Dr Dre apology

In response to mounting pressure from Apple, Inc., serial woman beater Dr. Dre issued a real apology to the women he viciously assaulted over the years.

The arrogant music producer, whose real name is Andre Young, released a statement blaming alcohol for his brutal assault on journalist Denise "Dee" Barnes, singer Michel'le, and others.

“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 in a statement to the New York Times. “However, none of this is an excuse for what I did.”

Young is accused of backhanding most of the women in his life. Most notably, in 1991, Young choked, punched and stomped Barnes in a nightclub restroom after she aired an interview with former NWA member Ice Cube on her hip hop TV show.

Dee Barnes and Dr Dre

Barnes recalled the savage beating in an article she wrote for Gawker.com.

"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."

Young's apology comes as the LA Times reports that the violence he inflicted upon Barnes was included in the original screenplay for the biopic Straight Outta Compton. Guess who made them take it out of the film?

      what is the purpose if he is not going to be convicted for the crime?

    • SameoleJ

      Cues Jamie Foxx......Blame it on the aaaaa-aaaaa-aaaaa-alcohol. So was he drunk all day/every day, since he Dee wasn't the only one he assaulted. Poor Alcohol....takes the blame for all the bad things and never gets any credit for the great things it produces.

    • mzwhang90210

      I love that lil face!!

    • Just Keya

      .....Before I say this I want to say that In NO WAY SHAPE OR FORM do I think beating a woman is correct. Now. Is this what that woman wanted? An apology? Did she want the apology when she said she would NOT press charges on Dre, IF he produced her album? And then AFTER he refused, she went to the cops. Did she want this apology when he paid her the millions she asked the court for? Did she want this apology AFTER she married his friend, member of the Dogg pound, and was still interacting with him, because of her husbands business dealings? No? I'm just wondering why did she wait so long for this? And if this man was trying to kill you, and refused to say sorry, why would your HUSBAND keep working with him? It's so odd to me. But again, Dre was 100% WRONG.

    • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

      to save Apple's stock they dont want to be boycotted by women. He still doesnt care :coffee:

    • Enoughsaid2020

      I don't believe he is sorry, or reformed. Did he apologize to Michele?

    • Just Keya

      That's what I am wondering because at first she did not even want him locked up, all she wanted was an album.

    • Str8tUpMenace

      She claim she got way less than a million..so thats not true huh? Smh

      Please don't try to diminish what he did to her.

      Dubb, please come share the education. Thanks.

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      Barnes filed assault charges and brought a $22.75 million lawsuit against Dr. Dre, who pleaded no contest to the assault. He was fined $2,500, placed on two years' probation, and ordered to perform 240 hours of community service and produce an anti-violence public service announcement.[4] The lawsuit was settled out of court.[5]

    • TheRealLee

      Nothing like when a woman beater has his own daughter and other females in his family potentially experiencing that kind of abuse. It's like Jay-Z calling women bitches and hoes then proclaiming no one would ever do that with his own daughter. These people.

    • Wakando Shamar Taylor

      Ok he issued an apology is she gonna stop talkin now? i highly doubt it! this chick tryin to get paid all over again

    • OpinionHated

      I call bullchit on his apology.... a real apology would not blame age or alcohol for his actions but would have been more like I beat the brakes of that woman and there is no excuse and I wish I could turn back the hands of time but I can't so here's a $2.5 mil donation to battered women's organizations...

    • mzwhang90210

      Hey purdy!

    • Just Keya

      I don't think he is really sorry either.

    • Datsmdubya2u2

      Oh im not disputing what you said...i just read in the same article Sandra cites for this post that she says she didnt get that much money and she was blackballed from journalism and had to get various odd jobs to make it...she lying i guess

    • Just Keya

      No, no. I'm not feeling like you are disputing it, but even I want to make sure what I read from other places is correct. Either way, I'm just curious as to why now. But really he was DEAD ASS WRONG. and she did NOT deserve that.

    • Str8tUpMenace

      Heyyyyy bew!!!

