After the biopic of Michel’le Toussaint claiming Dr Dre beats her up, another man from the super producer’s past surfaces. Suge Knight claims Dr Dre tried to have him murdered twice.
More popularly known as Michel’le, Dr Dre’s ex-wife, in partnership with Sony Pictures, released a biopic of the R&B singer last October 15. Surviving Compton: Dre, Michel’le & Suge is about Michel’le side of the story where she recalls that Dr Dre beats her during their relationship.
The hip-hop icon and producer denies truth on Michel’le’s claim. His legal team even threatened to sue Sony Pictures and Michel’le for defamation of character.
Unfortunately for Dr Dre, another Compton character emerges with a different claim. Suge Knight, co-founder of Death Row Records and ex of Michel’le, is now suing Dr Dre for allegedly hiring men to kill him.
Currently, Knight is in prison for murder charges. In January 2015, he ran over Terry Carter who is also a producer. However, Knight claims to have done it out of self-defense from Cle Sloan.
According to Knight, Dr Dre was mastermind of the 2015 case of attempted murder on his life. Additionally, he also claims Dr Dre responsible for the Chris Brown 2015 shooting incident where Knight was shot seven times.
Dr Dre Beats Net Worth Affected
Though Dr Dre’s lawyers are confident that the allegations will not hold since he has not met with Knight in 20 years, his team is not worried. “Given that Dre has had zero interaction with Suge since leaving Death Row Records in 1996, we hope that Suge’s lawyer has lots of malicious prosecution insurance,” Dr Dre’s lawyer shared with Rolling Stone.
Nonetheless, if the case does push through and if found in any way guilty, Dr Dre Beats, music, family life and net worth will be greatly affected. Compared to Michel’le claims, Knight’s will cause more damage to the millionaire.
Knight also claims that he was promised $1 Billion for Dr Dre Beats. The report says that Dr Dre committed 30% of Apple’s purchase of Beats amounting to a total of $3 Billion. However, Dr Dre’s legal team has also dismissed the claims.
To date, nothing has been proven from Knight’s claims. On the other hand, the hip hop star has also kept quiet recently regarding threats to sue Michel’le.
