For Dr. Dre, payback for his alleged beatings of Michel’le back in the day is turning to be a real bitch, as they say.
That’s because in the wake of her Lifetime biopic Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le, the diminutive singer with the big voice is not through with him yet.
Over the weekend, she revealed that she is in the process of writing a book about her relationship with him. She shared the news while responding to a fan on Twitter.
Meanwhile, her biopic aired and received rave reviews from viewers. The made for TV film via Lifetime shared her life story, along with revealing the alleged abuse that she received at the hands of Dr. Dre throughout the course of their relationship, a claim he not only denies, but threatened to sue the network and Sony if the film aired. Well ovviously it did, so we’ll see if he goes through with the threat.
In fact, the film’s executive producer, Leslie Greif, confirmed that Dre did in fact issue a cease and desist letter to Sony Pictures to try to stop the film from airing.
“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.”
As you can tell by the title, Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le, the film also portrays Michel’le’s relationship with Suge Knight, the co-founder of Death Row Records. According to theJasmineBrand, neither Dr. Dre or Suge (who is still in lockdown at LA County Jail on murder charges) have yet to respond publicly or through their reps about the film.
