Dr. Dre Threatens Lawsuit Over Michel’le Biopic

Submitted by on October 11, 2016 – 11:13 amNo Comment

Dr. Dre is threatening to sue Sony Pictures if he’s portrayed as a woman beater in the Michel’le biopic, Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Me. The hip-hop megastar’s legal team recently sent the studio a cease and desist letter, and according to TMZ:

…Dre flatly denies ever abusing Michel’le. It makes reference to the fact that they dated around 30 years ago and she never hinted at abuse or any type of violent behavior on his part. They also say she never sought medical treatment or filed a police report.

As we previously reported, Michel’le is a singer/songwriter who was signed to Eazy-E‘s Ruthless Records in the late 80s. The 45-year-old notoriously had relationships and children with both Death Row Records CEO/Co-founder Suge Knight, who she married in 1999 and divorced 8 years later, and Dre, who allegedly physically abused her. Reportedly, that abuse, which was ignored in the N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton, will be front and center in this movie.

Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Me is set to debut on October 15 on Lifetime…unless Dre shuts it down before then.
