    Dr. Dre Is Prepared To Sue If Michel'le's Biopic Paints Him As A Woman Beater


    Last year, Dr. Dre apologized to “the women he hurt” and blamed age and immaturity after journalist Dee Barnes recounted the night the Apple Music exec allegedly pummeled her 1991. The apology also came after ex-girlfriend Michel’le said she suffered five black eyes, cracked ribs and scars during the course of her relationship with the superproducer. With her story left untold in N.W.A.’s biopic Straight Outta Compton, Michel’le is taking to the small screen with an upcoming biopic , which may include Dr. Dre physically assaulting her. However, the super producer is crying foul ...

    Michel'le responds to Dr Dre threatening to sue Sony Pictures over beating claims in Lifetime biopic

    The 45-year-old singer sat down for an interview with Wendy Williams earlier in October to discuss the biopic. Recalling the alleged abuse, Michel'le said: "I stayed because it was normal. After the first hit, you don't think they're going to do it again. I didn't call the police because I didn't want him to go to jail. All the men around me were always going to jail and be gone for years and I didn't think that was a good idea" ...

    Why are Black people finding it so easy to Boycott other Blacks and can't Boycott corporation using prison slave labor.

    Boycott Walmart, Victoria Secrets, AT&T, McDonalds, and a host of other corporations.

    Make a difference with your boycott, not a statement.

    I don't get it. He owned it now he doesn't want her to have the right to say it in a movie? I guess he is saying, he made a general statement to the women and not specifically saying it was her. He may have a leg to stand on I suppose. His word against hers. Better yet, his money against hers probably why he's going after Sony.

    You are assuming that the majority of Beats by Dre owners are Black. I am not so certain that is the case. I've actually seen more white people using them than I have our own people. Also, I believe that it is fine that we boycott his namesake headphones and boycott those other companies mentioned, because the actions are not mutually exclusive. Besides, his headphones should be boycotted just based on the shoddy workmanship and poor quality sound. The only thing I found good about those headphones was his name on them and even that is now as crappy as their construction.