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      He looks like an old dyke and I want him to stop justifying his mess...unless he has been drunk for the last 30 years.

    • Bootcampgirl

      I don't feel like his apology was genuine but I also feel like her intentions, whatever they are, aren't genuine either...#IDCreally

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      this ain't good enough for some of yall huh??
      -------------
      Meanwhile, Dre, who executive produced the movie along with his former groupmate Ice Cube, didn't shy away from talking about the abuse allegations during the Straight Outta Compton press tour, telling Rolling Stone, "I made some f--king horrible mistakes in my life.

      "I was young, f--king stupid," he continued. "I would say all the allegations aren't true—some of them are. Those are some of the things that I would like to take back. It was really f--ked up. But I paid for those mistakes, and there's no way in hell that I will ever make another mistake like that again."

    • OpinionHated

      yeah he apologized by cuffing her in her throat that's why her voice sound like a muppet....

    • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

      I hope that Dre can find it in his heart to address those ladies directly. I bet it would mean the world to them. I had to step down from my stance to boycott all things Dre cause I found Dee Barnes on Insta and she was repping Kendrick. If she ain't mad at Dre getting money then I'll keep giving it to him. I'ma see the movie again afterall. :-D

    • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

      I hope she didnt settle for under a mill on a $22.75 million suit

    • PettyEyezPrime

      His apology doesn't seem sincere and I wouldn't even want it. Making someone feel obligated to do that and it's not genuine makes no sense to me. Keep your apology!

    • Just Keya

      This about sums it up. Thank you.

    • Showtime

      Woman beaters go right alongside pedophiles in my book. You have to be a real loser to be 6'2, 225 lbs and beat up a tiny woman. That's like me as a grown woman attacking a child. It's so disgusting. NWA had and probably still have such a disgusting hate for women. I also hold F. Gary Gray responsible as he was the one who allowed the Cube diss to be aired after she begged for them not to air it. Not only that but he has been totally dismissive of the beating whenever asked about it during SOC interviews.

    • Smartypants

      Can you do the fake mole look without looking like a hoodrat?

    • OpinionHated

      that pic is not doing him any justice he looks like a woman beater.... like he would go Jeckyl and Hyde on your azz...

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      in all honesty who care who she married. I keep telling ya'll if someone whomps my ass idc HOW LONG i choose to speak on it, that is MY right. period no IDC if it was 30 years ago...no IDC is gave me 5 million or 5 dollars...I BISH will say whatever I want when I want...I see not problem and if he didn't want it brought up he should keep his hand to himself.

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      Can I ask you a hypothetical question? What if God treated us that way and brought up every sin we ever committed? He has ever right. But that's the beauty of grace.

    • SameoleJ

      I just said the same thing, not the same words, but same sentiment. When all else fails, blame alcohol and immaturity.

    • Showtime

      Don't know about the producing her album part but she said she wasn't paid a million let alone millions.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      Sure

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      What if God treated us that way and brought up every sin we ever committed? He has ever right. But that's the beauty of grace.

    • Just Keya

      Right. So if you are gonna settle out of court, how much was that beating worth? Less than a mill? GTFOH. We would of been going to court for all that.

    • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

      What color crayon are u using? :thinking:

    • Datsmdubya2u2

      I know! why didnt Dre find Cube and beat hisazz?

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      Well, that the beauty of G-D...I'm not him and he will always be better then me.

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      But isn't our goal to be Christ like and mirror his image?

    • Showtime

      Because he is a coward. Probably woulda been the Dee Barnes in that situation if he ever stepped to Cube.

    • Just Keya

      Im saying HE was wrong in every way. However, her motives...whatever. I respect your opinion.

    • Lorenzo Chaps

      And also, you have to look at Ice Cube side-ways too the more I think about it. It was Ice Cube who made the comment on Dee Barnes' show. She got beat up for simply allowing him to say something about them when she really had nothing to do with their beef. But here we are today, Dre's issuing a lighter than a feather apology that has no meaning. Ice Cube continues to sit tight lipped as if he wasn't a part of this.

