Michel’le is clearing the air about her life with hip-hop mogul Dr. Dre. Recently, the R&B Divas LA star sat down with VladTV and opened up about how she survived the abuse she suffered being with Dr. Dre for over a decade of her life, having to take him to court for child support for their son, and how after enduring five black eyes over the years, he almost shot her after a night of partying. Peep some of the excerpts.
On having a child with Dr. Dre:
He’s 24, right at the peak of my, I had just, I went on the Hammer Tour and found out I was 6 weeks pregnant and we had two more months to go. I had to come home drop that baby and go out and finish off some more shows and I became the stay at home mommy. Which made my career go skuuuurrrrrrr.
On having a baby while trying to be a star in the music industry:
I don’t advise it, if you wanna be in this business, the baby can take up to a year and a half off, you wanna bond with your child, so it can take some yeah…”
On her relationship with Dr. Dre after having their son:
It became more estranged, because now he was able to just get up and go where I couldn’t do that anymore. I couldn’t follow him anymore. I think it became more disrespectful because if you’re not there somebody else will be. He just, I don’t know, I don’t want to say he wasn’t ready to have a baby because he had already just had a baby when I met him, he had already had two women pregnant, so I was like what was I thinking?
When I met him, one was in the belly and then uh one had just dropped. So, there were two babies born within a year or so apart and we had just started dating. He had three already, one had just came out and one was in the belly, that was five, mine made number six. While I was with him he had 2 more. I know, I know. I just guess I cared — this doesn’t make sense now. He has 2 with his current wife then he adopted hers, so that makes 3 and if I’m not mistaken there’s a couple more that came too.
On the abuse allegations with Dr. Dre:
I had 5 black eyes. I was getting dragged on the floor, shot at, yeah. We partied and I guess I don’t know what I always did and I always said, it couldn’t have been just me, so one night we was arguing and he went and got the gun and I just made it through the bathroom door
