A number of women, including Michel’le, Dr. Dre’s former girlfriend, have claimed in the past that the rapper/producer/entrepreneur was violent towards them. She said his comments were “good PR”, during a time when a movie documenting his time with Compton supergroup NWA is out in cinemas.
Dr. Dre has previously apologized for his violent past and has been documented by The New York Times as saying, “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.”
Michel’le had previously spoken out about his violence during their relationship. Speaking about the recently released N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton, in which she does not appear, she said: “Why would Dre put me in it? If they start from where they start from, I was just a quiet girlfriend who got beat up and told to sit down and shut up.”