      Ultimately, it all falls on Dre since he is the one who beat the brakes off that lady as all those hard legs just stood by. It's no wonder Dee Barnes didn't just go lesbian, banishing men from her life for good. Yeah, one thing has nothing to do with the other, but u get my point.

    • mzwhang90210

      lol..use one of those permanent sharpies no?

    • Just Keya

      No, Ice Cube made the comments but it was the producers of the show who took the clip and put it on the same show that NWA was on, trying to stir up some mess. You can't blame him. How would he know Dre would beat her up for that?

    • Just Keya

      Is that a Little Kim "Have a crush on you" wig on that dog?

    • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

      Keya u should see the bob *faints*

      ...Off Topic & a couple days late....

      ....Did yall see Catfish this week? This bish (Name: Hundra) had the nerve to lie about all of it and try to pull on over on MTV and had the audacity to put down one of the girls and called her "butch and d*ke" and other slurs bc she wanted a "lipstick lesbian"....Mind you Ms. Hundra (the girl who lied) is hideous inside and out & never apologized at all..talking about the WORLD needed to know she was gay...#BishNo #NotInThisWorldNorTheNext #IHateLiars
      ....someone said on another blog, "Hundra had the mindset of Bad Bish but the looks of a cockroach"... #DEAD

    • Just Keya

      OMG, that dog's hair is pressed!!! Yeesss Hunty!

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      I was good until I refreshed and saw the pic....

    • SecretVoice

      I was born in 91 so I don't recall this incident but I heard about it when his headphones were released.I bet this woman beater never thought this incident would come back to haunt him,because it sounds like he beat Ms. Barnes really bad.

      The reason I won't see the movie is because of this incident.

    • Datsmdubya2u2

      I found it hilarious that the movie made it look like Dre was standing up to Suge all the time...know he was scared of Suge till 2013 prolly still is

    • Lorenzo Chaps

      No, Suge showed up to Dre's front door demanding the masters and he handed them right over. Suge said Dre walked away from Deathrow with nothing. Absolutely nothing.

    • Just Keya

      Can I ask you a question? What about the other people in the movie? They don't deserve? Because of Dre everyone has to suffer? (no shade, it was a real question)

    • Tippie Toes

      Cube should stay quiet he doesn't have anything to do with it.

    • Datsmdubya2u2

      Thats what im saying Dre aint never stood up to Suge..not in real life

    • Lorenzo Chaps

      I keep telling folks everything you did wrong is shelved for a later date. Before you die, you will face it again.

    • Just Keya

      But see, Dre still worth million, meanwhile Suge locked up, falling out in court. I don't like Suge at all.

    • Tippie Toes

      Dre only fights girls

    • mzwhang90210

      LOL..naw chile that's lil Miss thangs real hurrrr.
      I mentioned this in the other post too..we found a new FIERCE beautician.

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      Scrappy and the Bam done called it quits. Screenshot

    • Just Keya

      Exactly. Just collect your coin and Shut up.

    • SecretVoice

      I read that F. Gary Gray was her cameraman, but he has stood silent and that silence has led to him being able to work in Hollywood.

    • Just Keya

      Well please asl Lil Miss Thang to share that number with some others. They need it.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      Yea I get it, I do...I think when you watch a man lie about ruining for life you don't really care about why ppl think your doing it.

      ""He picked me up by my hair and my ear and smashed my face and body into the wall," Barnes said in a July 1991 report in The Times.
      "Next thing I know, I'm down on the ground and he's kicking me in the
      ribs and stamping on my fingers. I ran into the women's bathroom to
      hide, but he burst through the door and started bashing me in the back
      of the head.""

    • Just Keya

      Again? So she took that big ass picture off the wall and left?

    • Tippie Toes

      Oh please!

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      So she didn't want to pull money together anymore?

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      When did he lie? He pled no contest completed his sentence and settled out of court.

    • Just Keya

      No, he found out she has none to pull together with.

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      That pic was so damn tacky.

