Amid all the controversy over a college admissions scandal that rocked the nation recently, aging rapper Dr. Dre took to Instagram to boast that his youngest daughter got accepted into the University of Southern California “all on her own.”
“My daughter got accepted into USC all on her own. No jail time!!!” he wrote, sharing a photo of the two of them posing with the USC certificate of admission.
That’s right, Dr. Dre, whose real name is Andre Young, wanted his followers to know the $70 million he donated to the university six years ago had absolutely nothing to do with his 18-year-old daughter Truly Young’s acceptance.
But the 54-year-old father’s pride was short-lived because he would soon delete the post. Either that, or common sense logic got the better of him.
His daughter, who also shared the photo, would delete it from her Instagram feed too.
Young and record producer Jimmy Iovine made the $70 million donations in 2013 and have a building on campus named after them — the money went toward creating the USC Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for arts and technology, according to the Daily Mail.
As was learned earlier this month, wealth and rank come with privileges like having the means to pay bribes to get your kids admitted to some of the most elite schools in America.
The largest college admissions cheating scam ever prosecuted by the Department of Justice was announced on March 12, and the nationwide scandal included students at USC.
Actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, best known for her role in “Full House,” were among those charges, as more than four dozen wealthy parents were suspected of paying up to $6.5 million to have their children admitted to top schools.

Court documents state that “[Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli] agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC.”
One of those daughters, Olivia Jade, a YouTube star of her own, posted a video last year proving that this may not have been money well spent, as she admitted that she didn’t care about school, but did want to experience “game days” and “partying.”
“I don’t know how much of school I’m gonna attend, but I’m gonna go in and talk to my deans and everyone, and hope that I can try and balance it all,” she says. “But I do want the experience of like game days, partying. I don’t really care about school, as you guys all know.”
As for Dr Dre, aka Andre Young, turns out the pride he has in his daughter runs deep.
