TMZ is reporting that Dr. Dre is planning to file a lawsuit against Sony for portraying him as a woman beater in a new TV Movie Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le. The movie depicts Dr. Dre as a woman beater who abuses Michel’le which actually never happened in real life.
Dr. Dre’s character is portrayed as extremely violent who pulls Michel’le’s hair, punches her in the face, and even pulling a gun on her. We have no idea why Sony would like to tarnish Dr.Dre’s name especially if these allegations never happened. The two dated almost 30 years ago and no allegations of abuse have never been brought to the table.
Dr.Dre’s lawyers are ready to file a suit and also have told Michel’le to keep her mouth shut during this situation. Sony is set to release the movie this coming week. If so Sony should get ready for some court appearance’s and may have to pay a pretty penny to Dr. Dre.
Watch the world premiere of “Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge, & Michel’le” on October 15 at 8/7c on Lifetime.
