N.W.A Rapper Dr. Dre Apologizes For Assaulting Multiple Women

N.W.A Rapper Dr. Dre Apologizes For Assaulting Multiple Women 
BHR Hollywood Reports...............Straight Outta Compton has shattered records at the box office (the film made $56.1 million in its opening weekend), but despite the overwhelming reception, the N.W.A biopic has stirred controversy for glossing over a dark chapter in Dr. Dre’s past.

 The hip-hop mogul is finally speaking out on allegations that he physically abused women.

In a statement to Reports, Dre apologized to “the women I’ve hurt” and insists that he’s changed.

“Twenty-five years ago I was a young man drinking too much and in over my head with no real structure in my life,” he said.

“However, none of this is an excuse for what I did. I’ve been married for 19 years and every day I’m working to be a better man for my family, seeking guidance along the way.

 I’m doing everything I can so I never resemble that man again.”

Dre’s statement continued:

“I’ve been married for 19 years and every day I’m working to be a better man for my family, seeking guidance along the way.

I’m doing everything I can so I never resemble that man again. I apologize to the women I’ve hurt. I deeply regret what I did and know that it has forever impacted all of our lives.”

In addition to Barnes, Reports spoke with two other woman who said they were abused by Dr. Dre: R&B singer Michel’le and Tairrie B, a rapper who shared a label with Dre in the late 1980s.
 Michel'le stated :

“I’ve been talking about my abuse for many, many years, but it has not gotten any ears until now,” said Michel’le, who was romantically involved with Dr. Dre from the late-’80s until the mid-’90s. (They have an adult son.)

During that time, she said, he was often physically abusive, hitting her with a closed fist and leaving “black eyes, a cracked rib and scars.” Michel’le said she never pressed charges because, “We don’t get that kind of education in my culture.”

 
Terrie B.
Tarrie B, whose real name is Theresa Murphy, described Dr. Dre’s reaction to her song “Ruthless Bi*ch,” in which she detailed his “very nasty” behavior towards her while she was signed to Ruthless Records, when he first heard it in a club.

“I stood up to him, and I didn’t back down,” she told the Times.

“He kept saying, ‘If you say one more word to me ...” Then, she said, “he punched me right in the mouth and again in the eye.”

Tarrie B also declined to press charges, saying, “there’s no excuse, but this was a different time.” She also said Eazy-E, the then-owner of Ruthless Records and a member of NWA with Dre, took care of her “in certain ways to be quiet.”
