Michel’le has always been adamant on saying that she was abused by both Dr. Dre and Suge Knight and she has never changed her story. Even though Dr. Dre came out with an apology about the situation, he is now trying to sue her claiming that he is in fact not a woman beater…..
Well, Michel’le is speaking on his claims confirming that he did indeed abuse her and talks about his half ass apology:
“He apologized to the public. I don’t think that was an apology to me, because if it was, he would’ve either called me without the public and said ‘Michel’le, I am so sorry for what I did to you 20-something years ago,’ that’s an apology,” she said. “I just think he did a general apology because he had a movie out, and he’s got a brand and that’s what you do. I’m not mad at him. If he feels free with that, then that’s good. I don’t know if Dee Barnes took it to heart.”
Just last week she did the interview with Wendy Williams stating that she would like Dr. Dre to sue her, because then he would have to be honest and tell the truth.
“If he would like to take me to court and sue me, then we should both do our depositions so we can get the story right,” she said in response to Dre’s statement in the film. “And I have witnesses, so I don’t think people are gonna get up there and say, ‘No we didn’t see anything.’”
Michel’le goes on to say:
“What doesn’t make sense is, why would you publicly apologize for beating women, and then turn around and say, ‘I didn’t beat a woman?’ That doesn’t make any sense to me, that’s an oxymoron… and you had the audacity to put it at the end of my credits,” she said. “You know, he had to get a lawyer to even remotely make me put that on there.”
The singer added that Suge Knight also issued a statement threatening to sue her and Lifetime network “if we made him look any type of way” in the biopic.
Miche’le concludes that she doesn’t have any regrets about her past relationships with Dr. Dre or Suge Knight, and hopes her biopic will help encourage other women to avoid both emotional and physically abusive relationships.
“I want women to just not go through that at all,” she said. “People can tell you about it, but it’s also a mental thing as well. It wasn’t just physical. Of course, it affected me mentally because I’m still talking about it. So it’s a scar on your brain, but you have to find it in your heart to just put it away.”
“It’s easy for people to say, ‘OK, get over. Let it go,’ but then it’s not as easy. And the same goes with substance abuse, too. It was hell and didn’t help the situation, at all. I just really don’t want women to go through it, at all.”
“Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le” will premiere Oct. 15 on Lifetime.
