Michel'le Is Unbothered by Dr. Dre's Lawsuit Threats

Michel'le Is Unbothered by Dr. Dre's Lawsuit Threats

This tell-all biopic is really going to come out.

Published October 13, 2016

Michel’le’s biopic Surviving Compton is slated for release tomorrow (October 14) and it’s definitely dropping.

Dr. Dre, who will be depicted as an abuser in the film, has already threatened to issue a cease and desist order to try to prevent the movie’s release. Michel’le, and all her dopeness, gives absolutely no, uh, care to the possibility.

During an interview with Chicago’s WGNtv, the singer decided not to respond to Dr. Dre’s proposed lawsuit and instead spoke about the film describing part of her life.

“I’m not responding to it because it’s very fresh but I think the denial is a problem. I have no comment at this moment. Him threatening to sue, because that’s what he’s doing. He’s threatening to sue,” she explained.

“That’s my truth in the movie,” Michel’le continued. “We had good and bad times like any other relationship. It was abusive at some points but we had a wonderful son together, we made great music together, had chemistry. He’s a funny guy. I’m not trying to make anyone in this movie look like they didn’t look. That’s not what this movie is about.”

During another interview with TMZ Live, Michel’le says she’s stunned by Dre’s denial of all charges of physical abuse. “My truth will stand when we get to court, if we do,” she explained when asked about her reaction to Dre’s denial. “We were never going to not tell the truth in this movie. We did allow him to have his attorney to put this little disclaimer of sorts on there saying that Dre disputes any and all of my allegations… How can he say he apologizes a year ago or so and now say it never happened?”

It is curious as to Dr. Dre’s flip-flop on this. He has yet to speak publicly without an attorney since the movie’s roll-out began. Check out the batch of Michel’le interviews about Surviving Compton below.
