Dr. Dre has something to share.
As his movie ‘Straight Outta Compton’ continues to rock and roll atop box offices worldwide the mogul has used this time to step forward to apologise to the women he assaulted before turning his life around.
His words below…
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. I’ve been married for 19 years and every day I’m working to be a better man for my family, seeking guidance along the way. 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.
Dre published the message above in The New York Times years after the mother one of his children (the singer Michel’le) came forward to reveal he had been physically abusive towards her during their relationship.
His words were joined by a statement from his business partners at Apple who shared:
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.
