Watch the Explosive Trailer for Michel’le’s Biopic “Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le”!
Last year, during Straight Outta Compton‘s record-setting box office run, the film had its share of criticism from those who wanted to know why certain aspects of Dr. Dre‘s life were left out of the film. Most notably, his well-documented assaults of Dee Barnes, Tarrie B and ex-girlfriend, Michel’le, ceased to exist on the big screen.
Even though Michel’le was open about her abusive experiences with both ex-boyfriend, Dre, and ex-husband, Suge Knight on TVOne’s “R&B Divas,” people still wanted to know more about her life and career. The singer, known for her song, “Something In My Heart,” has a child with both Dre and Knight.
Her story is being brought to the small screen courtesy of Lifetime. Michel’le’s biopic, Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge Knight & Michel’le, will premiere on the network October 15 at 8 PM EST.
The film chronicles her early days of getting her singing career started and the abuse she suffered in both relationships. Actress Rhyon Nicole Brown stars as the singer in this tumultuous tale.