    • SecretVoice

      Sometimes it seem as if people that do wrong to people are never held accountable. I know it's not in my power to see it, but it's good to see in this case because this dude seem like a serial woman beater.He even admitted to beating his wife too.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      Well Im confused..That looks like one of the girls who braids hair at da shop.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      Well they both aint got nathan?!?!!

    • Just Keya

      True. I still want to know what she settled for, because if in fact it was less than a mill, something aint right. Aint NO WAY IN LIFE your going to beat me up and think you can pay me a funky hundred thousand and walk away. and why would she agree to that is what I am trying to figure out.

    • Just Keya

      DEAD. Im done

    • iWasteTime

      dead

    • mzwhang90210

      LOL..will do.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      he said he pushed her through a door and that it wasn't a big deal. He settled for nothing... and he continued to beat women...

    • Lorenzo Chaps

      Yep, and even though they left it out the movie, the victims came out and spoke about it anyway. Why? Cuz Dre has yet to face what he did. Through all his success and money earned, he never stepped back and made those situations right. Contrary to popular belief, there's no "just moving on" like that. Had he properly handled it, I can assure you those women would only talk so much, if at all because they would've all made peace and want to move on. He got closure, but they didn't.

    • VDot

      Let a nigga beat my azz like that. I dont care how much he paid me, I'ma talk about it forever and always. To whoever, whenever. I don't believe in telling folks to shut up over something they've been a victim of. It's like telling a rape victim to stop talking about her rape because it makes you feel uncomfortable.

      As far as I'm concerned Dee AND Michelle and all his other victims can talk as much as they want and as loudly as they want.

      There is a reason Domestic Violence cases can't be expunged from your records (at least you can't in Ohio) - because it's a reflection of your character.

    • Just Keya

      NOPE! Girl bye. You KNOW they have nothing but VH1 checks. Scrappy don't sell records...he is an inch away from being on the No One Cares Tour, and Bambi....she is on the tour, doing what I don't know...selling hair I guess.

      Yeah, basically. Subway aint tell Jared to wiggle his jank to young girls, but u gotta know people will stop going there for the time being cuz of him. Example.

    • Just Keya

    • MS PEACHES

      Now remember when K Michelle told on Memphis beating up her people said she was crying wolf.

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      OMG really?? She DIDN'T have to settle. Whatever the amount was she agreed to it. You can't fight a battle that she clearly didn't.

    • Just Keya

      Not all of us. I said he did that shyt. I think Dre did that shyt too. AND HE WAS WRONG.

    • LuLu

      Am I missing something? Where is "I'm sorry"?!? Or even, "My bad"?!

    • Lorenzo Chaps

      I didn't and still believe her. I figured no way can she vilify that man just because and he doesn't win a defamation law suit. He's yet to win that law suit.

    • mzwhang90210

      Didn't see this epi yet..but you make it sound interesting!!

      Hey..did you see the one where the rapper Phrophet got Catfished by some fat yt girl that had been using pics of a African American supermodel?

    • MS PEACHES

      lmao

    • Its Me

      Guess who made them take it out of the film?
      ^^^^^^^^^^^^
      This was the only part about Dre life they took out?

      "Other scenes that were left out from earlier versions of the story: Dre being shot four times in the leg, his house catching fire during a wild pool party, a jail scene and a graphic flashback of his younger brother in the fight that claimed his life."

      *Exits* so I can: finish my report, log off of work, and go to the tequila bar.

    • Str8tUpMenace

      I just read that the cop that was investigating Biggie and Pac's murders died suddenly (Detective Poole). He was on a mission to expose the LAPD's corrupt azz ways, and solving their murders.

    • SummerBaby

      Y'all know how I feel about DV, but I still saw the movie & this didn't make me want to protest or boycott. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but if you gonna be outraged by one act be outraged at everybody. I know some of y'all still bumping R.Kelly, watching Charlie Sheen ?

    • VDot

      Yup, I agree with all of this. You can't shut me up from telling MY story.

