Yes, this is the newest senior executive at Apple Computer.
In 1991, Dr. Dre (aka Andre Young) was successfully sued for violently attacking a defenseless woman in an LA nightclub (and then boasting about it afterwards). But that wasn’t an isolated incident: according to Dr. Dre ex-girlfriend Michel’le Toussant (better known as just Michel’le), Dre repeatedly attacked her during their multi-year relationship.
She eventually required plastic surgery on her nose to repair damage from one particularly brutal incident.
Here’s a recent interview between Michel’le and Wendy Williams on R&B Divas LA, where the conversation turned to plastic surgery and Michel’le’s obviously worked-on nose.
Michel’le: One of my boyfriends hit me and crooked it, so I had to try and straighten it and it took years because it cost a lot of money.
Wendy: One of your baby’s fathers broke your nose?
Wendy: And you stayed?
Michel’le: I stayed because my father had never told me he loved me until just the last three years, so I think I had to go back and figure that out. It’s in my book, but getting beat was love to me. Believe it or not when I got with Suge [Knight] he really didn’t beat me. I asked him, ‘Why aren’t you beating me? You don’t like me?’ I asked him that.
Wendy: Well if it isn’t Suge, then the fingers are pointing at you Dr. Dre.
Michel’le: He knows it. It was very public. It was very, very public so that wasn’t a secret.
I did five videos and we had to cover three black eyes. It seemed like the day before a video, I would get a black eye and we had to cover it. I truly, truly, truly loved him, but it was okay and I truly thought he loved me.
I didn’t take it as anything bad, nor did I grow up seeing it in my household. I finally realized that that wasn’t good, and believe it or not the person who helped me see that was Suge [Knight] who helped me see that it wasn’t a normal thing.
