Michel’le went to Instagram Monday (October 17) to reveal Winfrey hit her up.
A few days ago, Michel’le’s Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge, Michel’le biopic aired on Lifetime.
I don't know where to begin… the #woman writing to you now is an evolved version of what you will all see tomorrow. It will be uneasy to watch, but please understand that my #story… my #truth… my #life is incredibly beautiful now. Beautiful because of the amazing professionals that made this film a reality. Beautiful because of the friends and family I hold dear to my heart. And beautiful because of the undying support you all have shown me. I can never, in my #lifetime, thank you enough. — #LOVE, Michel'le ❤️
Last week, Michel’le addressed reports about ex-boyfriend Dr. Dre allegedly threatening to file a lawsuit if the film aired.
“Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le” depicts the singer’s past relationship with Dre — they have a 25-year-old son together — and includes her allegations of domestic violence. She insists Dre’s cease and desist letter is an empty threat because she has the truth on her side. (TMZ)
In 2015, Michel’le did not accept Dre publicly apologizing for past female abuse and claimed he only made those comments to promote his Straight Outta Compton box office hit.
“I didn’t ask for a public apology and I think if he is going to apologise he should do it individually. To just group us like we are nothing and nobody – I just don’t think it’s sincere. … He’s selling a movie. I just think its good PR at the moment. … It was a little different because we were a couple, so of course if he held me after he beat me I took that as a form of love. … I had to cover two or three black eyes for my videos, and one of the make-up ladies.” (BBC UK)