      And yeah, regardless, I just may have motives to help me make a come up. Especially if I've been blackballed because of an azz whooping I took, and ALL yall niggas involved (Cube, Dre, Gary) are millionaires 500+ times over....shhiiiddddd. Got me fugged up. Mess around and auction off the bloody clothes I was wearing when I took that azz beating. Straight Outta Licks.

    • Just Keya

      He is not going to either.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      Im not getting into with you. I can't understand and that's fine.

    • Tippie Toes

      Girl a company I used to work for hired someone in my position for more pay and I went to HR they struck a deal gave me severance and I wasn't supposed to file unemployment.

    • Its Me

      Did she get on that bike and pedal the hell on someplace?

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      That was so damn funny. My husband said he lame for even being on the show..

    • Lorenzo Chaps

      Was he really? Wooooooooooooow I never knew that. I like Gary, who was once engaged to Elise Neal. Covering up stories and remaining silent aint cool. When something happens to him, he'll want the world to stop, but remember, you will always get back what you put out.

    • Just Keya

      The interview that started the whole thing.

      ...Hey Booooo...its on Mr. Yardie's blog....I watched it last night before bed & was pizzed at her....I can't stand liars and unapologetic people....let me know what you think when you see it...

      ...ps-why your gavi's hair look better than mine???? #WHY???

    • Tippie Toes

      He isn't a man he is DL there is no excuse whatsoever for his barbaric violent treatment toward that woman. He might as stfu and just hold his head down in shame

    • Lorenzo Chaps

      Tippie he was the one who made the shady comments on Dee Barnes' show about Eazy nem. It's like me talking crazy about your husband/brother, then bam, they come get in your ass for it and I'm nowhere to be found. But because I said it to you in front of so many people, they get u for it.

      Cube probably also thinking he didnt have anything to do with it. Now I want sm1 to specifically ask him about this incident, present day. Be sure to add the assault came as a result of what YOU SAID on her show. I agree, he can't control what Dre did, but it started with what Cube said. Dee said nothing, she was just the host.

    • Tippie Toes

      Yes apparently from a heart attack - I smell foul play

    • Just Keya

      The only thing I don't agree with in your statement is Cube. I can't see how it's his fault. Gary was the one who put it on the NWA segment when NWA came to do the interview and it was Gray who gave the ok to air it. Ice Cube was on a whole different segment. Ice Cube did not know Dre was gonna beat her up.

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      Yep. That's what she said.

    • Lorenzo Chaps

      editing?

    • MissyJ

      She already back pedaled in her deposition. On LHH he beat her ass under oath well I had some scratches.... I don't believe her at all

    • <3 LoveDreamLive <3

      I watch it randomly but this one made me so mad... she was just nasty....her entire demeanor... :( surprisingly catfishing is still an issue...

    • jeniefrumdabloc™

      Dr. Dre.....................

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      BYE fool!!!!! Let me go be nosey on her page to see what she saying..

    • Just Keya

      She was the one who said that! She said it was Gary who did all that. That's why if anyone else is to blame, it's Gary. Not Cube.

    • Its Me

      The Director of Straight Outta Compton: "Gray was also the cameraman on Pump It Up and he shot Barnes' interview with Ice Cube that supposedly led her to be the victim of Dre's assault. The interview was shot soon after Cube left N.W.A. and showed him firing some nasty words at his former groupmates. Barnes pleaded with Gray to edit out the inflammatory footage -- not to protect herself, but to prevent violence among the group -- but Gray didn't listen."

    • mzwhang90210

      LOL will do, thanks.

      Umm..if you haven't seen that epi where Phrophet got Catfished by that yt chick..I hope the pic below doesn't spoil it for you. (Check out the expression on his face)

    • Just Keya

      You would think that after this show has been on this long, people would know better.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      I just don't understand why anyone would I have such a problem with her speaking. She is not lying. My mother went through that and he acted like it wasn't THAT bad...she had a hard time getting ppl to even believe her. So she keep her mouth shut and that mess is still hurts her bc NO ONE would listen, so idc if she settle or its been 30 years. He has a pattern and I'm glad ppl can see it.

