Michel’le is the Next Celebrity to Get the Biopic Treatment!

We told you biopics were the current wave in Hollywood. Next on the biopic list is R&B singer and star of TVOne’s R&B Divas: LA, Michel’le.

Born Michel’le Toussaint, she has partnered with Thinkfactory Media for a scripted television biopic and a documentary centered on her life.

The current working title is “Girl From the Hood,” and the film will focus on fame, abuse and its aftermath. A network or release date have not been announced.

Michel’le, who has had relationships and children with Dr. Dre and Suge Knight, has gone record about the abuse she suffered in both relationships.

All of this comes on the heels of the box-office success that was this past summer’s Straight Outta Compton. Even though the film was critically-acclaimed, there was criticism because it did not detail Dr. Dre’s abusive past. He later released a statement apologizing to the women he hurt.
