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.
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?