      Oh they will. They will need a story line, or they will get back together as soon as it is time to film. smdh

      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 in a statement to the New York Times. “However, none of this is an excuse for what I did.”
      In this ENTIRE paragraph, the words I'm Sorry DO NOT APPEAR hence, he isn't sorry. That sounds more like an EXCUSE to me; I'm just sayin...

    • Tippie Toes

      But he didn't make Dre do that to her. ION think if Cube knew he was going to hit her I actually think he would have warned her had he known. Dre is a mitch for doing that.

    • jeniefrumdabloc™

      At the end of the day ... people can change .... but not many do ijs

    • mzwhang90210

      Right.
      I guess he figures that out of court settlement was apology enough. SMH

      Why? You just repeated everything she said earlier this week.

    • Just Keya

      SO damn true.

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      Rasheeda done showed up to Sky house.. These hoes taking this IG thugging too far..

    • nekkkyj

      She waited 25 years to bring the story back up if he beat me like that i would have been talking everyday do she want money from the movie

    • MissyJ

      On topic... If a woman come forward and say Dre beat my tail smoove from Monday to Sunday in 2015 hell I'll take it back to 2010. Then I'll have some fcuks to give. But you still worried about what happened in nineteen AND ninety one?? No buddy. People do bad things, wrong, mean things, illegal things, drunk things but I'll be dayumed if folks still wanna hold me to who I was and what I did 25 years ago. Outside of being a straight up pedophile or sociopath you can make changes and do better.

    • Tippie Toes

      Are you talking about Rasheeda on the show I'm lost

    • Just Keya

      To do what? Destroy her face with that low class make up she selling?! And how Rasheeda get involved? Are they still taping LAHH?

    • MissyJ

      Nawl the other one I think

    • OvertheMississippi

      If there was a settlement reached, I am willing to bet that there was a stipulation or clause that she can't talk about the case.

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      Rasheeda Ali..from NY

    • VDot

      Well Sandra, left off this part -

      He added: “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.

      So many women, he had to clump them all together and just address them as "the women"

      She's supposed to be with that football player.

    • OvertheMississippi

      I have never seen a case with an expiration date. This is why Cosby wants his money back from one of the ladies.

    • Just Keya

      whats her IG?

      Shiddd. You remember an azz whooping like that.

      I still talk ish to my mama about the azz whopping she gave my sister 20 years ago. It wasn't even ME getting the whooping, but we still talk about it from time to time.

    • mzwhang90210

      In that pic uptop he looks like he just got finished beating on some woman. "I was young.." Shut up Dre.
      (Ain't nobody callin you no damn "Dr" either..swole head fuggah)

    • Texaspaine

      He look like he drank a lot

    • VDot

      *scrolls up to look at pic*

      Bwhahahahaaha!!

    • MissyJ

      I didn't say forget about it. I still remember my worse beating from my deddy too but I not make him about to be a villain years later. Just like I'm sure you discuss the whooping in more funny terms now not call your mama a child abuser or something.

    • Lorenzo Chaps

      I don't think they're holding him to the beatings vs holding him to never making it right, apologizing, etc. Like I said in another post, Dre got his closure by moving on with his life. His victims didn't get any closure. Dee Barnes is known more for the ass whoopin she got over anything else as far as I know. BeatsbyDre oh the irony.

    • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

      THIS

    • WHITTYwithWORDS

      Um sky did NOT need that close up.

    • VDot

      Naw her azz was an abuser. LOL! Naw, I'm just kidding.

      My point is, we can't police what people talk about. Folks are asking her about it, because it happened. You can't erase history. History tends to be retold by the winners. It just so happens the loser in this case is still around, to share the other side of history.

    • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

      NOT SO BLIND ITEM CONFIRMED...

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

    • Just Keya

      SO , if I go by the times posted, Rasheeda came to the door, and Sky aint come to the door. Sky waits for rasheeda to leave and then comes out and post a video. Man bye. You saw and heard her ass outside. They both look mighty stupid though. And sky looks rough. good lord. And why Rasheeda put that girls address on IG. smdh

    • imright

    • Smith Jane

      I heard that the real reason Dre attacked her was because she gave him an std and spit on him?

