Born on February 6th, 1991, Marcel is the child of two celebrities named Dr.Dre and Michel’le. He has good physics, with a height of 178cm and a weight of 143 lbs.

When Marcel was inside Michel’le, she knew she was pregnant only after six weeks. Michel’le then had the hummer tour and quickly had to wrap up her tour. Michel’le shared that pregnancy can hinder you from growing in the industry in an interview. It will easily take one and a half years off your career, which will be a lot.

Marcel was raised by her mother alongside his half-sister Bailei Knight. Although Marcel’s parents have split up, he shares an excellent relationship with his father and mother.


Born to the famous Dr.Dre and Michel’le Toussaint, Marcel is a celebrity child living a very private lifestyle.

Michel’le Toussaint (mother)

Born on December 5, 1970, Michel’le Denise Toussaint is an American R&B singer. Michel’le first met Dr.Dre in 1987 when she was 17 years old. 

She worked as a featured vocalist in World Class Wreckin’ Crue’s Turn Off the Lights. Later Michel’le and Dr.Dre started dating & ended their relationship in 1996.

Michel’le stated that one of the reasons for their split up was that he was engaged to someone else. The other was domestic violence.

Because of the above causes, Michel’le started taking prescription pills and alcohol. This worsened her condition even more.

In essence, it was then that Suge Knight stepped in and helped Michel’le by sending her for rehabilitation. Later, in 1999, Michel’le married Suge Knight while he was in prison.

Suge and Michel’le have a daughter together named Bailei Knight. However, after seven years, Michel’le filed for divorce. 

As the procedures for divorce took place, Michel’le realized that the marriage was not significant because Suge was still married to his ex-wife Sharitha.

In 2013, Michel’le appeared on R & B Divas as a cast member. She was also the subject of the Biographical film 2016 named Surviving Compton: Dre.Dre, Suge, and Michel’le.

Marcel has six siblings from his father’s side and one from his mother’s.

Marcel Young Relationships

As of now, there is no news of Marcel Young being married or in any relationships. However, he doesn’t fancy the limelight yet.

Hopefully, if he gets married or is in a relationship, his mother will tip us off for him because she loves boosting her Instagram galleries with her children.

Unlike Marcel, his father, Dr. Dre, has been in numerous relationships and breakups for decades. Dr. Dre started dating Cassandra Joy Green in 1981.

Next, he dated Lisa Johnsons, and in 1988 he dated Jenita Porter. Finally, he got engaged to Michel’le in 1987, but they split up in 1996.

Health Issues of Marcel Young

As of 2022, Marcel Young has not faced any life-threatening or critical health issues. But, conversely, Dre, his father, recently met one.

On January 5th, 2021, Dre was hospitalized in Cedars’ Sinai Medical Center ICU for his Brain Aneurysm. A brain aneurysm is a cerebrovascular disorder where the blood vessels bulge in the brain (looking like a cherry hanging on a stem).

This condition can worsen and even cause bleeding in the brain. Dr. Dre was released in February 2021 and made an official post thanking the hospital staff for taking good care of him.

When he was in the hospital, there was an attempted robbery in his house. He was supported by LL Cool J, Ellen DeGeneres, LeBron James, Quincy Jones, Martin Lawrence, and many more during his suffering.

Similarly, Michel’le faced many health issues when she was dating Dr. Dre. For example, in an interview, she revealed that her nose was broken because of domestic violence, and she got it fixed surgically.

Breakage of ribs, Black eyes, and beatings were a few more issues she faced.


The field where Marcel works and his work has been kept private until 2022 because Marcel doesn’t like being in the limelight.

However, as we analyzed Michel’les’ Instagram account, there were comments about not seeing Marcel in the studio these days. Therefore, they may be referred to as he works in the studios behind the cameras.

Or it may be the other way, with Marcel accompanying her mother to the studio for recordings. We can assume that he lives a smooth and normal everyday life despite his celebrity parents.
