Music legend Dr. Dre announced on social media that his daughter got accepted into the University of Southern California. The proud dad posted a picture of himself alongside his daughter, Truly Young, who was holding her acceptance letter.

His proud dad post wasn’t without a little shade as his caption read “My daughter got accepted into USC all on her own. No jail time!!!” There is no doubt this is aimed at the parents who were involved in the college admissions scandal.

Dr. Dre’s post did raise a few eyebrows, as commentators were quick to call out that Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine donated $70 million to the USC back in 2013, which was used to create an art, technology, and a business academy named after Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine.

A Dr. Dre & Jimmy Iovine Documentary Series Is Coming To HBO

HBO has announced a four-part documentary series about Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine. The Defiant Ones — directed by Allen Hughes (Menace II Society, Dead Presidents) — will feature interviews with Ice Cube, Eminem, and more.

From HBO:

“Set amid many of the defining events of the past four decades, THE DEFIANT ONES tells the stories of Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre — one the son of a Brooklyn longshoreman, the other straight out of Compton — and their improbable partnership and surprising leading roles in a series of transformative events in contemporary culture. This revealing, compelling and often-gritty story takes place in recording studios, in humble homes and massive mansions, in criminal courts and in the highest corridors of corporate power.

A unique and inspiring tale, it’s unflinchingly told with the help of many of the most notable artists and figures of our time, reflecting Hughes’ unfettered access to Iovine, Dre and the remarkable cast of prominent figures who have been a part of their success story. This epic look at America shows how you can consistently defy conventional wisdom and even logic, and still win big.”

As Rolling Stone notes, the duo’s partnership dates back to the early ’90s. Dre and Iovine joined forces for Dre’s label, Aftermath. The two also collaborated in the creation of Beats By Dre, soon purchased by Apple, and would later birth successful music streaming service Apple Music.

Suge Knight Files Lawsuit Against Dr. Dre For Millions Of Dollars

Suge Knight

Suge Knight and Dr. Dre have drama between them that’s way bigger than the fact that they were both main characters in Michel’le‘s Lifetime biopic.

According to reports, Suge filed a lawsuit against Dre, claiming that he hired a hitman to kill him over Beats By Dre. The former Death Row Records CEO says he had a lifetime management deal with Dre, which entitled him to a 30 percent cut of Dre’s entertainment earnings, but when Beats came along, Suge alleges that Dre tried to cut him out, in part because of Apple.

Apple, who bought Beats from Dre, reportedly didn’t want its brand associated with Suge. The lawsuit says that Dre then decided to hire a hitman to kill Suge at 1 OAK during the 2014 VMAs weekend, but he recovered from being shot seven times in the abdomen. The suit also claims the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. questioned a man named T-Money about the shooting, and he told investigators he was paid by Dre to kill Suge.

Suge is claiming that Dre and Universal, which produced Straight Outta Compton, paid Cle “Bone” Sloan $300,000, insinuating he would take care of the Suge problem. He’s also suing Dre, Apple, Universal and Tam’s Burgers in Compton, for unspecified damages, including 30 percent of Dre’s take from the Beats sale (which would equal around $300 million since Dre got $1 billion).

Michel’le Spills The Tea & Fills In The Blanks With ‘Surviving Compton’

Screening Of Lifetime's 'Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge And Michel'le' - Arrivals

Source: Leon Bennett / Getty


When Straight Outta Compton debuted last year, Hollywood was buzzing over the movie about the rise of NWA that became an instant hit. But among all the chatter were whispers wondering why Michel’le Toussaint was nowhere to be found in the narrative even though she was a huge part of their history.

By the time Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le debuted, we were more than ready to see her part of the story. And we brewed a big cup of tea to sip while we watched.

Michel’le wasted no time addressing her absence from Straight Outta Compton. While she didn’t outright say Dr. Dre was wrong for excluding her from the movie, she made it clear that Surviving Compton was going to be her story (*sip*).

As such, Michel’le herself was very present throughout the movie as she narrated the story in person. It added a really nice touch that other Lifetime biopics haven’t really used. We were getting the story right from Michel’le‘s own mouth.

With love, drama, and suspense filling in all of the ups and downs, Michel’le‘s story had the makings of a classic Lifetime movie. The network couldn’t have made up a better script. Sadly, Michel’le actually had to live this out.

