"He's selling a movie. I just think it's good PR at the moment," singer Michel'le told BBC Radio.
"I didn't ask for a public apology and I think if he is going to apologize he should do it individually," Michel'le said.
"To just group us like we are nothing and nobody, I just don't think it's sincere," she said. "Treat us like we have names."
Michel'le, the 44-year-old star of R&B Divas: Los Angeles, lived with Dre -- and suffered the most beatings -- in the 1980s and '90s. She and Dre, 50, have a grown son together.
Journalist Denise "Dee" Barnes was a little more forgiving.
"Bravo, Andre. Humility is true self-knowledge," she wrote in a 2nd editorial for Gawker.com.
In January 1991, a furious Dre cornered Barnes at a record release party and savagely beat for airing an interview in which former NWA member Ice Cube criticized NWA and producer The D.O.C. on her hip hop TV show, Pump It Up!
In her first editorial for Gawker.com, Barnes recalled the violent beating.
“It was so caustic that when Dre was trying to choke me on the floor of the women’s room in Po Na Na Souk, a thought flashed through my head: ‘Oh my god. He’s trying to kill me.’ He had me trapped in that bathroom; he held the door closed with his leg. It was surreal. ‘Is this happening?’ I thought.”
She now says she believes Dre is remorseful.
"I hope he meant it. I hope he represents these words in his life. I hope that after all these years, he really is a changed man."
