Michel’le just offered a glimpse of what to expect in her upcoming Lifetime biopic, Surviving Compton, that will chronicle her life and relationships with Dr. Dre and Suge Knight.
After being completely left out of Straight Outta Compton, Michel’le decided to make a movie about her life and involvement in Ruthless Records and Death Row Records.
As an R&B singer, Michel’le hold the infamous distinction of releasing albums on both of the iconic West Coast labels. She also has a child with Dr. Dre and was married to Suge Knight eight years.
With her being connected to Eazy-E, Dre and Suge professionally and personally, this movie has the potential to take over everyone’s timelines once it hits the screen. Suge Knight has already warned Lifetime not to defame him.
After the release of Straight Outta Compton, Michel’le insisted that she wasn’t surprised that she was left out of the film, citing the domestic abuse she suffered at the hands of both men. In an interview with DJ Vlad, she said:
“I was told that I wasn’t in it, which I’m really happy about. That’s Ice Cube’s version of his life. Why would Dre put me in? I mean ’cause if they start from where they start from I was just a quiet girlfriend who got beat up and told to sit down and shut up.”
Well it appears as if she will not be sitting down and shutting up any longer. Check out the brief, but intense teaser about the woman who “knows the truth” about the men who changed Hip-Hop.
