Meet Marcel Young, who is Michel’le and Dr. Dre’s son. His father is famous American rapper, producer, and entrepreneur, Dr. Dre. Marcel’s mother is a famous American R&B singer, Michel’le. He was born in New York City, USA, on 6 February 1991. His Zodiac sign is Aquarius.
Early life and education
Marcel was raised like a normal boy in New York City. As an only child, he had to endure days when his parents were fighting. According to the report, the parents fought a lot. Michel’le was 20 years old when she gave birth to Marcel. As a young woman who was dating Dr. Dre, her life was tough. Dr. Dre used to drink a lot during that time and often cheated on Michel’le.
To make things worse, Dr. Dre was involved in physical abuse toward his wife. One time, he even broke her nose which then required surgery to fix. During the years they were together, Michel’le had a black eye about five times and broken ribs once. The worst thing that happened was when Dr. Dre tried to shoot her. Luckily he missed and hit a door instead.
During this dark time, Marcel was too young to understand what was really happening. Michel’le then left Dr. Dre after learning that he was already engaged to another woman. In 2002, Marcel got a younger sister, Bailei, who is his half-sister, and seven paternal half-siblings.
Marcel was then raised by his mother alone. But Dr. Dre did send Michel’e some money to take care of him. A bit later, she married a former music executive Suge Knight in 1999 while he was spending time as an inmate.
It turned out that Marcel didn’t have good relations with Suge Knight. Suge was also violent toward Michel’le to the point that he dislocated her jaw once.
During his teenage year, Marcel attended a local high school. Due to his problems at home, he consulted with music to gain some peace of mind. He listened to a lot of music and joined the school’s drama club. He graduated high school in 2009 and then enrolled in college. Marcel then earned his bachelor’s degree in 2013.
Marcel Young’s career
He has never shared much about his career with the public. However, according to some rumors floating around, Marcel is involved in the music industry. But he still stayed away from the spotlight for some unknown reasons.
Private life and wife
Much like his career, Marcel is secretive about his private life and wife. His love life is pretty much still a mystery to this day. This is why we can only rely on rumors on the internet regarding his current relationship status and sexual orientation.
Some fans of Dr. Dree and Michel’le believe that Marcel is gay, which is why he is being secretive about his love life. There is also a rumor that says Marcel doesn’t really interact with women whom he has dated before. A fan even claimed that Marcel has been spending time with a man who is supposed to be his boyfriend.
None of these rumors have been confirmed by Marcel himself. There are also conflicting rumors that say he is straight and is in a relationship or married to an American woman. This woman is also believed to be a non-celebrity. So the reason why Marcel is being secretive about his private life is to keep his wife out of the spotlight.
One believable rumor is that Marcel was single in 2021. He hasn’t married anyone and doesn’t have children.
Marcel’s interests and hobbies
Marcel is heavily into traveling. He started traveling a lot when he was a teenager, thanks to his father, who brought him on his tours a lot. Now marcel has traveled to more than ten states and several cities in Europe. He has been to England, Rome, and many other cities.
He is also active and claims that he has five training sessions at the gym every week. One surprising fact is that Marcel actually loves animals, especially dogs. He has two cute dogs at home.
Marcel has a few favorite rappers and singers. Some of them are Kanye West, Eminem, and Snoop Dogg. He apparently has something called movie nights. Marcel loves watching a movie late at night. Some of his favorite movies are Fight Club, The 5th Element, and The Fast and The Furious.
Marcel’s height, age, and net worth
As of 2022, Marcel is 31 years old. His height is 5 feet, and 7 inches or 1.7m, and his weight is around 140lbs or 65kg. He has brown eyes and short black hair.
His net worth is a lot different from his father, however, as of now, it is around $100,000. Meanwhile, Dr. Dre’s net worth is over $800 million and Michel’le’s net worth is about $250,000.
Who is Michel’le?
Her full name is Michel’le Denis Toussant. She was born in Los Angeles, California, USA, on 5 December 1970. Michel’le is an American, and he is known mostly for her single “No More Lies.” The song got really popular at some point and reached the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart.
She spent most of her time growing up in Los Angeles with her brother Soliarli, also known as Christopher Toussant. Her parents are not famous, and she respects their privacy by not exposing them to the entertainment industry.
Michel’le started her interest in music when she was still little. It all started in a local elementary school, where she started to listen to music a lot. Then, Michle’le launched her career when she was still a high school student. Her first performance was in 1987 when she was singing Turn Off The Lights by World Class Wreckin’ Cru.
After her amazing performance, she got an offer from Ruthless Records. She signed the contract and decided that college wasn’t for her. Michel’le then focused on her career as a singer and released her debut self-titled album in 1989.
The debut album was produced by the man Dr. Dre himself, and it was certified Gold on 25 April 1990. They managed to sell more than 500,000 copies in the US alone. However, her second album in 1998, Hung Jury, didn’t receive the same success.
Who is Dr. Dre?
I am sure everyone already knows who Dr. Dre is at this point. Dr. Dre or Andre Romelle Young was born on 18 February 1965 in Compton, California. He is an American rapper, producer, and entrepreneur whose achievements have been spectacular. He’s been active in the music industry since 1992 starting with NWA. A recent hit album, “The Chronic” blew up internationally.
As a kid, Dr. Dre was raised by his father, Theodore, and mother, Verna Young, in Compton. His parents divorced in 1972. And after four years since then, Dr. Dre got three half-siblings from his mother’s second marriage with Curtis Crayon.
Dr. Dre went to Vanguard Junior High School, but then he had to move to Roosevelt Junior High School because of gang violence in the area. He had to move again twice, first to Centennial High School and again to Fremont High School, before he graduated in 1983. After his high school years, Dr. Dre decided to pursue his rapping career.
He started his career from the bottom by working in a club called Eve After Dark. His position there was a DJ, and he went by the name of Dr. J. It was only a year after that when he changed his name to Dr. Dre.
Dr. Dre then became involved with Death Row, a popular record label at that time. However, his poor relationship with Suge Knight made him leave the record label. He told the media that Suge Knight became out of control and corrupt.
After his leave, Dr. Dre founded a new company called Aftermath Entertainment. He has since been making music until today.
Other than music, Dr. Dre acted in a couple of movies before. He appeared in 1996, Set it Off, then The Wash in 2011, and finally Training Day again in 2011.
His relationships didn’t go well, however. He has been in multiple relationships dating back to when he was 16 years old. His first girlfriend was Cassandra Joy green, and they had a son named Curtis. His last marriage to Nicole gave him a daughter and a son. But that too ended in divorce back in 2020.
