Last year, as the world watched Straight Outta Compton break box-office records, those who were actually a part of the story were left wondering why much of the the physical abuse that N.W.A. member Dr. Dre inflicted upon the women was left out. One who suffered abuse at the hands of the rapper was R&B singer Michel’le, and now she is ready for the world to see her side of the story in a new biopic for Lifetime.
Shortly after the release of Straight Outta Compton, Michel’le stated she was working on her own movie, which would tell her story about her relationships with both Dr. Dre and Suge Knight. Now the TV network has released the first trailer for the film, which will premiere in October.
Titled Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Me, the role of Michel’le will be played by Rhyon Nicole Brown from ABC Family’s Lincoln Heights. Curtis Hamilton will play Dre, and R. Marcos Taylor will reprise his role in Straight Outta Compton and play Suge again.
