Michel’le On Dr. Dre As A Parent
“I will say that my children’s fathers (I have a …son with Dr. Dre and a 10 year old daughter with Suge Knight) do love and take care of their children. They are great fathers and they are there for them. It’s not always monetary. It’s about being there.” -Michel’le, TV One
Michel’le On Learning She Was Pregnant With Dr.Dre’s Son
“I went on the Hammer tour and found out I was 6 weeks pregnant and we had two more months to go. I had to come home and drop that baby and finish out some more shows and then I became a stay-at-home mommy. Which made my career go *makes car screeching noise* I don’t advise it if you want to be in this business. The baby can take a year and a half off. You want to bond with your child.”
Michel’le Details How Relationship Changed After Their Son Was Born
“It became more strained because he was able to get up and just go where I couldn’t do that anymore. I couldn’t follow him anymore. And I think it became more disrespectful because then, if you’re not there, somebody else will be. I don’t want to say he wasn’t ready to have a baby but he had already just had a baby. When I met him he had two women pregnant… When I met him one was in the belly and then one had just dropped. So there were two babies born within a year or so apart. And we had just started dating…So three already, one had just came out and one was in the belly. That was five. Mine made number six. While I was with him he had two more. I know! I know! I don’t know I just guess I cared for him. I know it doesn’t make sense now.”
Michel’le also explained to VLAD TV what led to Dr. Dre firing a shot at her.
“We partied…and I guess I don’t know what I always did. And I always say it couldn’t have just been me. So one night we was arguing, he went and got the gun and I just made it through the bathroom door and he shot at me and missed me by this (holds up measurement fingers) much. He shot at me. And you know what I did? I left the bullet in the hole. It was in the door and then it went through the side of the wall in the bathroom and I left it there for a while, just so he could see it. But he never tried to shoot me anymore. Thank God. But the beatings were…it was a lot.
She added, “You know what my grandmother said, eventually: ‘When a man beats you, he doesn’t like you. He has women issues and it starts probably with their mothers.’ And I said ‘You’re probably right.’”
