Dr. Dre Boasts That Daughter Got Into College 'All On Her Own' Despite $70 Million Donation
Rap legend Dr. Dre seemed to take aim at Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman over their college admission scandal in a now-deleted Instagram post.
Revealing that his daughter, Truly Young, was accepted the University of Southern California, Dr. Dre (real name Andre Young) boasted about the news over his Instagram.
Uploading a proud snap of himself and his daughter, Dre captioned the post, "all on her own. No jail time!!!" while Young reposted her dad's photo and shared on her Instagram story that "all my hard work paid off. I'm going to film school".
While fellow rap heavyweights Sean "Diddy" Combs, Busta Rhymes, T.I. and Timbaland all sent their well wishes to the star and his daughter, fans couldn't help but point out some hypocrisy over Dre's shady comment.
You see, back in 2013, Dre and music executive Jimmy Iovine donated an eye-watering $70 million to the university to build the Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation -- which many believe may have had a significant hand in the 54-year-old's daughter's acceptance into the school.
Both Instagram posts have since been deleted.
"The vision and generosity of Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young will profoundly influence the way all of us perceive and experience artistic media," C. L. Max Nikiasthe, who was the USC president at the time, said at the time of the donation.
Actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman were among 50 people indicted on Tuesday in a widespread bribery scandal.
The racketeering conspiracy case includes the parents of applicants, ACT and SAT administrators, a test proctor, and coaches at universities including Yale, Stanford, Georgetown and the University of Southern California.
