Dr. Dre isn’t holding back his excitement over his daughter being accepted into one of the nation’s best colleges.
The 54-year-old hip-hop legend proudly boasted about his daughter Truly Young’s acceptance into the University of Southern California on social media Saturday (March 23) while also poking fun at those involved in the alleged college admissions bribery scandal, which involved stars like Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin.
“My daughter got accepted into USC all on her own. No jail time!!!” Dre captioned an Instagram photo of himself proudly standing next to Truly Young, 18, who is seen holding up an “Experience USC” booklet.
Earlier this month, Full House star Loughlin and 40 others were charged in a nationwide college admissions cheating scandal in which wealthy parents dished up to $6.5 million for elite universities to accept their children.
Dr. Dre, whose real name is Andre Young, has close ties to USC. In 2013, he and music industry entrepreneur Jimmy Iovine — who together founded Beats Electronics and later sold it to Apple for $3 billion — donated a combined $70 million to create a new institute at USC.
The hefty donation was used to establish the Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation. The program aims to help undergrad students interested in marketing, business entrepreneurship, computer science and engineering, audio and visual design and the arts, according to a news release.
