However, she has not been involved in any TV projects since then. We hope that Tyra will be featured in many TV shows in the coming days.
Tyra Young’s father Dr. Dre has been in multiple relationships, but her mother’s identity remains a secret
Dr. Dre’s first known relationship was with his girlfriend at the time Cassandra Joy Greene.

The process of meeting his famous brother took him two decades. While the father-son duo was distant for years, all seems well between the two for now. During an interview with XXLsaid Curtis,
‘It’s been good. We’re both working… I always want to paint him in the best light I can.”
In addition, he said, Dr. Dre not him financially, but he said so with positive vibes. Curtis explained,
