Music mogul Dr. Dre is threatening to sue Sony Pictures if they release the Michel’le biopic, which he says is depicting him as an abusive man. The movie will tell the story about her life and her relationships with both Dre and Suge Knight.
According to a source, Dr. Dre has sent Sony a cease and desist letter to block the movie “Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le”. In the letter, Dre denies abusing Michel’le and says there is no evidence to support the allegations. Dre’s lawyers claim Michel’le has no medical or court records supporting her claims of abuse.
Let’s take a look at the trailer for the film which hits our tv screens on 10/15/16/.
In the movie, Dre’s character is said to be extremely violent in the biopic. It will include an incident where Dre is said to have pointed a gun at Michel’le’s head.
Now remember Dre’s incident with Dee Barnes? For those that may not know, back on On January 27, 1991, Dee saw Dre at a record release party. Still upset about an interview Dee did with Ice Cube about leaving NWA, it is said that Dre grabbed Dee’s hair and slammed her head and body into a brick wall, tried to throw her down a flight of stairs, kicked her in the ribs, and punched her in the back of the head. Allegedly, Dre commented on the situation saying, “People talk all this shit, but you know, somebody fuck with me, I’m gonna fuck with them. I just did it, you know. Ain’t nothing you can do now by talking about it. Besides, it ain’t no big thing—I just threw her through a door.”
When ‘Straight Outta Compton’ the film was released, people had issues with the truth not being told. Michel’le had issues with that as well. So Dre issued an apology to the 3 women he admitted to abusing as a result of drinking too much.
Twenty-five years ago I was a young man drinking too much and in over my head with no real structure in my life. However, none of this is an excuse for what I did. I’ve been married for 19 years and every day I’m working to be a better man for my family, seeking guidance along the way. I’m doing everything I can so I never resemble that man again.
I apologize to the women I’ve hurt. I deeply regret what I did and know that it has forever impacted all of our lives.
So far Lifetime has no plans of stopping the release of the film.
