The rapper turned music legend has addressed the allegations of physically abusing women during his rise in the group N.W.A.
If you recall, hip-hop journalist Dee Barnes and former R&B singer Michel’le, recently stated that Dr. Dre assaulted them and it wasn’t released on the N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton.
Dr. Dre gave an in-depth apology through The New York Times saying, “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.”
Dre specifies that he’s been married for 19 years and every day, he’s working to be a better man for his family in which he seeks for guidance along the way.
He later continues with “I’m doing everything I can so I never resemble that man again. 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.”
Apple, since then has also issued the following statement:
“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.”
