michelle-surviving-compton-thatgrapejuice

90’s hitmaker and star of TV One’s ‘R&B Divas: LA’ Michel’le Toussaint (known mononymously as Michel’le) is finally getting her day via the highly anticipated biographical film ‘Surviving Compton:  Dre, Suge, and Michel’le.’

Airing tonight at 8/7c on Lifetime, the flick – intentionally premiering during Domestic Abuse Awareness Month – not only tells of Toussaint’s rise to fame, but primarily focuses on her highly publicized, tumultuous relationship with rap royal Dr. Dre before and during his time with legendary rap group N.W.A.  And, while Michel’le was never mentioned in the group’s blockbuster biopic, ‘Straight Outta Compton,’ released last year, she asserts her cinematic venture will highlight aspects of Dre’s life ‘Straight Outta Compton’ left out.
