. 

“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,” LaTanya said. 

LaTanya further noted that she hasn’t seen her father in 18 years and the only way she can get in touch with him is through his team. 

Meanwhile, addressing the news regarding Dre reportedly paying his ex-wife Nicole Young nearly $300,000 in spousal support, she said, “It’s embarrassing because people are looking at me wondering: Why? What Nicole has got is what my mom should have got.”
