(Gossip-Grind) Dr. Dre Threatens Lawsuit Against Sony Over Michel’le Movie
As soon as I learned that Lifetime would be releasing a movie based on Michel’le’s life, and her relationships with Dr. Dre and Suge Knight, I knew that legal action would soon follow. Michel’le has claimed for years that Dre allegedly beat her while they were a couple, and the Compton music mogul has always denied these allegations.
Sony Pictures is set to release “Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le” … a film that depicts Dre as a woman beater. We’ve learned Dre’s legal team fired off a cease and desist letter … demanding that Sony back off, if it doesn’t want to end up in court.
According to the letter, 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.
We’re told Dre’s character in the film is extremely violent — attacking Michel’le by pulling her hair, punching her in the face and even pulling a gun on her.
Dre’s attorneys have also warned Michel’le to back off.
The film is set for release next week. (TMZ)