The casting was a bit hit or miss, but not bad overall. Of course, Lifetime wasn’t working with the same budget as Straght Outta Compton. They picked exactly the right guy to play Suge, though. And it was cool to see Tupac as part of Surviving Compton. And can we just say that Rhyon Nicole Brown had Michel’le‘s speaking voice down! Jamie Kennedy as Jerry Heller was a little odd, but he’s come a long way from playing B-Rad. Good for him!

Parts of Surviving Compton were painful to watch. In particular, anything having to do with her love life was heart breaking. That said, there were moments of awkward comedy within her situation. You wouldn’t believe what she did with a pair of strange panties she found in the couch. It was so savage, we actually gagged…and then cackled. It was peak petty.

Growing up, it seems that Michel’le was taught not only to tolerate domestic violence, but also that it was up to her as the victim to fix things. The women in her life told her that if a man hits her, it’s up to her to calm him down so he doesn’t hit her anymore. Do whatever you have to do to keep the man.

Keep that in mind while you think about the choices Michel’le made with her men. From the beginning it seemed like she was a simple, sweet girl who got caught up with the wrong guys for entirely too long.

Just like with every couple, things were great for Dre and Michel’le in the beginning (despite a terrible first encounter). Dre was charming and gentle with her, but things began to take a turn around the time that she found out he had five kids. Yikes.

Then came the drinking and the money and the fame. With the fame came women, which caused even more tension in the relationship as she found out about his affairs. However, things didn’t go all the way left until one night when he came home and woke her up by repeatedly punching her in the face. And then she comforted him when he started to cry despite the fact that she was bleeding all over her bed. None of this would make sense to a lot of women now, but she’d been conditioned from an early age to accept this abuse and hide her bruises.

It wasn’t the last time he’d put his hands on her. According to Surviving Compton, he only briefly stopped beating her while she was pregnant with their son.

At this point, Dre and Michel’le were reminding us of a gangsta rap Ike and Tina. The relationship was extremely volatile and he’d go off on her for the slightest offense (real or imagined) to his fragile ego. But you can color us surprised that the other members of NWA and their manager Jerry Heller weren’t complicit in the abuse. They often stood up to Dre about it, but that didn’t keep him from manhandling her.

Things got so bad between her and Dre that she began to self medicate with prescription pills and alcohol. It went from being something she did occasionally to numb the pain of her abuse to a constant crutch.

You almost felt powerless to help her because watching this reminds us so much of other women that find themselves psychologically stuck in abusive relationships. You know what it’s like to see a man draining the life and spirit from a woman you care about. No matter what you do, no matter how bad she knows things are, she just won’t leave. And the thing that Michel’le pointed out was the victims sometimes don’t know why they stay with their abusers. They can’t think of any reason they would have stuck around.

At her lowest point with Dre, Suge stepped in to help Michel’le get clean by sending her to rehab. By the time, she came out she was over Dre and his mess. We still can’t believe Dre hit on her after he had already married another woman. It showed that he still believed he could have Michel’le, and he was offended at the idea of her not allowing him to keep her as a mistress. Talk about ego!

Instead, Michel’le found herself falling for Suge after shaking off her initial impression of him. She said that when she first met Suge, she “felt a surge of pure evil” from his immediate circumference (*sip*).

And just in case anyone was wondering why she hooked up with Suge despite her intuition about him, she laid out all of the pros and cons of being with him over Dre. Let her tell it, all Dre was offering was a good time in bed. Suge, however, was giving her kindness and opportunity. According to Michel’le, their connection had nothing to do with getting revenge on Dre, and she wasn’t attracted to him because of his money.

But just like with Dre, Suge‘s kindness eventually ran out. And he replaced it with a death grip on her existence and intimidation from behind bars. Suge had such a powerful hold on Michel’le that he managed to strong arm her into a false marriage and becoming the figurehead of Death Row Records while he was in lockup.

Somehow, when all of his shenanigans were uncovered, Michel’le found the courage to stand up to the boogeyman of hip-hop. Then the movie was just over. Surviving Compton ended on Michel’le finding her own power, but it was a very abrupt ending. In a way, it feels like the movie ended in the middle of the story. That aside, this was still a pretty solid biopic.

