In a statement to The New York Times, the rapper and media mogul said: “Twenty-five years ago I was a young man drinking too much and in over my head with no real structure in my life.” “However, none of this is an excuse for what I did.” “ I've been married for 19 years and every day I'm working to be a better man for my family, seeking guidance along the way. I’m doing everything I can so I never resemble that man again.” 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.” Dre’s Straight Outta Compton film has generated nearly $56 MILLION in its first week alone.

The movie is no doubt a major success for the rapper. Unfortunately, the film has dug up a nasty past for Dre. Critics have begun to question Dre on allegations that he physically abused dozens of women during his start of his career. Apple, where Dre works as a consultant, also issued a statement of their own: “Dre has apologized for the mistakes he’s made in the past and he’s said that he’s not the same person that he was 25 years ago.” “We believe his sincerity and after working with him for a year and a half, we have every reason to believe that he has changed.”

The Times recently conducted extensive interviews with the women connected to Dre during his past. Michel’le, an R&B singer, stated: “I’ve been talking about my abuse for many, many years, but it has not gotten any ears until now,” said Michel’le, who was romantically involved with Dr. Dre from the late-’80s until the mid-’90s. (They have an adult son.) During the time they spent together, Dre left “black eyes, a cracked rib and scars.” Michel’le said she never pressed charges because, “We don't get that kind of education in my culture.” She added, “Opening up and finding out there were other women like me gave me the power to speak up.” What are your thoughts on Dr. Dre's abusive past?
