‘Straight Outta Compton’ Movie Blamed For Death of N.W.A.’s Former Manager

Published: Monday 5th Sep 2016 by Rashad

As fans of legendary rap group N.W.A. know, the group’s blockbuster biographical film, ‘Straight Outta Compton,’ was under fire by the group’s former manager, Jerry Heller, for his “misrepresentation” in the film.

Leading him to file a $110 million defamation suit against the film’s creators last year, recently surfaced reports indicate, sadly, Heller will not be able to see the ultimate conclusion of his battle against the emcees as he passed away last week.

According to the lawyers, ‘Straight Outta Compton’ is to blame for the 75-year-old’s death…


Jerry Heller was so distraught over the way he was portrayed in “Straight Outta Compton” it ultimately killed him … so says Heller’s attorney [Mickey Shapiro].

Mickey Shapiro tells TMZ ever since the movie came out painting Jerry as nothing but a crook, the former N.W.A. manager has been under a tremendous amount of stress. In fact — Shapiro says things were so bad — Jerry barely slept and was “heart broken” over the entire thing.

TMZ broke the story … Heller was in a car accident Friday around noon, the initial investigation states he may have suffered a medical emergency to cause the wreck. Shaprio says Jerry’s family has been told it appears he suffered a heart attack before the crash.

Mickey says he believes the heart attack was brought on by the stress from the film and tells, “Jerry Heller would be alive today if not for that movie.”

    Jerry Heller was your typical Jew thief. Preying on young black talent to make himself wealthy. Glad he’s dead hope he enjoys hell along with that fat creep Lou Pearlman.

      Couldn’t have said it any better myself! Even if it’s true, disenfranchised black people/POC are “misrepresented” in film & IRL all the time and you don’t see us crying wolf through lawsuits. $110 million? What a reach!? Stay burning in hell, Mark a$$ niqqa.

    That won’t hold up in court. That’s speculation & unless it came from his mouth as a complaint that was recorded then it’s hearsay

    People do disgusting things in their lives and freak out when they are presented with them. If it killed him it’s because his own conscience couldn’t take the weight on his disgusting and divisive antics. Good riddance to manipulative rubbish.
