More shocking revelations are coming about Michel’le’s relationship with Dr. Dre. Over the weekend, the singer said that she is writing a book that will show their relationship details to fans.
The singer revealed the news when she answered a fan’s question on Twitter. In her Lifetime biopic Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le, she reveals that Dr. Dre beat her while they were still together.
However, Dr. Dre denies that the abuse he inflicted on her. Dr. Dre also tried to sue the network and Sony if the TV film via Lifetime was aired.
However, the film’s executive producer, Leslie Greif, said that they did not give in to the threat. Despite the fact that Dr. Dre issued a cease and desist letter to Sony Pictures to stop the movie from showing, they decided that they will not allow Michel’le’s story to be kept a secret.
“I heard Sony said they vetted the film and stand by it, and will not allow Michel’le’s voice to be silenced. They’re supporting this picture … These are not new stories. Dr. Dre and Suge Knight have not seen the film to my knowledge, and are presupposing what they did and how it might make them appear on screen,” says Leslie.
Dr. Dre as well as Suge, who was also depicted in the film and is currently serving time at LA country due to murder charges, have not yet responded publicly about the film.
Many doubt the film’s accuracy but the Guardian reports, “The film largely echoes Michel’le’s accounts to me (Ben Westhoff, a writer for the Guardian), though she never went to the police with her allegations – unlike other women including television host Dee Barnes and Lisa Johnson, the mother of three of Dre’s children who alleged he beat her many times, including while she was pregnant (Dre pled no contest to beating Barnes, and received probation, while Johnson was granted a restraining order against him. A Ruthless rapper named Tairrie B also maintains that Dre beat her.”
