Truly Young’s Admission At The University of Southern California Was Controversial
Truly Young is a student at USC. But her enrollment in 2019 grabbed a lot of headlines. This was because of her dad Dr. Dre’s Instagram post regarding the same. The rapper boasted of her daughter’s ability to bag admission “all of her own. No jail time!!!”.
You may think it to be a light-hearted joke from a proud father. But it was actually a mild dig at Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman who were accused of bribing their daughter’s way into prestigious schools. Although Andre later deleted the post, others were quick to point out his $70 million donation in 2013. Truly, however, refuted all these allegations and said that her “very, very strict parent” always pushed “me to go to USC.”

Truly’s dad had many women in his life but Nicole was his only wife. They got married on May 25 in 1996. But when they were marching towards the silver jubilee phase of their marriage, things started falling apart. Nicole filed for divorce in June 2020 and soon everything got messier. The record producer accused her of stealing money from his organization. In return, she slammed infidelity allegations on him. After a few months of ruckus, the matter finally got settled on December 2021. The rapper paid a whopping $100 million to his ex-wife.

While her parents were going through a tough separation, many people voiced conflicting opinions. Among them, the comment that created the maximum fuss came from 50 Cent. He made a disgraceful personal attack on Nicole saying “these b****** be crazy how do you even ask for 2 million a month”.
Truly, being a doting daughter did not hold back against her mother’s bully. In her words “The blatant misogyny and disrespect by ignorant men that is being shown are absolutely f***** disgusting and vile”. She also stated the derogatory term used to be “unforgiving”.
According to her, 50 is an “ugly, washed up” rapper who was “envious of my family’s wealth and lifestyle”. She believed that it was one of his cheap “marketing schemes”. Seeing the young lady fight fiercely for her family even silenced 50. He just responded with a simple “LOL” and didn’t take the matter forward.
