Dr Dre deletes ‘no jail time’ post after boasting that daughter got into USC ‘on her own’
Rapper Dr. Dre’s daughter would have been just edging into adolescence when he and Jimmy Iovine gave $70 million to the University of Southern California to start a new program marrying technology and the arts.
Flash forward six years. Said daughter, Truly Young, is accepted into the University of Southern California.
“My daughter got accepted into USC all on her own. No jail time!!!” boasted the proud papa on Instagram, pictured with Young holding her admissions acceptance letter and a pamphlet about the school.
Young no doubt got there with hard work and good grades, which she attested to in her own social media post announcing excitedly that she would be attending the university’s School of Cinematic Arts.
“Truly shared the same photo to her Instagram, and later revealed on her Instagram Story that she’ll be attending the USC School of Cinematic Arts.
“ALL MY HARD WORK PAID OFF. I’M GOING TO FILM SCHOOL,” she wrote, in a social media post shared by People.
However, Dre’s jab at fellow celebs who were recently busted for allegedly forking over thousands of dollars in bribes and other payments to defraud institutions and get their kids into college “raised a few eyebrows,” as USA Today put it.
Dre quickly deleted his post, but not before it had been captured and reproduced by a celebrity-watching account. Young, who had written something similar in a separate post, followed suit.
Dre, also an entrepreneur and producer – whose given name is Andre Young - and Iovine of Universal Music Group had donated the money jointly in 2013 to create the USC Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation, as USC announced at the time.
Dre’s post also got positive feedback, as People pointed out, from fellow celebs such as Diddy.
