Women say "Straight Outta Compton" omits Dr. Dre's abusive past

"Straight Outta Compton" was No. 1 at the box office over the weekend, but there's one person who's glad she had no part in it: Dr. Dre's ex-girlfriend, Michel'le.

The singer, who dated Dre from 1990 to 1996, alleged the rapper gave her scars and broken bones and beat her regularly in an interview with Power 105.1's "Breakfast Club."

On Monday, Michel'le opened up again about her alleged painful past with Dre on YouTube channel Vlad TV. She said she's relieved that she is not mentioned in "Straight Outta Compton."

"Why would Dre put me in it?" she asked. "I mean 'cause if they start from where they start from I was just a quiet girlfriend who got beat up and told to shut up ... My part has no value to, probably, what they really want to talk about]."

When Rolling Stone asked Dre about his alleged assaults on Michel'le and TV host Dee Barnes, he didn't deny the claims.

"I made some f***ing horrible mistakes in my life," he said. "I was young, f***ing stupid. I would say all the allegations aren't true -- some of them are. Those are some of the things that I would like to take back. It was really f***ed up. But I paid for those mistakes, and there's no way in hell that I will ever make another mistake like that again."

On Tuesday, Barnes wrote a piece for Gawker about a time she says Dre beat her up (he pleaded no contest to assault charges).

"Dr. Dre straddled me and beat me mercilessly on the floor of the women's restroom at the Po Na Na Souk nightclub in 1991," she wrote. "That event isn't depicted in 'Straight Outta Compton,' but I don't think it should have been, either. The truth is too ugly for a general audience." At the same time, Barnes said she was surprised to see it was not mentioned at all and called the movie's depiction of the past "revisionist history."
