On Monday, Michel’le appeared on the Wendy Williams Show, promoting her new Lifetime biopic, Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Me. Michel’le discussed the years of physical abuse she allegedly suffered from Dr. Dre, along with Suge Knight. Check out a few excerpts below.
On staying in an abusive relationship with Dr. Dre:
I stayed because it was normal. 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 [would] be gone for years and I didn’t think that was a good idea. I just took it as a way of him showing me he loved me.
Suge Knight being abusive to her at one point in their relationship:
He said he would never hit me again because I was just too little. He said, ‘You’re too little for me to be hitting on.’ And, I appreciated that.
How she’ll react if Dr. Dre tries to sue her over the biopic:
Please take me because you have to do depositions and that’s when you have to tell the truth.
If she would like to return to “R&B Divas: L.A.”:
No, you know we got cancelled!
Michel’le also shares how she was not a good mother to her youngest son and her grandmother co-signed her abusive relationship, suggesting that the abuse was normal.
