Straight Outta Compton is one of the biggest success stories at the box office this year, so it's no surprise the film is attracting its fair share of controversy.

Now, Eazy-E's manager Jerry Heller is one of the people to come out of the woodworks pointing a finger at the N.W.A biopic, which has already soared past $100 million at the box office.


Played by Paul Giamatti in the film, Heller was an integral part of the group's success, though he was accused of preying on their lack of knowledge of the music industry and using it to his advantage.

Heller, who says he was not consulted about the film, finally bought a ticket to see the flick, and was none too pleased about the way he was portrayed. "I did see it on Saturday," he told The Los Angeles Times, "and I’m still not willing to comment right now on that movie because I think sooner or later it may be part of an ongoing litigation."
