Michel'le tell her story about surviving compton! Appearing tonight on Lifetime Television network!

By Alexa Cruz

Michel’le survived Compton – but it took the Lifetime movie “Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le” for her to realize it.

The one-time R&B star (1989’s “No More Lies”) dated Dr. Dre in the early 1990s, as he and N.W.A. turned into superstars (they had a son in 1991) and later married Death Row Records mogul Suge Knight, with whom she had a daughter in 2002 (they divorced in 2005).

But despite her presence in their inner circle at the time (she was signed to N.W.A. member Eazy-E’s Ruthless Records, and Dre produced her album), Michel’le was conspicuously absent from last year’s hit film “Straight Outta Compton.”
