Dr. Dre has a lot of broken family ties.

Dre has seen his biological daughter in 17 years, and the 37-year-old mother of four with a near-billionaire dad is working as a FedEx driver.

He is also almost completely estranged from his dad Theodore Young.

"I haven’t seen Andre since his grandfather died and I can’t even remember when that was,” the 73-year-old Theodore told the New York Post from his home near Sacramento, Calif. “We have no relationship. My other sons love me. They tell me they love me. But coming from where I come from, most young men like Andre who have a big success don’t give a damn about their dad."

In Dre's defense, he grew up not knowing Theodore, who split with Dre's mom after being accused of abusing her.  (He denies this.)

“His grandmother raised him,” Young told The Post. “His mother and grandmother sprinkled a whole lot of salt on me.”

Dre has also been having trouble with the family members he does keep in contact with,  He and his estranged wife Nicole are going through a very bitter, very public divorce.