    • BubblingBrownSuga

      Me either. And I stopped liking Michael Jackson when he stopped liking all things black (except music, dance and dollars). I wasn't one of his fools.

    • the guest

      Yes she did have to settle to save her life. She was in hiding for her own protection. She was getting death threats for pressing charges. That was a different time.

    • the guest

      She was blacklisted and she did nothing but get assaulted.

    • the guest

      Word.

    • the guest

      Well that beating destroyed her career and prospects.

    • Mrs. (Asexual) Elmo

      Exscuses, exscuses.......

    • mzwhang90210

      From the mouth of Dee....

      "It was that interview that was the supposed cause of Dre’s attack on me, as many of his groupmates attested. My life changed that night.

      I suffer from horrific migraines that started only after the attack. I love Dre’s song “Keep Their Heads Ringin”—it has a particularly deep meaning to me. When I get migraines, my head does ring and it hurts, exactly in the same spot every time where he smashed my head against the wall. People have accused me of holding onto the past; I’m not holding onto the past. I have a souvenir that I never wanted. The past holds onto me.

      There’s a myth that I was paid so well by the settlement I received from Dre that I’d never have to work again. People think I was paid millions, when in reality, I didn’t even get a million, and it wasn’t until September of 1993. He and his lawyers dragged their feet the whole way. He stopped coming to court, they kept postponing it. I was tired, and, toward the end, pregnant, but I still tried to show up for everything.

      And I never thought I was going to have to stop doing what I loved for my job. That was the furthest thing from my mind. People ask me, “How come you’re not on TV anymore?” and “How come you’re not back on television?” It’s not like I haven’t tried. I was blacklisted. Nobody wants to work with me. They don’t want to affect their relationship with Dre."

    • Queen Negus

      No I think he is gay. I heard Tupac's had caught him bending another man over .. Y'all got the pic.

    • Vagirl

      he must really feeling the heat to make a statement..Dre not messing up that Beat money...he saw how fast they took Bill down

    • mzwhang90210

      The only reason she's talking now is because shes being asked due to the release of this movie. As far as I can tell...reporters are approaching her.

      According to her she still has migraines. All these years later. Is not talking about her migraines going to make them stop happening?

      Dre didn't just slap this woman, or merely shove her (things that are terrible in and of themselves) ...Dre savagely beat Dee..then tried to dunk her head in a toilet.

      IMO..that's why so many abusers beat women. They know that some people are going to side with them..no matter what. (Like the dudes that held the crowd back time and time again...while Dre viciously attacked Dee. Repeatedly)

      As a survivor of horrific domestic violence myself... I can tell you that her voice should only cease..when dudes stop beatin women down in the streets.

    • SecretVoice

      Yes I believe I saw in the article Ms. Barnes wrote for Gawker.

    • SecretVoice

      For someone that "claims" that you feel beating a woman is incorrect,you sure do blame the victim. In your entire rant,you blame the victim and then at the end,you have the nerve to say Dr. Dre was 100% wrong.In your entire diatribe,you lay 1% on him and 99% on the victim.

      You just sound like some sort of groupie making excuses.

    • SecretVoice

      Right...I can't stand women like that poster.They always lay the blame on women while giving the guy a pass.

    • SecretVoice

      Grace is something that is earned..........

      This muscle face cat Dre is only "fake" apologizing because he can no longer hide behind his cowardice.He is only apologizing for monetary reasons.

    • Wakando Shamar Taylor

      That what she say but maybe she just wasnt good at her job in the first place! Dre didnt have that much reach to blackball her like that back then he was just getting started like her! she could have went in another Field of journalism she didnt have to stay in hip hop

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      What bible do you read? Grace isn't earned. You can't earn grace.

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      Because I am a true Christian I have sympathy for most people and I never once asked anyone to have sympathy for him. My question was hypothetical and direct to one person. Maybe you should read to comprehend and not to just respond. Now God bless you real good.

