Dr. Dre’s attempt to throw shade on the recent celebrity college admissions scandals backfired after he apparently belatedly realized that he’d donated $70 million to the college his daughter, Truly, is attending.
On Saturday Dre posted a photo with the caption, “My daughter got accepted into USC all on her own.
Making matters worse, on Monday TMZ excavated a post from Truly that seems to suggest she actually didn’t want to attend USC, saying that her father was pushing her to attend the school.
None of this indicates that Truly was not accepted to USC entirely on her own merits, or that Dre’s contribution was not completely above board.
However, anyone with a teenaged daughter will understand the doghouse Dre is presumably in at the moment.
A second suit, filed on behalf of two Stanford students, claims their degree has been devalued due to the school’s association with the scandal. »
