Legendary producer Dr. Dre has his legal team ready to do battle with Sony Pictures if they release the film, “Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le.”
According to TMZ, the movie depicts Dre as a woman beater who physically assaulted then-girlfriend Michel’le, and at one point pulling a gun on her.
Dre vehemently denies the accusations that date back to his relationship with the singer 30 years ago..
A cease-and-desist letter fired off to Sony by Dre’s lawyers points out that Michel’le never filed a police report or sought medical treatment from the alleged beatings.
“Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le” is set to air October 15 at 8/7c on Lifetime.