    • Li

      Well first of all, Dre needs to STFU, like Bill Cosby, and let the women talk. That happened years ago. And the woman received a settlement; obvioiusly, he didn't get a confidentiality agreement or she wouldn't be talking.

    • Li

      He already paid the woman a settlement. Next thing we know, Gloria Alred will be in the picture.

    • Li

      The attorney takes their cut.

    • Dee

      All of this support for Dre meanwhile right after Chris Brown's apology EVERYBODY STILL KEPT DRAGGING HIM. No support at all to turn things around and now folks wonder why chris can't get it together. The masses didn't have HIS back. He had no hope and still doesn't. I don't understand why the double standard with these two. Dre beat MULTIPLE women and never acknowledged it or apologized until it may affect his $ (YEARS LATER) and yet... Support from the masses. I don't get it. Just sayin..

    • Kiki R.

      You only had to listen to their music and how they talked about women to know this would not have been surprising. I remember hearing about this when it happened. Maybe it was surprising to her back then because she was cool with the crew, not that I'm condoning it, but really how much respect did they have for women back then to rap about them in such depraved ways?

    • tanya30060

      You can bet if he beat Becky like that, Apple would drop his ass like a hot potatoe

      Please don't make this into a race issue. Truth be told, if the women had been white they would've shot Dre and gotten off scott free claiming battered woman syndrome. The world aint fair, but that's life in America.

    • Meme81

      Of course they would. But that's because the entertainment/ corporate world is Godless...that includes being racist.

    • Meme81

      Gloria probably has her programmed on speed dial already. She just has to put her on the back burner while she sues Cosby.

      A cracka? *smh* That word always throws me off for some reason. It's equally as ridiculous as the n-word.

    • SecretVoice

      The only people that have issues with her speaking are male/female groupies of Dre. The thing that both sets have in common is hatred for black women.

      Only a sorry woman would make excuses for a woman beater.

    • SecretVoice

      Girl bye!....You are a sorry excuse of a woman in my view. You sit up here and make all kinds of excuses for a dude that beats women including his wife!!!

      You sit on your tired self and speak of what these MEN don't deserve while ignoring that his female VICTIMS also did not DESERVE to meet his fists.

      Dee Barnes does not deserve to be dealing with chronic headaches because of his fit of rage...Michel'le does not deserve to feel suicidal. The other victims did not deserve to be beaten either by him and there's no telling what they are dealing with.The dude has been beating women for decades,

      Done!

      He is aging horribly and fast, he will pay for what he has done in some form or fashion. It doesn't always come in the form of money. He only apologize because of the movie. Too much time has passed where he could have faced it, own it and right a wrong. Only grown ass men do that.

      All you have to understand is look who the bish have in her avatar and that will convey, the type of mindset she has.

    • Elevated Soul

      Good point....Women that care about women being treated with respect would never make excuses for a guy that beat women down.

      All of the sudden Dr. Dre apologizes.He's only doing that because a lot of women buy tickets to the movies.

    • Elevated Soul

      Bottom line is that she shouldn't have been blacklisted because a punk azzzz bish beat her up.

      Dr. Dre is a repressive homosexual that take out his frustrations on women.He even beat a chick name "Tarrie B" or something like that.She was an artist of Easy E according to what I was told.There are other women as well.

      Upstanding men don't make excuses for B.A.N.S that beat women.He even admit to beating on his manly looking wife.

    • Elevated Soul

      LMAO - Did I detect a read?

      Seriously.When Chris Brown down Rihanna,many women blamed her and still do.I will bet you that person did too.Many Dre defenders especially women seem *mad*,that Dee Barnes and others are finally speaking out.

      I watched the show R&B Divas L.A. and that's when I heard more about Dee Barnes because Michel`e was dealing with suicidal issues with one issue being Dr. Dre beating her up.I would read comments and Dee Barnes name kept coming up and I remember my father telling me that Dr. Dre beat women.
