Surviving Compton! Dr. Dre Threatens Sony Pictures With Lawsuit Over Michel’le Biopic
Dr Dre doesnt want any one to depict him as a woman beater.
According to TMZ, Sony Pictures is set to release “Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le”, a film that depicts Dre as a woman beater. Dre’s legal team has fired off a cease and desist letter, demanding that Sony back off, if it doesn’t want to end up in court.
In the letter to Sony, 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.
Dre’s character in the film is extremely violent according to report, attacking Michel’le by pulling her hair, punching her in the face and even pulling a gun on her.
Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le is set to premiere Oct. 15 at 8/7 c on Lifetime.