We give Surviving Compton 4 teacups out of 5!

When the N.W.A. biopic, Straight Out Of Compton came out in theaters last year, its widespread praise was punctuated by those who noted the film conveniently left out the abusive relationship N.W.A tended to have with women. Abuse of women by men like Dr. Dre and Suge Knight is no secret- in fact, some might remember that Dre even publicly acknowledged it himself.

Here’s Dr. Dre’s Reaction To Michel’le Claiming He Was Physically Abusive

31st Annual Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony - Press Room

Anticipation is high for the upcoming Michel’le biopic, Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le, set to air on Lifetime this weekend — but if Dr. Dre has his way, it’ll never see the light of day.

The rap mogul is threatening to sue Sony Pictures if the made-for-TV movie airs, because it depicts him as an abusive woman beater.

Starring Rhyon Nicole Brown as singer Michel’le, the film tells the story of her relationship with Dr. Dre, with whom she had a courtship in the late ’80s to early ’90s and shares a child. According to Michel’le, throughout the relationship she suffered physical abuse at the hands of the producer. It’s a story that Michel’le says was left out of the 2015 hit movie, Straight Outta Compton.

According to TMZ, Dre denies any abuse and his legal team has sent a cease and desist letter to Sony Pictures. The letter reportedly states that Dre and Michel’le dated 30 years ago and during the time, she never hinted at abuse or violent behavior. The letter also claims that Michel’le never filed a police report or sought medical attention.

Michel’le says there’s a perfectly legit reason for that. “I stayed because it was normal,” she said on The Wendy Williams Show on October 3. “After the first hit, you don’t think they’re going to do it again. I didn’t call the police because I didn’t want him to go to jail. All the men around me were always going to jail and be gone for years and I didn’t think that was a good idea.”

Trailers and an early screening of the film show Dr. Dre’s character as extremely violent — attacking Michel’le as she records a song and even punching her in the stomach in front of a group of people.

Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le is scheduled to air Saturday, October 15 on Lifetime. Let’s see if it happens.

Monster's Beats By Dr. Dre 'Sound Matters' Listening Session

Dr. Dre was cuffed outside of his Malibu mansion on Monday, but it turns out all is well: the D.A. has officially rejected the case.

As we previously reported, the famed hip-hop producer was accused of pulling a gun on a motorist blocking his driveway. But according to TMZ, no gun was recovered from the scene of the alleged crime.

The site reports:

Law enforcement sources tell us the L.A. County District Attorney has already rejected the case for insufficient evidence. As we first reported … cops say they found NO gun on Dre after searching him Monday at his Malibu mansion.

Our sources close to Dre weren’t the least bit surprised by the D.A.’s decision since the whole case was “ridiculous.” TMZ broke the story, a motorist who was blocking Dre’s driveway off PCH insisted on making a citizen’s arrest, claiming Dre pulled the weapon during a verbal dispute.

Justice is served. Check out the Life & Times of Dre in the gallery below.

Dr. Dre Handcuffed Outside His Malibu Home After Man Accuses Him Of Pointing Gun

An Alternative View Of The Premiere Of Universal Pictures And Legendary Pictures' 'Straight Outta Compton'

Rapper and entrepreneur Dr. Dre was cuffed  outside of his Malibu home on Monday after an apparent road rage incident.

Sources close to the Hip-Hop icon told TMZ  that when Dre arrived at his home there was a car parked in his driveway. Dre requested that the man move, which he did, but not before yelling obscenities at the rapper.

Dre then pulled out his phone to record the verbal attack, but the man asserted that Dre had, in fact, pulled out a gun, saying, “Here we go again, another black guy with a gun.”

The man then called the police, who arrived at the scene and promptly cuffed Dre.  They searched the mogul and found nothing, so they quickly uncuffed him.

The man, however, was adamant in his claim of seeing a handgun, and decided to file a report.

This case will now go to the District Attorney who will decide whether or not there is a legitimate case against the rapper.  If the reports are at all accurate, it is unlikely any charges will be filed.

It seems most likely that the unknown aggressor attempted to use race to victimize himself, when he was in fact the one in the wrong.
